Groningen and Fortuna do not reach agreement due to Ultee resignation: ‘He doubted’

FC Groningen player Daniël van Kaam definitely does not leave for Fortuna Sitbard. A transition from the 22-year-old midfielder seemed to be in the works, until Sjors Ultee received his resignation letter.
Van Kaam was already in Sitté for the medical examination, when he heard of Ultee‘s resignation. That fell raw on his roof, says Sjoerd Ars, technical manager at Fortuna, to Voetbal International. Ultee played an important role in Van Kaam’s upcoming transfer. One of his reasons for coming here suddenly fell away. Van Kaam indicated that at FC Groningen he has experienced in recent years how important the trust of a trainer is. He started to doubt.
Understandable, but I did say: If you come, I want you to support that one hundred percent, continues Ars. By mutual agreement, it was decided to refrain from cooperation. The transfer has been ricocheted, emphasizes the technical manager, who hopes to win another reinforcement for the midfield in the last days of the transfer period.
