Nieuwkoop enjoys Belgian revelation: Didnt know about the club

Bart Nieuwkoop made a somewhat striking transition from Feyenoord to Belgian PhD student Union Sint-Gilles during the summer transfer period. The defender has played in the base at the surprise of the current Jupiler Pro League season.
Saint-Gilles is currently first at the highest level in Belgium. Nieuwkoop has been brought with caution, but is now an appreciated base player. In my last few months at Feyenoord, I had an injury, he says in conversation with the Algemeen Dagblad. The people here immediately made me clear to want to take me easy. I hadnt played for a long time, we started building it slowly. In preparation we played eleven practice games, but I didnt play 90 minutes once.
Due to the corona crisis, the transfer period was different than Nieuwkoop was used to. You noticed that corona transfers had become more difficult for many clubs. They wanted to finish the season first and then see how it looked financially. But Union wanted to go straight away, the back continues.
I didnt know about the club, Nieuwkoop laughs like that. They had sent a presentation and I started looking for information on the internet. The people at Union invited me, gave me another presentation, and it all looked really good. I got really excited.
