Van Stee nuances statements about Okoye millions: ‘Manfred forgot the bonuses’

Henk van Stee, Technical Director of Sparta, has responded to the statements of Managing Director Manfred Laros. It stated earlier this week that Maduka Okoye leaving Watford would not yield seven million, but five million euros gross: Van Stee, however, nuances this.
Sparta made Okoye‘s transfer world ly on Monday 8 November and the Algemeen Dagblad was able to report that De Kasteelheren would raise seven million. Van Stee responds to the same AD to the recent statements by colleague Laros. โ€œI’m glad that Manfred is transparent. I believe that Sparta should be transparent at all times, as it should be with a football club. This is how you keep supporters connected to you.โ€
The core of Larosexplanation is correct, emphasizes Van Stee. โ€œThe guaranteed amount of five million for Okoye is right. But Manfred has forgotten to name the possible bonuses. The amount may still increase considerably in the coming years.โ€ However, that money will not be used for interim reinforcements. โ€œAlso because the money for Okoye doesn’t come in at once. This is going in stages.โ€
