If Jorien van den Herik were still chairman of Feyenoord, he would have pressured the KNVB together with PSV and Ajax to stop the Eredivisie. That says the former president in conversation with Voetbal International.
“Obviously we would have decided in the PAF consultation with PSV, Ajax and Feyenoord to stop playing football. There is now no football available and that will not be possible for the time being,” says Van den Herik in the weekly. “In our time we had exerted the necessary pressure on the KNVB and the smaller clubs probably worked a bit to go with us. That was how it used to be. At least I had the threat of UEFA to take European tickets. never accepted. “
Van den Herik believes that the KNVB is now hanging his ears to UEFA. “They postpone decisions for themselves and put forward mere fallacies for that. The KNVB hides behind UEFA and FIFA. They may say that you have to play the competitions, but we really determine that in the Netherlands,” says Van den Herik, who has not been chairman of Feyenoord since 2006.
