Merab Jordania left Vitesse about five years ago. Nevertheless, he is still following the Eredivisie with interest and is of the opinion that the level has dropped even further in recent years. Yet the Georgian still sees more than enough talent walking around on the Dutch fields.
In conversation with Football International, Jordan is wondering aloud what has happened in recent years,”Feyenoord against Manchester City, for example. Those were jochies against men. I am disappointed by the level of the Eredivisie,”said Jordania, who looks at Ajacied Frenkie de Jong with admiration,” Long ago I saw such a great talent. It is dangerous to compare him to Johan Cruijff, but I’m sure to see similarities at the ball. It will reach the world summit.
Philippe Sandler, who will leave PEC Zwolle for Manchester City next summer, is also impressing Jordan. He compares the Dutch youth international with Virgil van Dijk, the mandekker of Liverpool that he once wanted to bring to Vitesse from FC Groningen,”he costed a few million. When they heard that one Jordanania had an interest in Vitesse, the amount was doubled. We already had Guram Kashia and we took off. When he went to Liverpool, I laughed about it with a few friends,”Van Dijk recently made the transfer from Southampton to Liverpool for 85.4 million euros.
