Edson Braafheid was under contract with Lazio between 2014 and 2016. In Rome the 34-year-old defender, currently active at FC Utrecht, played with Stefan de Vrij. Braafheid is talking to FOX Sports about the 25-year-old De Vrij, whose contract with Lazio expires this summer.
Stefan is an animal. He is not even at his top yet. The concentration errors he made in the Netherlands are completely out of it. Stefan can play so austere and has grown into one of the leading players at Lazio,”says Braafheid, who is still in regular contact with De Vrij,” He is certainly ready for a step up.
Stefan would not be out of place in England, because he is very strong defensive. But Stefan is also very good at football, so there may be a place for him at Barcelona, Real Madrid or in Germany. At a football club there is always a place for Stefan “, continues the defender of FC Utrecht. He thinks that Lazio has the qualities to make it far into the Europa League,”They have a good chance, but they are not the favourite to win the tournament”.
Do you agree with Edson Braafheid?
