This coming Sunday, the meeting between Feyenoord and Ajax will be on the programme.Joël Veltman keeps good memories of 2014’s De Klassieker, when the defender in De Kuip made the winning 1-2 “A wonderful feeling”, says the current leader of the Amsterdammers on the club site.
Three years later, Veltman was able to keep that hit in mind:”If I remember correctly, a corner was bought through.Together with Niklas (Moisander red.) I walked to the second pole:” Teammate Moisander headed the ball against Jordy Clasie and the rebound was a breeze for Veltman:”Clasie took the ball just off the goal line, in second instance I shot into the ball”.
Since 2009, there are no more supporters welcome at the Classic classics, so there were no fans of Ajax in De Kuip who could celebrate the goal of Veltman,”I usually go to our supporters at goals in away matches.Because there were no supporters, it became a moment of its own.That too was a wonderful feeling.The images speak for themselves how that was.
The defender says that the duels with the Rotterdammers are always special:”When you arrive at the Kuip, it’s always a crazy house.Nowhere else are we playing in such a hostile atmosphere as Feyenoord.You will be scolded out there in all sorts of ways, which gives me energy to work extra hard and win from those guests.
What do you expect from Feyenoord – Ajax?
