The sad news not only for Trencin’s football family came a few hours after the historic advance in the Europa League UEFA. At the age of 80 years passed away on Friday evening, a Dutch physiotherapist Dick van Toorn. Legendary modern shaman, as media nicknamed experienced specialist, also worked for AS Trencin. To Trencin’s club come’s along with club owner Mr. Tschen La Ling. Since then helped many of our players.

One of the most popular physiotherapists of the time all life range in the football environment and list of the client names is literally impressive. He helped to famos football players as Johan Cruijff, Ruud Krol, Hristo Stoichkov, José Maria Baker, Ronald Koeman, Robert Prosinecki, Marco van Basten, Ruud Gullit, Jean-Marie Pfaff, Erik Gerets, Predrag Mijatovic, Rafael van der Vaart, Wesley Sneijder, but the Czech tennis player Jana Novotna.

Dick van Toorn worked using untraditional methods. Results of his work, however, were unquestionable. In memory it has also Arjen Robben, who in 2008, according to therapists Real Madrid pulled muscle and should pause for five weeks. He did come back to the pitch after fourteen days. "I will not say anything negative against medical team of Real Madrid. But I'm working differently. I have to say, I opened their eyes," said when Van Toorn at that time.

Unusual methods confirmed also our captain Milos Volesak. "He has interest methods. We all thought that pulled muscle healing is about not using it. He had always opposite opinion. It is necessary to load the muscle right away. This opinion is beyond standard situation to which we were accustomed in Slovakia. After the sculpture of the knees and checked up he suggested special exercises that I should do. I took them in his specially modified gym. There are also devices that I have never seen in my life. If someone is injured, so there must exercise a three times a day throughout the all week, including weekends," said three years ago for Volesak.

Dick van Toorn was outstanding and for our club was honor to with such a professional caliber. He also helped set the path that we walk today. Honor his memory!
