Challenge named Feyenoord, still Zabrze awaits us first

Monday draw of the third qualifying round of the Europa league was somehow special for the Dutch part of our cabin. It decided that the A-team led by Ricardo Moniz or Górnik Zabrze will play against Feyenoord Rotterdam.

„We can’t say, that we have problems with motivation. This is just a bonus. It would be special. We need to fight for this special match first. There is Zabrze in our way. Then we can talk about Feyenoord. There are two important matches against the Polish opponents ahead of us,“ said the native from Amsterdam Achraf El Mahdioui.

Joey Sleegers spent nearly ten years in the academy of Feyenoord. „I have a lot of friends and former teammates in Feyenoord. Still there are Polish awaiting us first. We have to prepare for them. There are two matches ahead of us. It is an interesting draw. It can only help us. We don’t feel any pressure, instead we feel the chance to go further in the Europa league,“ said the Dutch winger.

„We talked shortly about Feyenoord. We told guys about the atmosphere on a stadium. However, there is Gornik ahead of us. We need to go step by step. It is important to be able to get prepared for every single match. The match against Polish is equally important as any other. Doesn’t mater, if we play against Ružomberok, Rotterdam or Rostov,“ said Philippe van Arnhem.

Desley Ubbink also spent some time in a jersey of Feyenoord. He wished for this opponent already before the start of the Europa league. „When they showed our potential opponents, I said it’s gonna be Feyenoord. It could be a great experience for everyone. We know, what we have to do to get there. A year ago we had the chance to play against Petrohrad, but we didn’t manage it righ. We think high about the game against Gornik, but we respect their quality. We don’t want to make the same mistake as last year,“ added Ubbink.
