Feyenoord chair 'should resign'

2 December 2006 14:26

ROTTERDAM, Dec 2 (Sw) - A commission instated to look into Feyenoord Rotterdam's financial and sporting woes has advised that current chairman Jorien van den Herik should go.

The Kerkum Commission has spent the last couple of weeks investigating the state of affairs at the Dutch outfit. The leaked report stated that the resignation of Van den Herik would be a necessary first step for the club to control the current situation.

Feyenoord's recent history is black, with bad performances on and off the pitch. This week, this has been exacerbated by serious crowd trouble during the UEFA cup match against Nancy.

Van den Herik has been the sole policy decider at Feyenoord for the last fifteen years. In recent years, Feyenoord has been in decline, much to the chagrin of the loyal fan base. The purchase of arch-rival Ajax's failed striker Angelos Charisteas at the start of the season to replace Dirk Kuyt was the prime flashpoint at which the Feyenoord fans knocked their club.

The fans have been especially vocal this season in their desire to oust the man known to them as "the Great Bald Leader".

As a lasting reform at the club, the commission advised that the club should no longer be led by a single individual, but rather by a full board of directors.
