Johan Derksen: ’Nonsense to be afraid of The Mole’

It may be seen as the transfer professionals in the netherlands; the transition from Johan Derksen, René van der Jibe and Wilfred Genee of RTL to the Veronica of John de Mol. Afraid of the dreaded mediamagnaat are the lords of the Veronica Inside, however. Derksen: “What a crock.”

Wilfred Genee, René van der Jibe and Johan Derksen.

In conversation with Dutch tv-guide Veronica tells the trio how it sees the future cooperation with The Mol. “We have no burden of autoriteitenvrees,” says Derksen. “I also find it really nonsense to be afraid of John de Mol. We respect him very much, though. The man has also done a fantastic job. But all that cowboyverhalen here from Hilversum that everyone in the stress hits as John the property enters… What a crock.”

While the mustachioed voetbalanalist with colleague Van der Jibe somewhat aloof loved all of the negotiations, it was Genee that his leg stiff loved. “Wilfred is our business leader,” says Derksen. “That has a watertight contract is governed. John should us a hand, but more may he not do in our program.”

Criminal cases

The Mole was far for a signature of the voetbalmannen and offered according to the presenter, Genee possibilities. “He wanted our love to have and then you can easily make arrangements. And he also knows that the strength of the program understand the uniqueness and that we are able to say. Yes, no criminal things, of course, about things like child pornography, but we already have that years said what we wanted and he understands really well that you don’t have to go tinker with it. I have to be sure, when we went to draw, three times said to him: ’John, you really need to know for sure? Know where to start, you can now go back!’ But he remained there, he knew what he was doing.”

“All that cowboyverhalen here from Hilversum that everyone in the stress hits as John the property enters… What a crock.”

Although Derksen with his 70-year retirement age by now more than achieved, know the former editor-in-chief of Voetbal International do not cease. “I wanted it to stop. But uncle John demanded the same composition. He said: ’If one of you drops out, then I will not’. So when I said, ” Well, then we go with the three of them for four years’. And everyone was happy. Except my wife.”
