Eijer enjoy now to the fullest of the Premier league adventure with Fortuna Sittard, even though it is physically heavier than he was used to. “But it is to do. There are things that are too heavy. The veldtraining give I can not more and, therefore, it is good that we are working in teamwork. Some parts take Kevin Hofland and Kristof Aelbrecht for their account, other things I do again and a lot of what we do together. That works great, because each has its own qualities.”

I remember very well that his father Hub him of the football, and threatened to pick up, because he did not at the secondary school. I said: ’Do not be silly, Kevin, is a boy who the qualities has for the football to get it.” But his dad insisted that he did his graduation and he was, of course, immediately, because the football is an uncertain adventure. If you – as happened to me – a disease or you tear a cruciate ligament, it also can just last. Then it is good that you have a diploma.”
