Heitinga plans Ajax return and wants Barcelona moveBy Ryan Grant • Jun 3rd, 2010 • Category: News |
John Heitinga has done another interview that will cause a stir. The 26 year-old has now been mentioning some other clubs he could join.
I personally think that it’s a downright disgrace that John Heitinga – our player, is openly talking about moves to other clubs such as Manchester City, Ajax, Barcelona and Liverpool!
It was only a few days ago that number 5 John Heitinga said he’d play for City as he wants to play for a “bigger club” one day. This suggested to me that he sees Everton as a smaller club. “City have ambitions and I am always looking to move to a bigger club”. This angered me and presumably many Evertonians as we’ve been signing his praises and chanting his name with other fans at Goodison Park this season!
Now we are aware of another interesting interview with Heitinga, this time, the Dutch international defender says that he would not rule out a move to Liverpool. He says he’s got “no next employer in his head” but then bizarely goes on to say “joining another English club seems nice” and that he’d jump at the chance to join Barcelona: “if Barcelona comes, I’d go on a bicycle with a large flag toget there”.
John then goes on to say that he has plans to return to former club Ajax in the future “There is a return to Ajax also in the planning”.
See the full interview below.
“I have no next employer in my head, but I would still like to reach the top,” said Heitinga. “The chance that I could go to Liverpool is certainly very small, but joining another English club seems nice.
“And if Barcelona comes, I’d go on a bicycle with a large flag to get there.
“There is a return to Ajax also in the planning, but it should be no farewell tour. I would come back to win some more, otherwise it makes no sense.”
Here is a forums thread on this subject. Quote from michaelcorleone, forums moderator and Everton analyist: “They’re direct quotes. He is paid by us so should keep his trap shut. End of.”
