Rotterdam football club Feyenoord ended this football season with a loss of between €3m and €4m, general manager Eric Gudde told news agency ANP on Wednesday.
Gudde made the statement after announcing that talks with potential investors in the club had been broken off.
‘That will bring our total debt to some €21m. We have drawn up a three year plan to make a profit and get rid of our debts, because €21m must not be allowed to become €22m,’ ANP quoted Gudde as saying.
Expensive players such as Roy Makaay, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Denny Landzaat and Kevin Hofland do not have to go ‘but of course we are keeping our eyes and ears open’, he said. A transfer-free move for a player is not on the cards at the moment but that could change if it became necessary, Gudde was quoted as saying.
Feyenoord ended this season seventh in the premier league. The club will play NAC Breda on Thursday afternoon for a place in next year’s Uefa Cup competition.
