Feyenoord coach gets cash for players

New Feyenoord coach Mario Been has been given cash to strengthen his squad, despite the Rotterdam club’s financial problems, the Telegraaf reports on Monday.

‘I know that there are people who want to help us financially so we can strengthen our team,’ Been told reporters after a training session at the weekend.
Feyenoord has debts of some €20m and needs external backers to attract new players.
Spanish right back Dani Fernandez was brought to the club using such a construction and Been wants to do the same to bring in a strong central defender and striker. ‘And perhaps a keeper as well,’ Been told the paper.
‘We are talking about a good amount of money,’ Been said but declined to say how much. ‘It is money which will really allow us to become stronger,’ he was quoted as saying.
Feyenoord ended last season seventh in the league.
