Feynoord claims compensation from Denmark over Tomasson injury

Rotterdam football club Feyenoord has made a million euro claim against the Danish football association because of the injuries sustained by Jon Dahl Tomasson during the World Cup in South Africa, the Telegraaf reports.

The striker has been out of action since then, with serious hamstring and tendon injuries.
Feyenoord claims that despite being injured, the Danish coach kept Tomasson on the field for a further 10 minutes because he had used up all his substitutes and that this made the problems worse.
Feyenoord is in financial trouble and has been near the bottom of the premier league all season.
On Wednesday, the Dutch football association and Bayern Munich settled their dispute over Arjen Robben’s World Cup injuries by agreeing the two sides would play a friendly.
