‘It is political’
According to Elia, the allegations “one hundred percent bullshit. “It is political, there is a new prosecutor who wants to score. At least, that is my feeling.”
On the question of whether or not it would be better if Elijah is only on football focus, says the Feyenoorder: “Hey, football is my first priority! This was not to attract attention to attract attention. This is serious. Sometimes you have to stand up and mean something for friends in need. The game was silent. It affects my football further.”
