Brad Jones is happy that he is now his competitor Kenneth Vermeer again, fit is preferred under the crossbar for Feyenoord, but the Australian charges are still not rich for the rest of the season.

“A few days ago told trainer Giovanni van Bronckhorst that I would continue to goalkeeping, but he has not so much to say that I really the first keeper am,” says the 34-year-old Jones against NUsport. “He said only that I keep playing.”

Jones sees the decision of Van Bronckhorst, especially, as a logical consequence of the results of the Rotterdam club, who in the battle for the championship title is still five points ahead of number two Ajax.

“The team is doing well, and we are stable. So there was not really reason to change anything. For Kenneth, that is maybe difficult, because now he is a top keeper and now he is fit again, he wants to play. But he comes here very professional.”

Record

In favor of Jones says that Feyenoord Sunday against ADO Den Haag (0-1) for the sixth time in a row without tegengoal remained in the Premier league. The former goalkeeper of Liverpool and NEC established thereby a record, because never loved a club so long as the zero after the turn of the year.

“It is beautiful, a clean sheet,” Jones. “But we are not there yet. For me, there will still be eleven clean sheets this season. And certainly next week in the top match against PSV.”

Jones also stresses that it is not only thanks to him is that Feyenoord is so often the zero manages to keep. “I am the rest of the team is grateful. Everyone does his work and this is only because we keep it close in the back.”

“So it went against ADO also. It was difficult, already has ADO not have very many opportunities. By as a unit to fight, we won again and we are again a little closer to the great goal, the title.”
