Mercenary Diks feels quickly at home in ‘Liverpool family’
Kevin Diks seems to take its turn at Feyenoord to have found. The right back, who by the Rotterdam for a season is rented from Fiorentina, had Sunday with two assists and a considerable share in the 5-0 victory over Willem II.
Diks was against Willem II close to his first goal for Feyenoord, but his header in the thirteenth minute, was a close extended by Jens Toornstra (1-0). Also at 3-0, the second goal of Toornstra, was Diks the principal.
The 20-year-old defender looks back with a good feeling on his early days with the champion. “The first weeks were sometimes tricky, but I’m pleased with it,” says Diks against NUsport.
“It took some time for me to adapt to the playing style of the Team, but the cast of actors is really a family. That makes me feel really welcome. I am well included in the group and we go a lot with each other, which is nice.”
Diks can only be content with the start of the champion, who with three wins is a leader in the Eredivisie. “I am satisfied with the way in which we have won from Willem II. Against Excelsior last week went a lot more difficult.”

Shortly before the fifth hit against Willem II there was a curious moment. Jean-Paul Boëtius troefde Michiel Kramer with the game of paper-rock-scissors to determine who the penalty should take. Boëtius lap, then touch from eleven metres.
“I have the paper-rock-scissors is not seen,” says Diks. “I heard sudden laughter from the stands. I looked around and saw that Jean-Paul and Michael to laugh. It is perhaps as honest a way to determine who the penalty is allowed to take.”

By the early elimination of Ajax and PSV Feyenoord are the only club from the traditional top three this season European play. The heavier program, according to Diks not a disadvantage to be in the title.
“As a football club you should just three times in seven days can perform. I think it’s quite good comes with the support of the physical trainers all around us.”
In the Champions League was the Club last Thursday for the group stage linked to Shakhtar Donetsk, Manchester City and Napoli. It was for Diks his first uefa Champions League-draw. “I was sitting with tension on the couch. We are sitting in a beautiful pool. I think it’s a piece of beautiful posters.”
“I already said to my girlfriend that the draw is much heavier. In the Cockpit is for us really anything is possible in this group,” says Diks.
He wants to know nothing of a third place as the objective. “You play the Champions League to continue. We want to hibernate and it would be silly to say that we are for the third place.”
