Martin van Geel hopes that Ruud Molder Wednesday night the Golden boot as best player of Belgium in 2016 wins. The technical director of Feyenoord sold the midfielder in the summer of 2014 at Club Brugge, where he became one of the best players in the country.

Shaper (28), along with his team-mate José Izquierdo and Lukasz Teodorczyk of Anderlecht nominated for the Golden Shoe, that Wednesday night during a gala will be awarded.

“I think it’s great for Ruud that he has been nominated,” says Van Geel, which like a red thread through the career of Former runs. In AZ, Roda JC and Feyenoord worked the two together.

“I follow Ruud as good as I can be from Rotterdam and have known him for a very long time. In my time In AZ was Ruud in the team of under-15 years, where he as a small middenveldertje played. He was a captain and very quick-tempered and passionate.”

At Roda JC grew Shaper is a controlling midfielder and he earned a transfer to Feyenoord. During his two seasons in Rotterdam, he knew not a hard move to obtain.

“At a big club like Feyenoord is a lot of competition”, explains a Yellow. “In his position we had with Rajiv van la parra a international. Two years Ruud competition entered into. He is a top professor All with him in the character of the football. He can accomplish nothing by itself blamed, but the real breakthrough as onomstoten basisspeler didn’t come.”

Shaper migrated from Feyenoord just over two years ago for Club Brugge. “He’s absolutely changed,” says Van Geel. “He plays more as a box-to-box midfielder and is a lot of all-rounder. At Feyenoord we saw a type-Pirlo in him, but on a different level.”

The development of Molder surprised Of Yellow. “To be honest, I had not thought that he is the best player of Belgium could be. He has given me a bit surprised. He is incredibly important for Bruges.”

Molder played for several Netherlands youth teams, but was never called for Orange. “If your champion is in Belgium, then Orange the next step”, can find of Yellow. “The Belgian league is similar to the Dutch level.”

“Shaper has Champions League and is long-term important high-level, then you should be eligible. Then, of course, to the coach, because there are also other options on his position.”


Yellow does not exclude the possibility that Former ever returning to The Cockpit, though it is not immediately obvious. “That is always difficult, but it is more often happening in football.”

“He is a better player,” Of Yellow. “At the moment we have a number of very good midfielders and there is no need to have a midfielder to pick up, but you never know. We have no regrets that we have him let you go, that can only happen if you take things ill-considered.”
