Verhoek committed to ADO cause

The striker insists his current club have a great chance of

succeeding in the Eredivisie Europa League play-offs. The

24-year-old Verhoek came through the ranks at ADO and is contracted

until next summer. He has refuted ongoing claims in the media that

he is set to leave for Ajax at the end of the current campaign.

“I’m getting a little tired of the media and their claims I have

joined Ajax already,” he told Haaglanden Football. “There’s nothing

to do with Ajax and again I am having a great time here and I just

want to stay.” Defeat against defending champions and current

league leaders FC Twente on Friday dented ADO’s chances of

finishing higher up the table, but Verhoek thinks they save their

best performances for the big games and that will help them in the

end-of-season Europa League play-offs. “I’ve said before, we play

our best games against the top teams in the Netherlands,” he said.

“I have had a great season and want help Den Haag bring European

football here. Our game certainly offers good prospects for the

playoffs.”
