Southampton allowed Jordy Clasie to return to Feyenoord on a season-long loan deal last summer.
The midfielder has not had a great season and earlier this month, he claimed there’s been a ‘lot of negativity’ around him. Recent events have underlined his disappointing time with the Eredivisie club… off the pitch as well.
Last weekend, when Giovanni van Bronckhorst took him off against Heracles, the 27-year-old did not shake hands with his manager and then threw his kit.
De Telegraaf reported on Tuesday the Netherlands international has been fined for his behaviour.
Another Dutch outlet FR-Fans.nl carried a survey to ask fans if Feyenoord’s decision to fine Clasie was fair.
The results showed 61% of fans did not agree with the club’s decision to let go of the player by fining him as they wanted a ‘heavier sanction’.
The other 39% are satisfied with the way Feyenoord have handled the situation.
One of the fans went as far as commenting: “I don’t understand why you make a loan player reserve captain. You could have made [Eric] Botteghin or Jan-Arie van der Heijden the leader? In addition, I do not understand Clasie’s loan…”
That’s hardly glowing.
Unless things change hugely, the midfielder will be Southampton’s problem again in the summer.
