Jabba's Comments

A left-sided attacking player we got on loan who was given the number of Lee Sharpe, a left-sided attacking player we let go on loan. Looked reasonable in his few appearances, but was tapped up by GG and Spurs, so refused to sign a perfectly reasonable contract that he was offered by Leeds. His first season at Spurs was ruined by injury, and it looks like Leeds might have staged a lucky escape by not signing him.

In the end he was forced to retire from the game with a hip injury in October 2001 and in 2002 he returned to his hometown club of Nijmegen as a coach.
