“The trainer chooses other players. That is his right,” Van der Heijden told De Telegraaf.

“But I know my own qualities and I don’t think I should sit on the bench with that. Even at Feyenoord.”

The former Vitesse defender’s contract with Feyenoord is set to expire at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
