Feyenoord will have to do without defender Bart Nieuwkoop in the coming weeks. The right back suffered a hamstring injury during training this week. According to Feyenoord’s medical staff, trainer Dick Advocaat, “at least for the next few weeks”, cannot rely on Nieuwkoop.
The almost 25-year-old defender played 19 games for Feyenoord this season. Nieuwkoop started in the base in the last 3 league matches. At the time, the lawyer preferred him to Lutsharel Geertruida, who also often played in the right back this season. With Nieuwkoop in the team, Feyenoord played a draw against FC Twente and FC Groningen and lost at AZ.
The Rotterdammers, who are in 5th place in the premier league, will play against VVV-Venlo in De Kuip on Saturday.
