Teun Koopmeiners is in the interest of AS Roma. That confirmed the captain of AZ, who took a historic red card against Willem II and is therefore probably the victim of the US. Still, it was nice how the news of interest got into the news, because the Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport made a blunder.
There was talk about the interest of Roma in Koopmeiners, but a photo of the wrong Koopmeiners was added to the article. Peer, Teun’s younger brother who plays football at Jong AZ, was depicted large in the pink sports newspaper.
“Of course I had to laugh about it, that was quite funny within our family. I must say that my thoughts are not part of this at the moment, but the interest is there”, explained the eldest Koopmeiners. “We will see what happens next. I will not go into any further interest. I know you would like to hear that, but that is not the case now.”
Koopmeiners got red after a wild charge on Willem II player Vangelis Pavlidis. Rightly so, according to Koopmeiners himself and trainer Pascal Jansen. “It’s a nasty one. Not consciously, he wants to correct his bad assumption, but it is rightly red,” said the coach in front of the camera. ESPN.
