Van Hoijdonk on his way to Fenerbahce
ISTANBUL, July 7 (SW) - Feyenoord Striker Pierre van Hooijdonk will most likely sign for Istanbul based club Fenerba?e, reports Turkish newspaper Hurriyet today.
"Pi-Air" was a very important part of the Feyenoord team that managed to win the UEFA Cup in 2002.
The transfer will be more attractive for the player himself, than for the club; Van Hooijdonk is expected to earn about 2.2 million Euros while the whole transfer will gain Feyenoord less than a million Euros.
Van Hooijdonk also played in England and Portugal but never really got into the spotlights in his own country, other than being known as "Pinch-hitter" for the Dutch national team. With his return to Holland, playing for Feyenoord, he earned a reputation as one of the best free kick specialists of Europe.
