After eight years still furious at Cambuur: ‘I just worked out the door’


Mark de Vries is still angry with SC Cambuur. The former attacker really wanted to stay with the club from Leeuwarden in 2012, but the contract with the long striker was terminated by the Cambuur policymakers in a letter.

That meant that the attack leader entered his final contract year with no prospect of a future and playing time. De Vries then went viral with an interview at FOX Sports, in which he cryingly indicated that he ‘wanted to play football so badly’. The situation is still not right for him eight years later. “I understand that that letter had to be sent then”, says De Vries to Omrop Fryslan. “But it is now eight years later, so I can say it now.”

The former target man does not hold back. “I didn’t want to mention the word insult or humiliation, but according to my agent I was not allowed to leave the club. It was also not humiliation, but I thought to myself: you want to keep me small. You don’t want me at the club. . ”

De Vries thinks that Cambuur’s decision has had a major impact on the last years of his football career. “I just wanted food balls. If I had left, I could have played another 1 or 2 years. Then I also said: you don’t have to offer me anything, I don’t want to work with you anymore. I’m just the door. worked out. ”
