‘Volendam pays first installment to Monaco, wallet Feyenoord empty’


At Feyenoord people expect a lot from acquisition Francesco Antonucci. However, the club from Rotterdam cannot yet have the attacker available next season. Antonucci is first rented out to FC Volendam for a year, since Feyenoord would otherwise not have been able to let the transfer go through.

It Algemeen Dagblad paints a picture of the poor financial situation of the Rotterdam club. Feyenoord could not have brought Antonucci to the Netherlands without the help of Volendam, the club did not have sufficient financial resources available for this.

Volendam pays the first payment term for the player, which cost 2.2 million euros. Feyenoord will pay for the remainder of the amount as soon as enough money has been brought in. Should Antonucci leave De Kuip in the future and yield a substantial transfer fee, Volendam will also receive a part of this.

Antonucci’s figures from his time at Volendam are not very convincing, however. He fired 89 times, but only 35 of those shots ended up between the posts. He scored ten goals and four assists.
