Orlando Engelaar

The Julio Baptista lookalike no one outside of Holland probably had heard of before today

but what a game from him today

For those not familiar with him. He actually comes from Feyenoords academy but never broke through with us. First played as a striker I believe (thanks to his height) but then he went to NAC Breda where he under Henk ten Cate did well in midfield.

He then went off to Racing Genk in Belgium (this after there was talk of him going back to Feyenoord but apparently we bid too little) and there was even talk of him becoming a Belgian international as he did well there which he luckily for us didn't become. For some reason, a season later he dell from grace at Genk and then he turned up at Twente after Feyenoord again turned down the opportunity of getting him.

At Twente he's really made his mark and he along with a couple of other players is the reason why Twente will be in the Champions League next season and not Ajax or Feyenoord. His side really did well this season playing good football too.

Problem is Twente probably will get raided this summer. They've already lost Karim El Ahmadi, a midfielder, to Feyenoord (cost us 5 million euros) and Engelaar along with Douglas, their Brazilian defender look to be next on the list to go. Oh yes and off course Steve McClaren could still become their new manager.


Going back to Engelaar. Schalke '04 so far have been the only side really interested in Engelaar and so far they've made bids of 4 million and 5,5 million euros. Twente want 8 million euros(which most people would have laughed at in the beginning of the season) but looks like they may well get it for the 28 year old....from whom...we'll see
