Babos opnieuw in beeld bij Feyenoord
[ Voetbal International ]


Feyenoord heeft het afgelopen halfjaar twee keer geïnformeerd naar de mogelijkheid Gábor Babos (28) over te nemen van NAC Breda. De doelman stond twee jaar geleden ook al in de belangstelling van de Rotterdammers, maar destijds koos Feyenoord voor Edwin Zoetebier. De huidige tweede doelman kwam over van Vitesse, omdat NAC op het allerlaatste moment meer geld wilde hebben dan de eerder besproken vraagprijs. De Hongaar behoort sinds zijn komst naar Nederland in 2000 tot de beste doelmannen in het Nederlandse betaalde voetbal.

Babos zegt zelf nog niets te weten van een mogelijke transfer naar Feyenoord. “De interesse die ik ken dateert alweer van twee jaar geleden en toen is het niet doorgegaan,” aldus de keeper.

Babos begon zijn carrière in zijn vaderland bij Soproni LC en speelde later vijf seizoenen voor MTK Boedapest. Eerder verklaarde hij in Voetbal International graag op een hoger niveau te willen spelen: “Met NAC speel ik graag tegen de Top Drie. Grote, mooie wedstrijden in een vol stadion. En in de Europese wedstrijden met MTK Boedapest merkte ik dat het speciale duels zijn. De sfeer, entourage en beleving is totaal anders dan tijdens een competitiewedstrijd. Ik hou daar wel van.” NAC Breda-coach Henk ten Cate, die de doelman ook meemaakte in de tijd dat hij trainer was van MTK Boedapest, liet onlangs nog weten dat Babos wat hem betreft toe is aan een grotere club.

Feyenoord heeft met Patrick Lodewijks en Edwin Zoetebier twee volwaardige keepers onder contract, maar beiden zijn de dertig gepasseerd. Lodewijks is 36 jaar, Zoetebier wordt in mei 33. Carlo l’Ami (37) liep dit seizoen een schouderblessure op en het is nog de vraag of Feyenoord verder wil met de derde doelman.

Feyenoord-trainer Bert van Marwijk zegt niet op zoek te zijn naar een nieuwe keeper. “Zoals het nu gaat zeker niet,” aldus Van Marwijk. “Lodewijks en Zoetebier hebben allebei ook nog een contract. In ben ontzettend tevreden over mijn keepers, al moet je als topclub wél alert blijven op de transfermarkt. Want regeren is immers vooruitzien.

I'll summarize the relevant parts briefly!

It says that Feyenoord has inquired twice about Babos transfer price in the last half year. Feyenoord were interested in Babos a few years ago, but his transfer to Feyenoord collapsed after NAC asked too much money.

He has stated in the past in a Dutch footie mag that he wants to play on a higher level plus he stated how much he loved European football (looking back at his time at MTK). Babos coach Henk Ten Cate also agrees that Babos deserves a move to a bigger club!

and we'd welcome Babos with open arms :)

What's the news with Csaba Fehér ....I hear Feyenoord want him to...whats the latest?:)
Wally said:
I haven't heard any rumours in the Dutch media about him coming to Feyenoord. But it would make sense if we were scouting him since at least one of our two right sided players Kalou or Emerton is likely to leave in the summer. Once again we'd welcome Feher with open arms:D

Several times there has been rumours about Feher coming to Feyenoord. If Emmo leaves, which is likely on the one hand as his contract expires in 2004 and which is not because he has not played like last season and the downfall in football moneywise, he'll be a candidate again. He was also named as a probable back-up for Bosvelt and successor when he retires, but now we have Acuna, this is less relevant.

As Wall said, we'd welcome both with open arms:) :cool:

I also posted this in the Feyenood forum:) , it's from www.feyenoordnet.nl the official supporter's site:

Now this is really great news:

NAC en Feyenoord praten over een mogelijke overgang van keeper Gabor Babos naar Rotterdam, zo meldt BN/DeStem. "Het is allemaal nog heel prematuur, maar er lopen gesprekken", aldus NAC's interim-directeur Willem van der Hoeven. Onderwerp van gesprek is ook een mogelijke spelersruil tussen de beide clubs.

Babos staat allang op het verlanglijstje van Feyenoord. Eerder kaatste een transfer af op de prijs die NAC voor de Hongaarse keeper vroeg. De Bredase club zou vijf miljoen euro hebben gevraagd, Feyenoord wilde niet verder gaan dan vier miljoen.

Feyenoord heeft zich inmiddels weer gemeld bij NAC, vraag en aanbod zouden rond de 2,5 miljoen euro liggen. Ook is er een mogelijkheid dat in ruil voor Babos één of meerdere spelers vanuit Rotterdam naar NAC komen. "Feyenoorders mogelijk, of spelers van Excelsior. Ik heb wel wat namen voorbij zien komen. Nee, Van Hooijdonk zat daar niet bij", aldus Van der Hoeven.

Kees Ploegsma, zaakwaarnemer van Babos, meldt dat Feyenoord enige tijd geleden heeft laten weten geïnteresseerd te zijn in de Hongaars international. "Ze zeiden toen dat ze zich later weer zouden melden."

Bij Feyenoord strijden momenteel Edwin Zoetebier en Patrick Lodewijks om een plek in de goal. Beide keepers hebben nog een doorlopend contract. NAC heeft door de financiële problemen een aantal spelers duidelijk in de etalage gezet.

Gepubliceerd zaterdag 26 april 2003


Short summary in English: Feyenoord and Nac are talking about a transfer of Babos to Feyenoord. Feyenoord was after Babos before, but then the gap between asking price (5M) and what Feyenoord wanted to pay (4M) was too big. The price that both can agree upon will be around 2.5M. Also the trade with some Feyenoord player is mentioned.

I'd like to see him there too.

I've said all along he's most likely to go there...and I always like to look like a smartarse :D

however this article ain't as positive,

Feyenoord still chasing Babos
sportinglife.com

Feyenoord have revived their interest in NAC Breda goalkeeper Gabor Babos and hope to complete the Hungarian's signing this summer.

They have followed up their failed bid of £2.5million from last year with a new offer, but NAC are not thought to be ready to sell at £1.75m, which is Feyenoord's current valuation.

Feyenoord are also prepared to offer players as part of the deal, although they have not disclosed who might be used in part exchange.

The Rotterdammers are thought to be bidding lower than they did last year because of the lack of transfer market activity since, and the general lack of funds among Eredivisie clubs.

NAC refused to discuss the deal last year, but talks have opened over the deal now.

NAC director Willem van der Hoeven insists the transfer is far from complete, and Babos may well stay put in Breda.

"It's still pretty premature, but we are speaking with each other," he told the BN/De Stem newspaper.

He had a good game today from what the highlights showed on ned2.
nice save from a free-kick and a couple of other blocks.
but it would of been bad if he let any of them in though.


I just hope Feijenoord qualify for the champions league again for next season.

Latest news aint that good. NAC want a million euros for Babos but Feyenoord ONLY want to get him for free in exchange for some cannon fodder. This accrording to Babos' agent Stan Valckx.
:(

07-05-2003: Overstap Babos naar Feyenoord op laag pitje
[Bron: Voetbalzone.nl en VI]

In Voetbal International valt te lezen dat de kans klein lijkt dat Gabor Babos aan het einde van het seizoen naar Feyenoord vertrekt. Dit zegt zaakwaarnemer Stan Valckx. Nac, de huidige club van Babos, zou één miljoen euro willen ontvangen voor Babos, maar Feyenoord wil alleen spelers ruilen tegen de Hongaarse sluitpost.

Wow, Feyenoord must be in financial trouble too if they don't even want to pay 1 Million for a quality player like Babos. I wouldn't know who they want to exchange besides the cripple Collen.

Scaremongerer:fero: :tongue:

No, we are trying to rip off NAC with Collen and Leonardo 2. Sadly enough Bert van Marwijk has also said that Zoetebier will be back in goal next season!:mad:

No, looking for Wapenaar who wasn't good enough for us (he enjoyed his educaton at us) is smart. Why don't you guys have already bought Babos? He's been linked to Ajax numerous times as well

How reliable is this latest article?

because it seem's a player like Babos to go for less than £1 mill is a joke.

my feeling's are he is the best goalie in holland with only Waterreus coming close to him...Barca are after him as were Arsenal untill work permit problem saw to that.
and also as you said Ajax.

and I thought his agent was sandor varga :confused:
who had plenty to say on English TV about his "move" to Arsenal.

NAC have financial problems and are like many other Dutch clubs (not Feyenoord, Ajax or PSV btw) receiving grants from their local councils to stay afloat. So it could be possible that NAC will be forced to sell him for a basement price and that Feyenoord are just holding out, trying to get him for even less :devil:

Yes , Sandor Varga, he seems to be in charge of many East European football players, like spurs's Sergei Rebrov!:) would me more likely for him to be Babos agent imo!

We only want him as back-up goalie not as first goalie. Lobont is doing fine so we don;t need Babos. If I'm right you also have someone between the posts now that wasn't good enough for another topteam.

Waterreus wasn't exactly a star in the first few seasons he was at PSV. ie: his blunder when he thumped the ball straight to Nygaard who scored from 30 yards, hitting the ball into an empty net. PLus Waterreus made that blunder recently against NEC. I don;t rate him! he also flaps at crosses.
Lodewijks is like a fine wine. He is riping at an old age just like Peter Schmeichel is now at Man City!

going back to the topic, Babos is superior to any of them:cool:

Yes your right Sándor Varga has a lot of East Euro clients .. including Oleh Luzsnyij & Rebrov.

:D

Is Babos actually Hungarys first choice goalie? or is Herthas Kiraly the first choice? I see Kiraly as this goalie who can make incredible saves but I'm not too sure how he is other than that!
