One thought on “Flying Dutchman Signs For Arsenal On This Day, 17th June 1997

  1. Superb purchase. Signed for 5.5 million pounds.
    For Ajax, scored an average ratio of 1 goal in 4 games. For Arsenal, same ratio. Not bad for a winger. If only today’s wingers at Arsenal could match that.
    Left us too soon… sold to Barcelona for 25 million pounds.

    Couldn’t recall above info from memory (info from wiki), but have good memories of this man.
