John Heitinga has admitted that fellow Dutchman Royston Drenthe made it “very difficult for himself” at Everton.
Heitinga: “Royston made it very difficult for himself. Moyes isn´t a hard coach to get along with, he had more than enough patience with him. I´m not going into details here, that´s something for the respective parties to do, if they feel like it.
“It´s a shame how it all went though. Royston is a very gifted player. I hope he´ll be able to find a good club this summer, so he can get the best out of his career. I really wish him the best of luck.”
“I tried to talk with him while he was at Everton, but in the end it has to come from the player himself. I advised him to focus on the left back spot at Oranje. Not at Everton though, because Leighton Baines is without doubt the best left back I´ve ever played with.”
“I hope he stays at the club, but I understand there´s interest elsewhere”.
