SC Cambuur will take on SC Heerenveen in the Abe Lenstra Stadium on Sunday and Silvester van der Water realizes what interests are at stake. The wing attacker can still remember the derby between FC Twente and Heracles Almelo in 2019.
“Then the supporters come to you weeks in advance: ‘You can lose everything, but not from Twente’. We came at 1-3 and when I cheered I saw a beer flying towards me,” he recalls on the website of the Leeuwarder Courant.
“A delicious sip. It turned out later that a buddy of mine had thrown that beer, a real Twente supporter,” continues Van der Water. “It’s a very intense derby. If you win it, you’ll be admired for a week,” realizes the creative left-footed, who enjoys playing football in the lion’s den. “Put up the supporters a bit, act annoying”, he laughs.
