The Ultimate Transfer Dilemma Feyenoord’s Decision to Let Go of Third Choice Player for Free to Israel

Feyenoord bids farewell to third-choice goalkeeper with free transfer to Israel

Dutch football club, Feyenoord, has announced that their third-choice goalkeeper, Justin Bijlow, will be leaving on a free transfer to Israeli club, Beitar Jerusalem. The 24-year-old has struggled to break into Feyenoord’s first team and has made only six appearances since joining the club’s youth academy in 2013.

Bijlow previously spent a season on loan at Dutch club, FC Dordrecht, where he made 31 appearances as their first-choice goalkeeper. However, he was unable to replicate this success at Feyenoord, where he has spent most of his time on the bench.

Feyenoord has thanked Bijlow for his contributions to the club and wished him luck in his new adventure with Beitar Jerusalem. The Israeli side has gained a young, promising goalkeeper with the potential to develop into a top talent.

Is this the right move for Bijlow?

While Feyenoord’s decision to let Bijlow go on a free transfer may raise eyebrows, it could be a smart move for the player. With limited playing time at the Dutch club, a move to Beitar Jerusalem could provide Bijlow with the opportunity to establish himself as a first-team regular and gain valuable experience in a new league.

However, playing in Israel is not without its challenges. The country divides opinions due to ongoing political and security issues, and Bijlow will need to be prepared for a different cultural environment.

What do you think of Feyenoord’s decision to let Bijlow leave for free? Will he thrive in Israel or would he have been better off staying put? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
