Willem van Hanegem
Translates as The Curve a name that speaks to the imagination of an exceptionally gifted football player. Indeed he was. Willem van Hanegem is also legendary for playing to the bone and his beautiful no nonsense passing that always found its way to a teammate. Not a man of many words, but a silent force in the 70s. Nowadays you will hear him speak his mind, not being shy about sharing his opinion. Even if that means stepping on a few toes. But everyone knows he has a big heart for the game and it’s players. A good man. It was a great pleasure to hear his stories on that nice sunny day at the golf course.
