Captain Kramer the hero for a while at ADO

Mention the name of Michiel Kramer and almost everyone in the football world has an opinion about him. This often involves annoying fouls, talking to the referee or opponent and of course also the moment when he ate a croquette sandwich three years ago as a substitute for Feyenoord during the halftime of a cup match. On Saturday, Kramer was again in the spotlight, but this time positively. In injury time of the home game against PSV, as captain of ADO Den Haag, he took care of the no longer expected 2-2 with a nice bicycle kick.

“I thought he would break his back”, trainer Ruud Brood joked about the tall Kramer. The striker got the ball with his back to the goal and a bicycle kick was the most obvious. The attempt worked wonderfully.

ADO thus proved to be particularly efficient. PSV was the better team for almost the entire game and recorded 34 shot attempts, 15 of which were on goal. Shortly before Kramer’s 2-2, PSV got a few good chances to decide the game definitively.

“The bicycle kick didn’t go that smoothly, you know. I also regret it,” said Kramer, laughing. “I can feel it in my body now. It was in it, that’s the most important thing. Whether I’m going to show the goal to my kids tomorrow? I think they’ve seen it already.”

The point is important for ADO in the fight against relegation, especially after the victory of competitor RKC Waalwijk on Friday against FC Emmen (1-0). ADO is now seventeenth with 13 points. Number 16 Willem II also has 13 points. Last but not least FC Emmen is on 6 points. The bottom two clubs are relegated directly at the end.

Besides Kramer, the Austrian goalkeeper Martin Fraisl was also important for ADO with the necessary good saves. “It doesn’t really matter who was in the lead,” says 32-year-old Kramer. “We’re all doing it together. We have to stay in the premier league with ADO Den Haag, that’s what it’s all about.”
