Feyenoord sends Antonucci back to FC Volendam

Francesco Antonucci returns to FC Volendam. The leader of the Kitchen Champion Division rents the Belgian midfielder from Feyenoord for the rest of the season. The 22-year-old Antonucci barely got to play in Rotterdam.

Feyenoord signed Antonucci for four years in the summer of 2020. The Belgian with Italian roots continued to play on a rental basis for Volendam last season, the club where he broke through as a mercenary from AS Monaco with eleven league goals in his first season. Last season, Antonucci scored four goals in 31 matches in the Kitchen Champion Division.

The midfielder joined Feyenoord in the summer and was given the opportunity of the new trainer Arne Slot in the preparation. He made his debut as a substitute in the first preliminary round match in the Conference League, but since then Antonucci has not played for the main squad in Rotterdam. He mainly played in Feyenoord Under 21.

Feyenoord is now letting him return to Volendam, to get more playing time there. “That is exactly where ‘Franco’ benefits the most at the moment,” says technical director Frank Arnesen. The rental period is automatically extended by one year if Volendam is promoted to the Eredivisie. The team of trainer Wim Jonk is at the top of the Kitchen Champion Division.
