women, parties… The confidences of a former flop

In an interview given to The Gazzetta dello SportRoyston Drenthe admitted that he had missed out on his career as a professional footballer.

Arrived at Real Madrid in 2007 against a check for 14 million with the status of future crack, the Dutchman never managed to win in the Spanish capital. His lapses in behavior clearly played tricks on him. “I was 20 and at the height of my career. I was not ready to be a professional. I thought I was God, I loved women and partying too much, but you can’t combine that with football. I didn’t immediately see the need to change my lifestyle. Now I know that I didn’t do the right thing, that I made mistakes”, recognized the side, then passed through a dozen different clubs. Drenthe has recently been playing for Racing Merida, a Spanish 6th division club.
