After being told to packs his bags and don't come back to Finch Farm again after a couple of breaches of discipline, Royston Drenthe has been spending his time away from Everton giving interviews to the media and has said he now wants to go and play for his hometown club Feyenoord.
Not only that but he has told of his run in with Lionel Messi. Drenthe played against Barcelona for his parent Real Madrid and while on loan at Hercules. A spat which Drenthe said Messi welcomed him with 'hola negro.'
On Messi Drenthe said: 'When Hercules (the team Drenthe spent a year on loan with last season) played Barcelona, during the game I had a small altercation with him. He gave me a hand in the match and again said a few times, "hola negro".
Drenthe said: "I want to do what I like and that's play football. In addition Rotterdam is my city. Feyenoord have not called me yet, but of course I would not mind if they did. Maybe I'll call them myself."
