Leroy Fer Life

Leroy Johan Fer (born 5 January 1990) is a Dutch professional footballer who plays for Feyenoord and the Dutch national football team. Fer has many names.

Feyenoord youth coach Jean-Paul van Gastel was nicknamed "De Uitsmijter" ("The Bouncer") in his youth, owing to his good physical appearance.

"Lerra" and "Ferovic" are two other nicknames.

Cor Pot, the head coach of the Netherlands under 21 national team, compared Fer to Patrick Vieira.

Both players have a lot in common, both on and off the track, according to Pot.

Early life

Fer was born and raised in Zoetermeer, South Holland. He is the first child of parents from Curaçao. His paternal grandfather, who was of Surinamese descent, was of Surinamese descent. Fer's maternal grandfather was a footballer in Curaçao, while his father, Lesley Fero, was a baseball player. Fer has one younger brother, Leegreg, who competed for the Feyenoord under-17 team, a sister, and his cousin Patrick van Aanholt, who was a footballer for Galatasaray.

Personal life

Fer was raised Catholic. "We went to church every day in Zoetermeer." My father gave me my football abilities. "I thank Him every day" He has a tattoo of the Christian cross on his right lower arm, as well as the words "In God I trust." Fer is a huge fan of rap music outside of football.

Fer married Xenia Schipaanboord, a long-term girlfriend, in Norwich, on July 27th, 2014. Ace is their son. However, they were divorced in 2018 after four years of marriage. He began a new life with Angela, where she gave birth to a baby girl, Castle Fleurella.

Fer bought a horse for 28,000 euros for his then-girlfriend Xenia in December 2012, only to discover she couldn't keep it because she lived in a block of flats at the time. Fer wrote about the occasion: "A friend welcomed me along to an auction for really good horses – racehorses – and some of them went for €500,000. It was a new one for me. This horse was not the best, but it was nice, they said. I was playing around on my phone, and I heard the price go up after. I was still on my phone, and I thought, 'Is this you, sir?' And people yelled, 'Yes, it's you,' The guy upstairs's old to the guy.' They told me, 'Leroy Fermez bought the horse.' They ordered me to stand up.' I was sweating. I didn't want the horse because I was living in an apartment. I wasn't with you when she said, 'Babe, I bought you a horse.' I had to repeat it. She's into horses, so I joked with her before that I was going to buy her one. However, she didn't believe it when I called. Fortunately, someone came over to me about ten minutes later and said, 'Do you really want the horse?' I thought I was just fooling around.' So I received a little money. But for ten minutes I was thinking: 'Shit, I've got a horse.'

Where shall I leave it?’"

Ferber has been a racist throughout his football career. Three people were banned from racially insulting Fer on social media in March 2015.


Leroy Fer Career

Club career

Fer started his youth at the local Zoetermeer club DWO. His team won friendly matches against youth teams from professional clubs, like Sparta Rotterdam and Feyenoord, in his first full season. However, he was in DWO until age nine. Fer Ferry accepted the invitation to join the Feyenoord's youth academy alongside a youth friend Kaj Ramsteijn. He followed his education and then joined Jong Feyenoord, becoming a director of the academy.

Fer had his breakthrough in Feyenoord's first team in 2007–08 and was first called up to the first squad ahead of the match against FC Groningen on November 25, 2007. In the 84th minute of Bert van Marwijk and Fer's ownership, he made his official debut for the club under new ownership. Nuri ahin was fired in the 84th minute in the Egym riots against Heracles Almelo on December 2nd 2007. Fer wrote his first professional deal with Feyenoord on December 6, 2007, retaining him at De Kuip until summer 2012. "Leroy is a footballer with a lot of promise, but you have to be cautious with a child like that," manager Van Marwijk said of him. He is still a freshman A-junior, and I don't want to destroy him right away. I think he could do it, but it has yet to become apparent in practice. Leroy gives off a positive, calm appearance and adapts quickly. He doesn't say much, but he isn't introverted either. Leroy is well integrated into the team, but good football players will always be involved." In his first season, he was active in 13 Eredivsie games, mainly as a substitute. Fer made his first appearance in the Eivisie away match against rivals, Ajax, losing 3–0 on February 3, 2008. Fer began on the right back in his debut in four matches in a row. Feyenoord defeated 3–1. He scored his first Economy goal in the away match against NAC Breda on March 30, 2008. Fer was drafted in the final of the KNVB Cup in the 71st minute, the club were champions after defeating Roda JC 2–0, qualifying for the UEFA Cup next season. However, Feyenoord was the subject of an investigation by the KNV and the club themselves into allegations of his participation while playing for Jong Feyenoord. An inquiry was launched, and Jong Feyenoord was deducted points, resulting in Jong Sparta Rotterdam winning the tournament.

Fer slowly became a first team regular in the 2008–09 season. Gertjan Verbeek, the head coach of Feyenoord, often placed the player in a central attacking midfielder role behind striker Roy Makaay. Fer made his European debut on September 18th as he was named in the starting lineup for the UEFA Cup home match against Kalmar FF. Feyenoord lost the game 0–1, but Fer scored the winning goal in the 1–2 victory, securing a spot in the group stage after Emin Nouri was later credited as own goal. In a 2–1 loss to Sparta Rotterdam three weeks later, he scored his first official goal for the club, which was his first official goal for the team. In a 4–0 win over Roda JC, the forward was followed by scoring his second goal of the season. Fer scored on his return to action against ADO Den Haag on November 23, 2008, after missing only one match due to sickness. In a 3–1 victory over NAC Breda a month later, he scored a brace against NAC Breda. Fert's sixth goal of the season wasn't until March 15, 2009, when he defeated PSV Eindhoven 1–0. Fer was involved in both legs of the play-offs round against NAC Breda, although Feyenoord lost 7–2 on aggaragate. Despite being injured during the 2008–09 season, he made forty-one appearances and scoring six times in all competitions. Several top clubs in Europe showed an interest in the Feyenoord talent, including Juventus, during the season, but Feyenoord denied any collaboration.

Fer changed number shirt from twenty-eight to fourteen ahead of the 2009–10 season. In a 2–0 victory over NEC Nijmegen in the first game of the season, he scored his first goal of the season. Ferguez lost his fame as a natural performer and rose to be a key figure in the 2009–10 season. Fer was moved from right back to striker in previous seasons, and most importantly, he was now placed in the defensive midfielder role by new Feyenoord coach Mario Been. In a 5–0 victory over Harkemase Boys in the second round of the KNVB Beker on September 24, 2009, his next goal was scored on September 24, 2009, in the KNVB Cup away. In a 2–0 victory over NAC Breda, scoring was followed by scoring in the next round. Feyenoord's new technical director, Leo Beenhakker, chastised the club's first team, but also praised Fer for his contributions to the team. Fer was even "unmissable" for the squad in Feyenoord television three days later, while Dutch national team head coach Bert van Marwijk admitted to closely monitoring Fer's progress and was getting excited about him for a potential call-up. He then played in both legs of the KNVB Cup Final against Ajax's Ajax, defeating the team 6–1 on aggregate. Fer went on to make thirty-eight appearances and scoring three times in all competitions despite missing three games due to suspension in the 2009-2010 season.

Fer was linked with a transfer away from Feyenoord as a Premier League team Everton and FC Twente were keen to sign him, but the club did not sign him. Fer's role for Feyenoord was shown by being named vice captain of the squad for the 2010–2011 season. "I have already played a number of matches," the captain announced upon his appointment. You have to look deeper, and you are no longer a natural performer. I'm the second captain, which is why the trainer has chosen me as my second captain. I don't feel it as pressure, but it is optimistic and gives a positive mood. After succeeding Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Fer was also given a number eight shirt. In a 3–1 victory over FC Utrecht in the season's opener, he scored his first goal of the season. Fer scored his second goal of the season in a 1–0 victory over Gent in the first leg of the UEFA Europa League's play-off round. In a 4–0 victory over Vitesse on 29 August 2010, he was able to help Feyenoord recover from defeat by scoring his third goal of the season and setting up one of the team's goals. Fer continued to develop himself in the first team, starting in the central midfield position, although at times he admitted not doing well. As the club lost 2–1 against rivals, Ajax on 19 September 2010, Vlaar captained his first match of the season after Ron Vlaar sustained an injury and was suspended at halftime. He had his penalty saved at extra time in a follow-up match against Roda JC in the third round of the KNVB Cup, losing 4–3 on penalties after a 1–1 draw during the 120 minutes. However, in a match against PSV Eindhoven on October 24, 2010, Vlaar sustained a knee injury and was forced to leave the team as the club went on to lose 10–0. He was originally out for weeks but he was eventually sidelined for the next four months. Fer returned to training in January in a 1–1 draw against Vitesse on January 6, 2011. He gradually started to keep his place in the first team for the remainder of the 2010–2011 season, despite his playing time coming from the bench. Fert's fourth goal of the season was not until April 10, 2011 when he scored his fourth goal of the season as well as setting up the game's fourth goal. He made twenty-six appearances and scoring four times in all competitions during the 2010–11 season.

Feyenoord was determined to keep Fertile alive in the 2010–11 season by beginning talks over a new deal. The formal talks about the employment relationship officially began on September 18th, 2010. However, the employment negotiations were put on hold in December due to the fact that it had to wait longer and that it had not been restored before that date. He wanted to keep his Feyenoord role in April 2011. Ferte was still in the transfer game during the summer transfer window, leading clubs such as Napoli, Fiorentina, Sporting CP, and FC Twente were interested in him. Fer and Georginio Wijnaldum's loyalty was retained by the club, but the club was determined to keep the name of Fer and Georginio Wijnaldum. On July 11, 2011, it was announced that he did not sign a deal with Feyenoord, causing a divide between the two groups. The incident caused his friendship with the club's supporters to be tarnished, and he even gave him an obituary in his letterbox. Fermord said of Feyenoord's supporters: "This club has a large fan base, and they are excellent supporters." There are only those who do this, and it is a shame. They can be promoters with too much emotion, but true Feyenoord followers are dazzling and will always be. Since I want to grow, it is only a sporting choice. Feyenoord's club does not change anything, according to my opinion. I still love the club, although I have been playing there for twelve years." He later expressed excitement about playing under Ronald Koeman's new reign. However, boss Koeman gave Fergu that he could either stay in Feyenoord or leave.

Fer made his 100th appearance for Feyenoord in the season's opening game against SBV Excelsior in the midst of transfer speculation. RTV Rijnmond named him Player of the Week following the match. In a 3–0 victory over Roda JC, Paul was scored for his first goal of the season. In a 2–2 draw against SC Heerenveen on August 28, 2011, he scored his second goal of the season, but he didn't play for Feyenoord eight years ago.

Fer joined Twente, a Roma Economy club, at the end of August 2011 in a contract worth €5 million. "Purely to develop myself as a footballer," he said after being kicked out of Feyenoord. After all this time, it's important that I play in a new environment. New incentives are always helpful. All in all, I've been playing for Feyenoord for ten years. And I will never forget it. My heart is bleming. I can honestly say that I had to shed some tears, but that's how football works. With the current pick and the new acquisitions, I will never forget Feyenoord, and I am sure that the club will have a fruitful season."

In a 2–1 loss to Roda JC on September 10, Fer made his debut for the club, starting the whole game. FC Twente's third goal of the game was scored in a 5–2 victory in a follow-up match against ADO Den Haag. Fertig began working at the club, but he was eventually placed on the bench due to the competition in the midfield position. Fer scored his first goal for FC Twente and set up the club's second goal of the season in a 4–2 victory over SC Genemuiden in the third round of the KNVB Cup, but it wasn't until November 26th. He scored against PSV Eindhoven, Odense Boldklub, and De Graafschap in the next three matches. Fer, on the other hand, sustained a groin injury in a match against Fulham in the UEFA Europa League on December 1st, 2011 and was dismissed at halftime; FC Twente gained 1–0 to advance to the next round, although he missed three matches as a result. Fer returned to the first team from injury on Sunday, starting as a 73rd-minute replacement against Feyenoord, a club he played against. He was mocked by supporters of the opposition team during the game. Fergus regained his first team spot, playing in the center-midfield position as Fergus began improving on his results. Fer, who scored his fifth goal of the season, scored in a 4–1 victory over FC Groningen on January 29, 2012. FC Twente defeated Vitesse 4–1. He was his sixth goal of the season. In a 6–2 victory over PSV Eindhoven on March 4, 2012, he played a key role in the club's third goal of the game and scored a goal for himself. Fer later scored three more goals in the 2011-12 season, including against De Graafsch, Ajax, and VVV-Venlo. In all competitions, he made thirty-nine appearances and scoring ten times.

Fer was linked with a move to Benfica, Portugal, but he ended up staying at FC Twente ahead of the 2012–13 season. Fero received a straight red card after a friendly match against FC Emmen on July 14, 2012, but was suspended for one match as a result. Despite this, he scored twice in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League's second round, beating Inter Turku 5–0 to advance to the next round. As FC Twente defeated 4–0 on aggregate, it was followed by scoring in both legs against Mladá Boleslav. Fer had scored five goals against NAC Breda, NEC Nijmegen, Bursaspor (twice) and VVV-Venlo between August 2012 and September 2, 2012. However, he ruptured his knee while on international service, and was delayed for four weeks. Because of his injury, the club requested that FIFA be compensated. Fergue's return from injury was not until November 18, 2012, when he returned to action as a 77th-minute replacement in a 1–1 draw against FC Utrecht. Following his return from injury, he began to recover his first team position by playing in the center midfield position. Everton of the Premier League had agreed an agreement that was reportedly worth £8.6 million to sign Fer on January 28. However, the contract fell through due to a medical emergency, and Everton wanted to arrange a payment by appearances fee. Fer then set up two goals in two matches against PEC Zwolle and Willem II, which followed the same date. This was followed by captaining the team against SC Heerenveen for the first time, and he helped the team draw 1-1. In a 3–0 victory over FC Groningen on March 17, he scored his tenth goal of the season. In a 1–1 draw against Heracles Almelo on May 5, his eleventh goal of the season was achieved. Fer is scheduled to play in four matches in the UEFA Europa League next season as FC Twente defeated FC Utrecht 3–2 in the final.

Fer was involved in a 0–0 draw against Cardiff City on October 26, 2013 when teammate Alexander Tettey was forced to leave early in the game, and Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall skillfully took the ball out of play so Tettey could get medical attention. During the chaos, Ricky van Wolfswinkel fired a quick throw-in to Fer, who rolled the ball into the net, causing the distraction. Despite the fact that the goal was not in breach of any rules, the referee disallowed the play as he "had not blown his whistle"; players do not have to wait for the whistle to be blown to get a throw-in. Fert's lack of sportsmanship was criticized by Cardiff boss Malky Mackay. On Match of the Day, he declared that the shot was 100% deliberate and that he had no expectation of such a reaction from the Cardiff players, who surrounded him and began shoving him around. Marshall also started to fear Van Wolfswinkel. Fer scored his third goal in the club's 3–1 home win over West Ham United on November 9, 2013, and the likes of Jamie Redknapp expressed his doubt that if he played as he did, he could become one of the league's top players. Fer scored again in a 2–1 loss against Newcastle United on November 23, 2013, a late header that only served as a consolation for the Canaries. During a 2–0 victory over West Bromwich Albion on December 7, he helped Gary Hooper with a through ball that cut straight across the West Brom defense and then scored his third league goal for the club in, as well as awarding him Man of the Match by Sky Sports for his efforts.

In a 2–1 victory over Newcastle United on May 16, he scored his sixth goal of the season. Fergus continued to make thirty-one appearances and scoring six times in all competitions despite the fact that the 2014-2015 season culminated in Queens Park Rangers' demise.

Following Fer's relegation, it was predicted that they would leave the club ahead of the 2015–16 season. Sunderland was keen in signing the player even before the club's website revealed that they had announced the transfer.

Fer made his move to South Wales permanent on July 5, 2016 and agreed to a three-year deal with an undisclosed fee. "I want to develop and get better," the coach said when joining the club. I joined a team that had already played six months together, so I had to fit in last season. But they made it so simple for me and I know the lads, so for me [the aim] is to get better and show the Swansea fans what I've got in the locker."

Fer was returned to Feyenoord on July 25, 2019 after completing a one-year contract with the club. Feyenoord's supporters welcomed his return, adding: "I think for some supporters, who had no idea that I had made that decision at the time, it is fine to ask for forgiveness."

That gives me a boost and gives me a lot of love for the club."
