Kum has gone

Bad news for ADO fans as Christian Kum has joined sc Heerenveen.

The ADO defender was one of the best players last season and it is a big loss to the club. He played 144 times for ADO Den Haag and was a great leader.

We all wish him the very best at his new club after serving our club so very well.
