Gervane Kastaneer leaves for FC Kaiserslautern

Gervane Kastaneer is going to pursue his career at German side FC Kaiserslautern in the Bundesliga 2. The 21-year-old attacker signs a contract for three seasons in Germany. Kastaneer had a declining commitment in The Hague.

In 2013 Kastaneer left FC Dordrecht and came to ADO Den Haag. In his first season at the club he did not manage to break into the first team. On February 2, 2015, Kastaneer debuted in the first team during the home match against FC Twente. During the winter break of the 2015/2016 season, the Rotterdammer was loaned out to FC Eindhoven for six months.

Last season Kastaneer returned strongly at ADO. He scored twice against Vitesse and once against Excelsior. Partly due to his goals ADO had a great start to the season. Then against PEC Zwolle, the attacker suffered an eye injury, forcing him to miss the rest of the season.

Donny Gorter opts to stay at ADO

Donny Gorter remains a player of ADO Den Haag. The midfielder has entered into a three-year contract at the club.

Gorter came to ADO  during the winter break and was soon involved in the first team squad. After injuring his knee, he lost his place. The 29 year old player still opted to stay at ADO Den Haag.

“I have said that this club was on my wish list, and not only because my father was born and raised in The Hague. That feeling at ADO is still great, so I’m happy to stay here. In the end, I’ve been around. And now I get to work quickly. I hope to be of great importance to the club in the coming seasons.”

Gorter previously appeared in the Netherlands for NAC Breda and AZ Alkmaar and played in Denmark at Viborg and Aalborg.

Lex Immers returns to ADO

Today, once again, dreams have come true for ADO Den Haag. The return of midfielder Lex Immers to The Hague, the player himself also wanted to rejoin the yellow-green team. It has all now come true for both parties.He has signs a contract for two seasons and will wear the number 10 shirt.

In 2007 Immers debuted in professional football as a player of ADO. That happened against RKC Waalwijk. He soon became of permanent value and got the club promotion to the Eredivisie. In the 2010/2011 season, the now 31-year-old footballer rose to a new level. The Hagenaar played all the matches and scored ten goals in the Eredivisie when the club reached European football after the amazing  playoffs against FC Groningen.

In 2012 Immers left for Feyenoord, where he eventually played three and a half seasons. His career then took him to Cardiff City and Club Brugge., from were he released from his contract last month. Now Lex is back home.

Manager of Football Affairs Jeffrey van As: “With Lex we have an excellent football player. Of course, Lex also fits perfectly with this club. He has the mentality that belongs to The Hague, passion, fight and The Hague bluff. Supporters appreciate that very much. Lex has gained a lot of experience over the past few years, which will definitely be useful to us. Another advantage is that Lex knows the club well and, of course, it’s a great sign for ADO Den Haag. We look forward to two good years.”

Lex said about returning: “It has always been a dream to return to ADO Den Haag, it was sooner than expected, but I’m very happy about it. When ADO Den Haag wanted me, I hope that my arrival will boost the whole club, and also to be among the new players. Like my previous period, I want to experience many great moments again.”

Mike Havenaar leaves ADO Den Haag

Mike Havenaar will pursue his career at the Japanese Vissel Kobe. The Japanese striker would love to return to his native country, where he also has a daughter. Havenaar did have a contract at ADO for another season.

Havenaar left HJK Helsinki in the summer of 2015. At ADO, Havenaar immediately became a major pawn in the attack. In his first season he found the net sixteen times. Last season, Havenaar was ruled out for a long period due to a serious viral infection, but he returned strongly, eventually finishing with nine goals.

The striker has had many ups and a few down during his two years at ADO. Sadly he will be remembered more for one miss than all the goals he scored.

The club and the fans thank Mike for two great seasons and wish him a lot of luck at Vissel Kobe!

Henrik-Jan Rinner new financial director ADO Den Haag

Henrik-Jan Rinner is the new Financial Director of ADO Den Haag. The 48-year-old Advocate immediately commits himself to the Hague club as successor to Peter Ooijendijk, who held the position on an interim basis for over a year.

Rinner is from Stage Entertainment, where he worked for several years in various executive positions of the company’s operating companies. For more than 10 years, Rinner has played a prominent role in the development of Holiday On Ice, initially in the position of CFO and from 2013 as CEO. Rinner, in charge of four new Holiday On Ice productions, was also the inspiring force behind Ice Age on Ice. Following the acquisition of Holiday On Ice by the new owner CTS Eventim in the summer of 2016, he has now decided to face a new professional challenge. He has found that challenge at ADO, where he will join up with Director General Mattijs Manders.

Rinner is new in professional football, but well known in the Hague for his work in amateur football. Since early 2017 he is treasurer of VV Wilhelmus in Voorburg. Rinner sought and found a challenge at ADO. “ADO Den Haag is a beautiful historical club and the role of Financial Director at a BVO is a great sequel to my live entertainment experiences.”
