Because he too is a black (former) Twente left winger? I highly rate John. He's two-footed, which is a rarity in wingers, he can score and has a great cross, and he's physically strong. We're proud of him, he's been in the Twente academy since he was 10 years old and we hope he does well. All of that said he's leaving far too young. He's had just one season of first team football in the Dutch league (which is why I think 9 million is A LOT of money) and it's not like he can't improve further at home. I can only hope Benfica gives him a fair chance.
