De Boer questions Locadia swapping PSV for Brighton: But I understand...

Dutch hero Ronald de Boer has questioned Jurgen Locadia's move to Brighton.

The former PSV Eindhoven striker moved to the Seagulls last week for a club record fee.

But De Boer is unimpressed, telling FOX Sports: "I did not expect him to leave. PSV is competing for the championship. They are in good shape, so in principle you are going to play in the Champions League. With Brighton you go to the bottom of football.

"(But) I also know that the money is attractive.

"And it is the most attractive competition in the world. If you do a reasonable season there, then you are right in the eyes of other scouts in England.

"Of course you also hear that PSV was in the red numbers. Now they write black numbers again. So I understand."
