RVP, who has just been appointed captain of Holland, revealed he has passed up the chance to earn millions from product endorsements.
The ex-Arsenal ace said: “A great deal of offers come my way but I am the type of person who limits what I do.
“I don’t do many things like this. When I do something it is only because I support it entirely.
“I look to see whether it is something that sends a good message to young people.
“I ignore a great deal of them as I don’t want to spend much time on them. The sporting aspect of my career comes first.”
