Heerenveen coach Streppel snaps over Odegaard penalty clause claim

Heerenveen coach Jürgen Streppel insists any penalty clause won't influence the selection of Martin Odegaard.

The Real Madrid midfielder has struggled to impress at Heerenveen since his January arrival.

El Confidencial says Heerenveen must pay €40,000 every time Odegaard doesn't play.

However, Streppel snapped: "It's embarrassing for the club and for him. You doubt my integrity?

"Do you think that I will let this dictate my options? What influenced me? He can do better, he must be more decisive in attack and defence."
