Luc Castaignos knows a thing or two about the burden of expectation in football. The all time record goal scorer for the Netherlands Under 17 team made his Eredividsie debut at just 16. Within 18 months, and having scored 15 first choice goals for Feyenoord, the tall elegant striker had drawn comparisons with Thierry Henry and was swiftly purchased by Milanese giants Internazionale.
Wary of repeating the international misadventures of his teens, the player has publically conceded he is not ready for the Champion's League's elite sides: “At the end of this season I will have to choose, partly because it makes FC Twente healthier. I want to go abroad, preferably to a nice top performer in England or Germany, so I can get used to the league. I have enough self-knowledge to know that I’m not ready for the real top.”
