Former Netherlands international player Pierre van Hooijdonk has revealed that the player he fears most in the Turkish national team is Colin Kazim Richards.

Turkey take on the Netherlands in a Euro 2016 qualification group stage game on 28 March.

“If Kazim Richards plays I will be worried about Veltman in defence, he will be in for a tough time, he will struggle to deal with him physically,” Hooijdonk was quoted as saying by Sporx.
