Zuiverloon goes his own way

Published Add your comment

Defender Gianni Zuiverloon admitted he turned to advice from Liverpool winger Ryan Babel before joining West Brom on a three-year contract.

Zuiverloon sought his guidance from Babel before agreeing to move to the Hawthorns in a £3.2million deal from Heerenveen.

"Before I signed for Albion, I spoke to Ryan and he said this was a big step for me - but I will be all right," said Zuiverloon, who has been close friends with Babel since helping Holland to retain the European Under-21 Championships on home soil last summer.
