Football hooligan executed in front of daughter



An infamous football hooligan has been shot dead in front of his daughter minutes after he picked her up from primary school.

Martin van de Pol, 56 — who goes by the alias Polletje — was shot dead in Amsterdam in the Netherlands while he was picking up his seven-year-old child in what is believed to be a gangland hit.

As Pol and his daughter left the school, the Ajax football club fan was shot multiple times and died at the scene, The Sun reports.

Police spokesperson Marijke Stor told the Dutch TV channel Opsporing Verzocht: “This was a particularly brutal assassination.

“Parents and children at the school are extremely scared, shocked and upset.”

According to the official police report, the suspect is a light-brown-skinned male aged between 20 to 25 wearing dark clothes.

The shooter fled the scene directly after the shooting.

Pol routinely picked up his daughter at the same time during the week and police believe the shooter used this information to plan the attack.

Police report that the killer waited for Pol by the school the day before the shooting on March 3rd, but that day Pol broke with his routine and did not pick up his daughter which forced the killer to delay the attack by a day.

Pol was handed a 15-year prison sentence for the shooting of four men in a brothel in 2000.

The killings inside the Club Esther sex club, reportedly included a member of the Hell’s Angels and other Hell’s Angels associates.

Arguing self-defence, Pol was able to reduce his charge from murder to manslaughter and was sentenced to serve 15 years in prison.

After leaving prison Pol continued his life as an influential figure within the Ajax football club firm known as “F-side” where he gained popularity after being kicked in the face by a police horse, irreparably damaging his face.

A former member tweeted: “Today we received the news that Martin van de Pol was shot dead in Amsterdam-Zuid Oost.

Polletje was a very influential member within the hardcore side of Ajax supporters and had been part of the F-side since the 1980s.”

The F-side was founded in 1976 and has been associated by authorities with a wide range of criminal activity including drug trafficking, rioting, arson and even murder.

The shooter remains on the run and the investigation continues.

Transfer news, rumours, Manchester United, Jadon Sancho, Erling Haaland, Donny van de Beek, Jose Mourinho



Former Tottenham coach Jose Mourinho could offer an escape route for Manchester United outcast Donny van de Beek, per reports.

Mourinho agreed a three-year contract with Roma on Wednesday and will replace their current boss Paulo Fonseca at the end of this season.

The 58-year-old was ranked among the world’s top managers after winning the Champions League at Porto and Inter Milan, while enjoying domestic glory with Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Mourinho hopes a return to Italy can revive his career in the same way he rejuvenated Inter Milan from 2008 to 2010.

It is not just his career though that could be reinvigorated by the move, with reports suggesting Mourinho is looking to offer van de Beek a lifeline.

Van de Beek has struggled for game time in his first season in England after making the switch from Ajax to Manchester United for £40 million ($A71m).

Calciomercato reports Mourinho will look to convince Van de Beek to make the move with his future at United unclear, stuck behind other first-team regulars.

The Sun though reports that United are adamant Van de Beek will stay put and will push back against approaches from rivals, instead insisting his time will come.


Speaking of Manchester United, the Red Devils are reportedly preparing an £80 million ($A143m) bid for Jadon Sancho.

It comes after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was understood to have made the Borussia Dortmund star his top target for the summer.

United were heavily linked to Sancho last summer but could not strike a deal after failing to meet Dortmund’s £100m valuation.

The Daily Star though reports that United are “eyeing a big-money swoop” for Sancho as a bid for Erling Haaland would just cost too much.

Sancho told ESPN on Saturday he was not sure what his future looked like amid the interest.

“I don’t know about my future,” he said after a 3-2 loss to RB Leipzig.

“I am very happy here in Dortmund at the moment. I love the club, the fans and the team.

“They gave me my first professional start. The fans motivate and push me to the limit.”

United are reported to be in the race for Haaland alongside Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and Chelsea, per Sky Sports.

Dortmund though will not sell him for less than £150m ($A267m) even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.

A source toldSky Sportsthere will be a war if Dortmund finish outside the Champions League places.


Elsewhere, speculation over Neymar’s future is over after he signed a contract extension that will see him stay at Paris Saint-Germain until the end of the 2024-2025 season.

The Brazil attacker said he had “grown as a person, as a human being” since joining the club in 2017 from Barcelona for 222 million euros ($270 million) in what remains the most expensive transfer in history.

“I’m really pleased to continue my adventure at Paris Saint-Germain,” the 29-year-old said in a club statement after extending his contract until June 30, 2025.

“I’m very happy in Paris, and proud to be part of this squad, to work with these players, a great coach and to be part of the history of this club.

“I have grown as a person here, as a human being and as a player, too. So I am very happy to extend my contract and I hope to win many more trophies here.”

Neymar has claimed three Ligue 1 titles and two French Cups with PSG, but the major honour that he was bought by the Qatari-owned club to win, the Champions League, continues to prove elusive.

He helped PSG to reach last season’s final where they were beaten by Bayern Munich but the club’s chances of reaching the final again were ended by Manchester City on Tuesday — and Neymar was ineffectual in the 2-0 semi-final second-leg defeat in England.
