Twenty years ago he conquered the UEFA Cup as president

— Jorien van den Herik is present as former chairman in Tirana to support Feyenoord during the European final against AS Roma. Twenty years after he won the UEFA Cup with coach Bert van Marwijk, he hopes that the Rotterdam team can repeat that stunt on the European stage.

From 1984 to 2006 he was decisive as a director in De Kuip. Somewhere along the way, he already visited Tirana (1991) during a European trip from Feyenoord. The country experienced a lot of poverty about thirty years ago and Jorien van den Herik (78 years old now) can still remember that after the double encounter with Partizan Tirana, his club sent a container full of (Feyenoord) clothing to Albania.
