Inside 433: Demy de Zeeuw's story

Did you know that Demy de Zeeuw, a former pro who played for the likes of Ajax, Spartak Moscow, Anderlecht and the Dutch national team, is one of 433's owners? Back in the day, De Zeeuw's best position was in midfield, often deployed as a defensive midfielder for both club and country.However, his life changed forever when he received a powerful kick to the head while representing his country, The Netherlands, in their World Cup semi-final clash against Uruguay in 2010. As soon as it happened, it quickly became clear that Demy was seriously injured. Demy never fully recovered, and in the years that followed this horrible incident, he decided to start his own businesses, including clothing brand BALR. and 433, now the largest football community on social media. For this special podcast episode, we sat down with Demy de Zeeuw in one of the company’s offices to talk about his story, how he dealt with a serious head injury as a professional footballer, and his role in building 433. This is Inside 433 with Demy de Zeeuw.- See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

How Axel Witsel invests his money

Something interesting is happening in the world of football. More and more football players are starting up businesses during their football careers. They become investors or entrepreneurs, in real estate for example, or the tech industry.This was frowned upon, not so long ago. Critics would say football players should just be focussed on their development as a player, that they would become distracted if they focussed on stuff outside football. But times have changed. A lot of football players now realise that they should invest the money they earn in different ways, to make sure they stay wealthy long after their careers as football players have ended.A good example of this is Axel Witsel, the Belgian international and former player of clubs like Benfica and Zenit Saint Petersburg. He’s currently under contract at Borussia Dortmund. Axel Witsel started to invest the money he earned as a footballer in different ways when he was still very young in his career. He mainly focuses on real estate. But he also had some business ventures in aviation, fashion and wine, for example.We had the opportunity to meet Axel Witsel in Dortmund, to talk about his business ventures.- See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Behind Burak Yilmaz’ transfer to Sittard

The summer transfer window can be truly magical at times. Every now and then, there’s always a signing that catches you completely off guard. Burak Yilmaz is a football icon in Turkey. The 36 year old striker, nicknamed The King, has played for the four biggest Turkish clubs: Galatasaray, Trabzonspor, Besiktas and Fenerbahce. He has also proudly captained the Turkish national team for years. In the 2020-21 season, he was seen as a key figure that helped Lille regain the French league title for the first time in 10 years, scoring 16 goals and assisting several more that season.  His heroics helped his side fend off star-studded giants in the capital, Paris Saint Germain, as they finished just a point ahead of them.After leaving Lille as a free agent at the end of last season, Burak Yilmaz had offers from clubs all over the globe. He could have signed lucrative deals at interested clubs in England, Greece and France, for example. But Burak Yilmaz surprised the world of football by signing a contract at Fortuna Sittard, a relatively small club from the Netherlands. In fact, Fortuna Sittard just about escaped relegation from the Dutch Eredivisie last season. Even the club's own supporters found it hard to believe that they signed a player of Burak Yilmaz’ caliber. How did this small club manage to sign one of the most respected number 9’s in football? We spoke with several Turkish and Dutch football experts, and Fortuna Sittard’s president, to give you the inside story.- See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
