Dessers won the golden boot after he scored 10 goals from 12 appearances in the competition one ahead of Roma’s Tammy Abraham.

Nu.nl reports that Dessers is not excited about the achievement citing the disappoinment of the loss to Roma, even though he stated he might cherish the golden boot over time.

“The pride will come because we played a great poster with the team:a European final against AS Roma,” Dessers said.

“That realisation will come during or after the holidays but at the moment the disappoinment dominates.”

Dessers also spoke about his contractual situation at Feyenoord with rumours of his stay intensifying after his heroics in the Conference League.

Technical Director Frank Arnesen claimed after the final with Roma that Feyenoord are ready to pay the 4 million Euros required for Dessers’ acquisition to parent club Genk but couldn’t ascertain whether a deal was in the offing.

“That’s exactly what he said,” Dessers remarked.

“We will talk further in the coming days but it will be by phone.

“I will travel straight to the United States to play with Nigeria.”

Dessers scored 21 goals and recorded six assists after 47 games in all competitions for Feyenoord this season.

Feyenoord ended the Eredivisie season in the third position with 71 points after 34 matches .
