The Gegenpressing Podcast | Dessers about promotion with NAC: ‘My father gets emotional when he talks about it’ | NAC

The gasping for breath of nineteen thousand throats at Giovanni Korte’s capture, the sound explosion at the first touch of the leather with the ropes and the subsequent total discharge that made the Rat Verlegh Stadium vibrate for minutes. The opening goal of Dessers in the first leg of the final diptych with NEC blew a rare hurricane full of euphoria within a supporter group that had lived for years in the suppression of fatalism.

That almost moving split-second of silence before he lashed out is a moment that is still clear to mind. A swirling crowd, after a number of disastrous past attempts in search of a successful landing on the occupied ground of success, hailed the hit as a total liberation. The goalscorer himself collapsed on his knees, while the majority of his teammates celebrated on the other corner of the field.

As a passionate collective, the Rat Verlegh Stadium formed a front in the form of a wall of sound. That frenzied afternoon a new standard was set in their supporters’ lives for many people from Breda. A few days later, Dessers became an icon of the 21st century NAC, pulling the club out of the swamp of the first division. A folk festival is what follows.
