If it is up to Veronika Ricksen (33), the widow of Fernando Ricksen (43), who passed away last year, the footballer gets a second funeral in the Netherlands. She said that in an interview with ‘The Scottish Sun’.

“There will be a full ceremony, a sort of second funeral”

Fernando died in 2019 from the effects of ALS. His first funeral took place in Glasgow, where he played soccer for Rangers for years. According to Veronika, it was Fernando’s wish to transfer his ashes to the Netherlands after his arrival. “There will be a full ceremony, a sort of second funeral,” she says. When this should take place is not yet known.

The urn with the axis of Fernando is transferred to Sittard, where the career of the footballer began. The urn will remain in a public column for about ten years in this city. Fans can also place scarves and flowers in this place in honor of Fernando.

After these ten years, Veronika wants to take the ashes of her deceased husband to Curaçao.
