Director of sport Andreas Bornemann: "Henk approached us with a request to return to SC Heerenveen. We greatly regret his decision but respect his express wish to move back home with his family, of course. We'd like to wish him all the very best for his future career and thank him for his efforts on behalf of the club."
Head coach Timo Schultz: "In Henk we lose not only a good player but also a great guy. I wish him all the best personally and professionally back home."
Henk Veerman: "It's the best decision for me and my family. I'm really proud to have played for this fantastic club and these brilliant fans. I'll always remember the games at the Millerntor and especially the one at HSV, when I gave us the lead in a 2-0 away win."
