Andres Iniesta Boos Slammed, Guus Hiddink Tells Netherlands Fans to Feel Ashamed

Netherlands boss Guus Hiddink has slammed the Dutch fans who booed Spain’s Andres Iniesta as he made a 76th-minute substitute appearance at the Amsterdam Arena on Tuesday.

The Netherlands beat Spain 2-0 in Tuesday’s friendly, but the victory was marred by the reaction to the Barcelona midfielder’s introduction late in the game.

The hostility toward the 30-year-old was a reaction to Iniesta‘s extra-time winning goal in the 2010 World Cup final, when Spain beat the Netherlands 1-0 in Johannesburg.

Hiddink, however, branded the booing “shameless,” condemning the reaction of the fans in no uncertain terms, per ESPN FC

Such a player, such a world-class player. The fact that he was booed should make the crowd feel deeply ashamed. He’s a fantastic player and a great person. That was really inappropriate, and shameless.

Iniesta is widely regarded as a class act both on and off the field, and few will have been on board with the reaction he received in Amsterdam.

Spain boss Vicente del Bosque admitted he had never experienced such hostilities in his time in charge of the national team, per ESPN FC: “I have been on the Spain bench for 98 internationals, but I’ve never experienced anything like that before.”

It was not a good night for Spain overall as they continue their period of transition following a miserable World Cup campaign in Brazil in 2014 that signalled the end of a spell of unprecedented glory.

Goals inside the first 16 minutes from Stefan de Vrij and Davy Klaassen proved the difference for the Dutch as they cruised to victory.

The result will ease some of the pressure on Hiddink, who has had a torrid time since taking over from Louis van Gaal after the World Cup—losing four of eight matches—with Football Oranje marking the victory as a potential turning point:

Del Bosque, on the other hand, still has much work to do to return Spain to the top of world football. La Roja recently dropped out of the top 10 in FIFA’s world rankings for the first time since 2007, per The Independent‘s James Orr.

Both sides now have a long break until their next fixtures in June, when Spain have a Euro 2016 qualifier against Belarus, and the Dutch face the USA in a friendly. 

easyJet and Kanye West Announce U.S. Partnership, Re-Brand as “yeezyJet”

With confirmation that Kanye West and Damon Dash have purchased Karmaloop, it seems West has moved on to another venture with less of a fashion angle, but every bit influenced by his creative spirit and his desire to be a CEO. easyJet has seen Kanye West come on board in a yet-to-be-determined position. While easyJet has operated solely on European soil to this point, the newly-named “yeezyJet” partnership will see the airline entering the United States marketplace.

“The notion of ‘getting fly’ is something I stayed awake at night thinking about,” West said in the official press release. “With DONDA, it happened on a more metaphysical, psychological level. With yeezyJet, I’ve manifested myself. I’m taking people places they’ve never been before. There are 300 million people within a one-hour drive of an yeezyJet airport. I sell out one concert, that’s only 100,000 people. I want to reach the most people possible. I want to literally show them the way.”

As to what to expect aboard the maiden voyage which takes place at a yet-to-be-determined American hub on April 22, details include premium, Italian textile clad seats, Krug Clos d’Ambonnay 1998 beverage service, and an in-flight media experience: “Getting Out Our Dreams,” which is an archived experience of West’s favorite songs, movies, TV shows and artists.

Additionally, those lucky enough to book a reservation on the inaugural flight will be treated to a concert on the tarmac around the plane by the likes of Pusha T, Common, John Legend, and newly-signed G.O.O.D. music artist, Holt. Kanye West said, “This is Willy Wonka, except I’m giving out gold chains instead of golden tickets.”
