In 2006, during a game between his club Ajax and Cambuur Leeuwarden, he scored an unintended goal after Cambuur stopped the game for an injured teammate of his to receive treatment. During the stoppage, he attempted passing the ball to Cambuur's goalkeeper as a gesture of fair play but ended up scoring an accidental goal. Since this was an accident, Ajax showed exceptional sportsmanship by allowing Cambuur score a goal as compensation.
