Van Gerwen dislikes comments Durrant after Premier League win: 'It just looks very fake'
"That he played fantastic is of course nonsense", Van Gerwen said on RTL 7. "His semi-final against Anderson was not good and also the final was not great. He threw a few good finishes, but didn't even average 92. When you look to the full Premier League season, he deserved to win this, but now it's been very mediocre. The feeling of the victory probably dominates and of course he has done a great job since joining the PDC.''
''You know what it is. He wants to be appreciated too much'', the world number one continued. ''Such interviews doesn't help, it just looks very fake. He also pays too much attention to his words, how he thinks and talks. Personally, I am more in favor of just saying your thought, but he apparently thinks differently."
