Raymond van Barneveld has vowed to fight on in his final season of action in the Premier League.
Van Barneveld believes he can still survive and said he doesn’t want straight relegation in his final year. The five-time world champion is still looking for a first win in the Premier League this year after three defeats and two draws.
“I can still survive,” he said in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports. “I don’t want straight relegation which could be really disappointing in my last year.
“Everyone keeps telling me ‘Ray, go and enjoy it’, but how can you enjoy it when you’re not playing competitions. That’s hard for me.
“The next couple of weeks are going to be tough in the Premier League. I’ve got to play Max Hopp in front of 14,000 German fans so I’ve ordered my earplugs already.”
