Michael van Gerwen claimed another European Tour crown this past weekend. A 25th overall as he claimed the Gibraltar Darts Trophy once again, ‘Mighty Mike’ has his sights set on even more titles over the summer.

This includes the World Matchplay which Van Gerwen lost out on last year due to Phil Taylor beating him in his final ever edition of the tournament. He has his sights on the Phil Taylor Trophy but admits he is focused on Copenhagen and Hamburg now.

Van Gerwen also sent out a message to anyone wanting to beat him that he feels good and that it will take a lot to dethrone him currently.

“I can’t complain with my performance in Gibraltar and I think I have earned myself a good holiday,” said the Dutch star, who has lost just one game on the European Tour this year.

“The big one is the World Matchplay which I have my eye on, but first of all I will be focussed on the European Tour events in Copenhagen and Hamburg.”

“I like to play in European Tour events, I feel good playing in them – my confidence is there and I feel good so I think they will do well to beat me.

“I played phenomenal in this tournament, I didn’t make any mistakes.”
