Raymond van Barneveld seemed very down and depressed in the press conference following his first round defeat he claimed he will “always hate (him)myself” for not winning and further claiming that “(his 5 world titles) They dont matter”.
He told us that he “Doesnt belong at the top level anymore” and that after two years of losing round 1 he described himself as an “Amateur”
We hope Raymond will remember what a legend for the game he has been and he will enjoy his retirement.
You may have lost to Darin Young but you are the world champion in our hearts
From us here at DailyDarts we would like to say goodbye and thank you to Barney!
