Barรงa dream club feasible for ‘antelope’ Rensch: ‘Now step further than Dest’

Devyne Rensch made his debut for the Dutch team against Turkey on Tuesday, but he is far from his top. That‘s what the former youth trainer of Ajax’s eighteen-year-old defender Peter van der Horst says.
According to Van der Horst, Rensch had a tough road to the top. โ€œWhoever thinks it was all coming to him is wrong,โ€ he says to the Algemeen Dagblad. For example, Rensch‘s family did not have it wide and Van der Horst had to step up regularly to pay the dues at VV Unicum. Also, because of growing pains, Rensch cannot play for a year when he is twelve years old.
However, Rensch is fighting back and soon plays at Youth Plan Netherlands. โ€œThat’
s where Devyne, an exceptional talent, immediately noticed. Not just seen football. Also because of his motor skills and way of walking. It‘s like an antelope. I’m not comparing him to Frank Rijkaard for a reason. He was also smart, quiet and fast. And he has a good technique and is two-legged.โ€
Ajax picked him up and Rensch had his breakthrough last season. โ€œI understand that people are wondering if it all isn‘t going too hard. I don’t think that. In fact, I think he‘s only sixty percent of his ability. There’s so much potential left in it.โ€
As is true for many boys, FC Barcelona is Rensch‘s dream club. โ€œThe difference with Devyne is: it may be feasible for him. Now Sergiรฑo Dest is playing there. But let’s face it: Devyne doesn‘t have to be inferior to that. I think he’s a step further now,โ€ says Van der Horst.
