‘It’s great that Van Gaal mentions my name, I didn’t expect it’

Mark Flekken is honored to be in the picture of the Dutch team, as he says to 1Limburg. After the 6-1 gain in Turkey, the national coach Louis van Gaal told us that he will soon be visiting SC Freiburg, where the 28-year-old goalkeeper is active.
Flekken has become the first choice for Freiburg this season, which is quite fourth in the Bundesliga after three duels. That has also been noticed in Zeist. โ€œI had never heard of him, but he seems to be doing very well. That‘s where we’re going, for example,โ€ Van Gaal said on Tuesday. โ€œFlekken is his name. Flek-ken. Then he‘ll know we’re coming to see.โ€
The Limburger, who started working in Germany at a young age, responds enthusiastically. โ€œIt‘s great that he calls my name,โ€ he tells the broadcaster. โ€œI didn’t expect it. I didn‘t see the video until this morning (Wednesday morning, save). But it’s nothing, wait and see first. I just have to focus on Freiburg and hope he picks a good pot.โ€
