Love Triangle at PSV: ‘All the Ingredients to Be Successful’

Marcel Brands has spoken out in the media for the first time since his second term at PSV. The successor to Toon Gerbrands as managing director of Eindhoven residents hopes that everything in its current composition will fall into place.
Brands will work closely with technical director John de Jong at PSV. โ€œI think the network you have together is many times larger than the one you have as an individual. That‘s what you’re trying to use,โ€ he says on the club channels. โ€œWe have already done a number of things together and that is going great. John can completely lose his egg in his role, but has another sparring partner at the club with me.โ€
โ€œOn the other hand, I hope to help Ruud (van Nistelrooij, ed.) with the experience I have. With that triangle, you hope to have all the ingredients to be successful,โ€ Brands, who comes over from Everton, makes it clear. Brands hopes to grow both on and off the field with PSV. โ€œI want to take it one step further, actually in everything.โ€
The general manager acknowledges that the sporting aspect remains paramount. โ€œBut you also want people to enjoy working at PSV and feel proud of it,โ€ he adds. โ€œIf you‘ve ever been on the flat cart, you know what you’re doing it for.โ€
