‘Of course, PSV is also a step up sporty, Slot was incredibly sporty’

Guus Til feels at home at PSV, which concluded the preparation on Saturday with a 2-1 practice win over Real Betis. The attacking midfielder has recovered from groin complaints and was active at the Philips Stadium for the first time.
Til played on rent for Feyenoord last season, but now chose to switch to PSV. He wanted to leave Russia and the people of Eindhoven were able to take over him permanently. โ€œI‘ve been taken care of incredibly well. It’s a top club,โ€ says the Dutch international to ESPN. โ€œOf course, the choice was difficult. I had a great time at Feyenoord, but stability is important to me. And of course, sporting life is a step higher. Arne Slot was incredibly sporty.โ€
With PSV, Til hopes to enforce Champions League football. He thinks that coach Ruud van Nistelrooij‘s team is in good shape, but still sees areas for improvement. โ€œWe are extremely dangerous in the counter. If we put pressure and that ball goes into the middle, you know that Ibi (Ibrahim Sangarรฉ, ed.) is going to conquer that ball with his power. Then the engines start running on the flanks (Cody Gakpo and Noni Madueke, ed.). This is how we get our chances now. But we have to take steps to become even more dominant during the game. We need to be more varied.โ€
Til is confidently looking forward to the tests of strength with Ajax and AS Monaco. These duels follow each other at a rapid pace. โ€œThe battle for the Johan Cruijff Scale is important, but the Champions League preliminary round is even more important. These are two incredibly important competitions.โ€
Luuk de Jong โ€œI think we are readyโ€, also judges Luuk de Jong. โ€œIt looked good against a fine Betis. We defended and attacked very well together. Things also looked good in the changeover and with the calm at the ball. We were a bit sloppy at times, but we’
re going to work on that.โ€
