Joey Veerman would be a backup for PSV. That argues Kenneth Perez in the preview on sc Heerenveen – Ajax on ESPN. The 22-year-old midfielder flirted with the step to a top club this week.
“The summit in the Netherlands seems very nice, I would like to try it,” said Veerman at ESPN. Perez understands that. “I think he could bring a lot of football in PSV if the trainer wants it. Otherwise, it makes no sense. He needs to take a good look at that,” advises the ESPN analyst.
“Because Mohamed Ihattaren is this way, we think: Schmidt cant deal with technical players. But that wont be the case, will it? He will be able to deal with Veerman”, continues Perez. “But he says he also has a certain instruction manual: if you say something to him, you can expect something in return. Thats not always convenient, especially at a club where two players are pying on your spot.”
Perez thinks Veerman is a wonderful kid. “But does he also have the sacred fire to play in the absolute top? Does he really want to become kneiterfit?” , he wonders aloud. “Hes one of the best football players in the Eredivisie, but top clubs dont always work the way you want, so you have to make concessions.”
