Kenneth Perez believes that Wout Weghorst deserves a call for the Dutch team in March. The striker scores at Wolfsburg and according to the ESPN analyst, football coach Frank de Boer can no longer be around him.
Weghorst managed to find the net eight times in his last seven games for Wolfsburg. Perez does not understand that the striker does not or hardly get into the picture at Oranje. “It‘s special that a players who scored so many goals in the Bundesliga, a pretty good competition of course, hardly gets into the picture at Oranje”, says Perez in Football Talk of ESPN.
“It is impossible to sell that the number three on the top scoring list in Germany is not in the spotlight. And that Luuk de Jong, who plays very little at Seville, is preferred as a pinchhitter?” , continues Perez. “Maybe we can bring Weghorst as the first striker. Then Memphis Depay can move to a different position. Why shouldn’t Weghorst try it for a month?”
Perez does not expect that De Boer will again not include Weghorst in the Oranje selection in March. “I would find that very strange”, concludes the analyst.
