Schmidt praise about returned PSV mercenary: ‘He was a keyplayer’

Roger Schmidt thinks Ritsu Doan could be of great value for PSV next season. The 23-year-old Japanese was rented to Arminia Bielefeld in the previous football year and made a good impression there.
In conversation with Voetbal International, Schmidt tells that Doan can be still important for PSV. “He had a very good season at Arminia Bielefeld in the Bundesliga,” says the German practice master. “There he was even a key player. I talked to him and hes excited to get back to PSV. When he comes back from the Olympic Games in Japan, he joins us again.”
Last season Doan accounted for five hits and three assists in the Bundesliga. Several clubs were interested in the attacker after his period in Bielefeld. However, Doan is still a PSV player, who took over from FC Groningen for about 7.5 million euros two years ago.
