Schmidt puts Vice Captain Gakpo on the couch: ‘Only a few minutes with orange’

PSV trainer Roger Schmidt appointed Cody Gakpo as vice-captain of his team this week, but let the born Eindhovenaar start on Wednesday against Galatasaray on the couch. The EK-goer becomes PSVs secret weapon, Schmidt announces.
Gakpo joined later during the PSV preparation and, according to Schmidt, needs to be calm down. He has only been back in training for one week and his last club game was against FC Utrecht (May 16, red. ), says the German in conversation with RTL7. He only played with the national team for a few minutes, he refers to the Dutch and North Macedonia EC competition, in which Gakpo made his international debut.
The attacker must initially give priority to the foursome Yorbe Vertessen, Noni Madueke, Eran Zahavi and Mario Götze. But it looks like he will make his appearance later in the game. To bring some fresh legs in, when they get a bit more tired. I think this is the best way to deal with him.
PSV and Galatasray kick off at 9 p.m. Wednesday. The return in Istanbul is one week later and the winner of the diptych hits Celtic or FC Midtjylland in the third Champions League heat.
