Schouten surprised after Hofland ruling: ‘Thought he did indoor rooms’

Kevin Hofland has a clear goal with Willem II for the coming season. The trainer settles for nothing less than promotion to the Eredivisie.
Hofland was relegated as interim trainer on the closing day of the Eredivisie with Willem II. Although the field of participants in the Kitchen Champion Division is rock-solid with Heracles Almelo and PEC Zwolle, among others, the practice master does not hide his ambitions. โ€œIt is clear here that we want to go back as soon as possible,โ€ he tells ESPN. โ€œWe‘re going to try that this season. I have my own goal and then I speak purely for myself: I just want to be a champion.โ€
Erik Schouten, who has been transferred free from SC Cambuur, is surprised by the words of his trainer. โ€œThat’
s what he said to me. I thought he did that inside rooms, but he also brings it out. It‘s nice that he says it, but it’s hard enough I know from experienceโ€, the midfielder refers to his previous seasons at the second level at Cambuur and FC Volendam. Schouten does not fear that the pressure will soon become too great in this way. โ€œHe will soon leave that one again.โ€
