“Timber is the modern defender and, as far as Im concerned, already in the outdoor category”

Marciano Vink thinks Jurriën Timber has a good chance of landing in Orange during the World Cup in Qatar. Like Rinus Israël, the ESPN analyst is impressed by the 20-year-old defender of Ajax.
Vink philosophies in conversation with Voetbal International about the defense of the Netherlands. If De Vrij plays well, you can move Van Dijk to the left. Then De Vrij centraal and Jurriën Timber comes to the right. As far as I am concerned, he is really the man in shape, he also showed that at Ajax this season. He is the modern defender and, as far as Im concerned, already in the outdoor category.
Timber currently seems to have an edge ahead of Matthijs de Ligt. At De Ligt you can see that after leaving, he had some trouble with the Juventus system. That hasn
t been in it for a while, says Vink.
However, Israel would choose De Ligt, alongside Van Dijk and De Vrij. In my opinion, Van Dijk is still waving his hands a little too much, which is perhaps too present in the field. But you cant help saying that we have a generation of top football players. They play at Barcelona, Liverpool, Internazionale, which is truly international world top. And with Jurriën Timber, you also have a top talent walking around. Besides being a good defender, he is also a good football player.
