Myron Boadu has to do things more surprisingly with a spot on the couch during the EC qualifying game with Young Wales on Tuesday night. This is while Brian Brobbey left the Young Orange camp, due to injury. National coach Erwin van de Looi explains why he prefers Daishawn Redan over Boadu.
“We looked openly and honestly at what he has brought,” says the national coach in conversation with ESPN. “We know Myron is in a difficult situation at his club. He doesn‘t play too much there and he has a pretty hard time with us too.”
According to Van de Looi, he wants to give Boadu the confidence and work with him, but also expects more from the rush hour. “Myron needs to provide energy. We don’t think this happened enough. That‘s why we choose Redan, he does bring a lot of energy. You can expect a certain match setting from everyone. It starts with that,” says Van de Looi, who states that it is not the form of Boadu. “It’s easy to say ‘I’m going for it‘ and ‘I do it‘, but it’s about what you show every day at the training sessions and in competitions. You always have to put that along the bar honestly.”
The practice master states that choosing Redan is the most honest right now. “This is not meant to be a signal, but that‘s how he (Boadu, ed.) might have to understand it. In the end, this choice was made because we want to win the competition, but I do think he should do something with this,” concludes Van de Looi.
