Vanheusden feels like a football player again: “Now, of course, I want even more”

Zinho Vanheusden can call himself a football player again. Last weekend, the Belgian defender made his debut for AZ, which took office against FC Groningen. Vanheusden got one minute of regular playing time, but that minute did him well.
Last summer, AZ took over Vanheusden from Internazionale on a rental basis. He arrived in the Netherlands with a training delay due to a serious injury that he suffered in Italy. Thats why his debut at AZ was waiting until this weekend.
I
m thrilled to be back on the field after almost eight months of absence. Its been a long way, but now Im back here. It was a fantastic victory for the team. So Im really happy for the team, Vanheusden responded via the AZ channels.
Vanheusden had to fight for a long time to get back on the field. You just want to stand on the grass again. You just want to play football with your friends again and if we can also win 4-1, that
s good for everyone. Now all I want is more.

Over the past few weeks, Vanheusden made the competition selection a few times, but now trainer Pascal Jansen finally gave the simple Red Devil his debut. Of course, everyone wants to play, but I think I took my time after eight months of absence. We worked hard and well. It has gone step by step. This is the next step and hopefully we will continue to evolve like this.
What is the next step for Vanheusden? I want to play as much as possible, but its the trainer who decides. Im just here to help the team. I hope AZ will continue to do it like this, because the team is doing really well.
Vanheusden with AZ in charge, by the way, the latter is not a lie at all. Due to Ajaxs loss of points this weekend (home 1-1 against Go Ahead Eagles), AZ is the new leader in the Eredivisie after game days 8. The team from Alkmaar collected 20 points this season. Then Ajax follows with 19 points. PSV has 18 points. The people of Eindhoven took the boat 3-0 against Cambuur this weekend.
