“When Botman was pushed to Orange, I was hoping for a phone call.”

Mats Knoester reported to the selection of Young Orange. The Heracles Almelo defender secretly hoped for an election for coach Erwin van de Loois team, but was at that time when the bell came in the south of the country.

I had a weekend off and was back in the south to train with my brother and see my family. After the call I quickly got in my car, drove back to Almelo to get my shoes and went on to Zeist, Knoester starts on the Heracles website.
After a negative corontest, Knoester was able to join the selection of Jong Oranje. When Sven Botman was moved to Orange
s A-selection, I secretly hoped for a phone call. I didnt expect it on Sunday. Of course I am very happy to be part of the selection now. Its a nice step and Im proud to be here.
At Jong Oranje Knoester has to deal with Peter Reekers, who is active both as assistant to Jong Oranje and Heracles. Due to the loss of weight of Abdou Harroui and the sliding of Botman, a place was freed up in the selection. Mats was already close to it. He has proven in Almelo what he can do in a short time. We like to have him on the team, says Reekers about the election of Knoester.

Ðÿ¦ ð… ð® @ReekersPeter: It is a reward for the development of Mats.
