Boskamp has nothing but praise for Feyenoord coach Arne Sloat: “He took over that group” | Premier League

“What kind of question is that, boy?”

Johan Boskamp was clearly not happy with Aster Nziemana’s question if Feyenoord was the deserving hero in the Netherlands. “They only lost once, to PSV, and that was not deserved,” he laughs.

“Arnie Sloat is an exceptional coach,” says Philip Joss. Dutch T1 let 18 boys go last summer – and didn’t raise Cyriel Dessers’ option either – and got 15 new names in their place. complete puzzle.

“However, I felt the new guys were better under him,” Boskamp says.

One of De Kuip’s new stars: Santiago Jimenez. The striker came from Cruz Azul in his native Mexico, where he was sidelined. In the Eredivisie, he scored 15 goals and made 3 assists.

“At first I thought he wouldn’t touch the marble,” Boskamp recalls the $4 million man. “His penetration is entirely the coach’s merit.”

“The great thing is: 4 or 5 young boys coming in. They were crying in front of 50,000 fans. Enough reasons for the fans to love the coach and the team.”

Only the question “Does Luke stay?” Burns on the lips in the Netherlands. “The only other options are Tottenham or Ajax,” said Goss. “What? Are you going to ruin my day again?” Boskamp stubbornly replies.

It is clear: the coach must stay. “He brought a kind of mania to this group. I often leave the field 5 minutes before time, but then the players still come full steam ahead. The passion is huge.”

And also why he became a champion after one “undeserved” defeat.
