Last week Robbin Ruiter was in PSV for the first time. If Van Bommel chooses him again today, he is face to face with his old employer FC Utrecht. The 32-year-old goalkeeper exchanged FC Utrecht for the English Sunderland in 2017. This summer Ruiter made the switch to PSV.
📺 Will it be back in the starting line-up at @PSV tonight? In that case, as Robbin Ruiter knew earlier this week, the former goalkeeper of #fcutrecht will have a goosebump moment. Watch the interview with the former FC Utrecht goalie 👇Avatar

De Wit: "Never had a chance at Ajax on the spot"
Since coming to AZ, Dani de Wit is almost certain of a basic place. "That is also what I came for, so that is really nice", De Wit tells the NOS . The move from Ajax to AZ was therefore a conscious one. Ten Hag was satisfied with him, but De Wit knew that he would hardly be playing. "I mainly got chances in the last ten minutes of duels. I am very grateful to Ten Hag for the raids," De Wit looks back. "But I always hoped for a base place and I never got it from him. So in that respect it also feels like I never had a chance."
