Zakaria Aboukhlal has good hope on Saturday that he will be allowed to enter base at AZ more often in the coming period.

The twenty-year-old attacker came into the field in the home game with ADO Den Haag (2-1) and ensured that his team was victorious with two hits.

"I try to make it difficult for the trainer and I think I should maybe play", Aboukhlal said afterwards in front of the

.

"That decision rests with the trainer. I hope that I will play, I do my best every day."

Aboukhlal started four times this season as a basic player at AZ and came into the field ten times as a substitute.

He recorded his third and fourth goal of the season, which only came a minute before time on Saturday.

"This was not the way we wanted to do it, but fortunately it worked out", continued Aboukhlal.

"The 1-1 was the connection goal, but we as AZ of course just have to win against ADO. Then you are looking for the second one. Fortunately the ball fell at my feet and I was able to shoot it in."

AZ trainer Pascal Jansen does not yet know whether he will give Zakaria Aboukhlal a base place in the next match.

Jansen: 'Zakaria knows what his role is'

Despite his strong substitution, according to trainer Pascal Jansen, it is not yet a foregone conclusion that Aboukhlal will actually get a base place in the next match.

"Whether Zakaria deserves a starting place? I make choices based on certain expectations prior to a duel. Zakaria knows exactly where he stands and what his role is. We don't have to worry about that at the moment," said Jansen.

"I know that Zakaria is a guy who can score goals. He is exasperated and knows what his situation is at the moment and how he can be of value to this team. He is one of the many good players we have in this squad. It is nice that we can call on him during this busy month. "
