Jansen: 'Never considered keeping Joey out of the selection'

Joey Veerman has been burned for weeks with a transfer.

Where, for example, PSV leaves Denzel Dumfries out of the selection due to transfer problems, Heerenveen coach Johnny Jansen has never doubted that.

"I never thought about that. If nothing happens around Joey, nothing will happen. If a club comes, then we will act on it. Joey has specific qualities, but if he is sold, we can make that money too. reinvest in new players."

Van Wonderen: 'Many guys who are not used to this level'

Go Ahead Eagles only has three selection players with experience in the Eredivisie.

Trainer Kees van Wonderen therefore expects that his team will need some time.

"We have a lot of guys who are not used to this level. I think in the coming matches they will experience what the level of the Eredivisie really is, the level they have to go to. If you then have the ability to play with guts and participate If you want to go into the level, then you can really play a significant role this season."
