From Eredivisie has had a ‘disfigured weekend’. That is what Hugo Borst concludes. In his Monday column for Algemeen Dagblad he does not hold back: Carlos Vinícius (PSV) and Cyriel Dessers (Feyenoord) got off badly.
Borst saw ‘bad football’ and ‘laughably bad footballers’ on the Dutch fields. He picks out two strikers. ‘Did they think at PSV: Carlos Vinicius comes from the country of Romário and Ronaldo, so he must also be good?’, the columnist begins about the Brazilian attacker, who came on Saturday against PEC Zwolle after 81 minutes.
‘I have now seen the striker together for an hour, really, he is the Lucas Pratto of PSV. Let me say it even more strongly: compared to Vinicius, Lucas Pratto was a top striker. What would his fellow players at PSV say behind their hand during training? How Vinícius moves, runs and sprints, turns and rounds. His arrival detracts from the brilliant moves that PSV (they got Romário and Ronaldo) once did.’
Dessers also gets knocked down. ‘With his beautiful blue eyes. The Belgian got his chance in the starting lineup against RKC. He wasted three imposed chances, misses that cost Feyenoord two points. Fortunately, he fits well in the group, which is always highly valued. The annoying thing was his lethargic attitude. Grab an energy bar, man.’
