The home game against sc Heerenveen is also the last home game of this season, in which PSV will most likely seize the important second place.
For Erick Gutiérrez, the match against Heerenveen can also be his last home match, but if it is up to Ruud van Nistelrooij, certainly not. The Mexican is sure of his case and has made his decision to leave PSV. However, Van Nistelrooij has other plans for the midfielder.
As crazy as it sounds because the Mexican does not always play, Van Nistelrooij is very satisfied with the contribution of the midfielder from Mexico. However, the trainer is also about Joey Veerman. During the press conference, Van Nistelrooij was full of praise for Veerman, who is developing more and more in midfield. Joey is taking very good steps. This is important for the development of a midfielder from a top club with aspirations for the Dutch national team. It’s part of it and he has turned the switch, both physically and in the mindset.
Partly due to the performance of Joey Veerman and the starting place of Ibrahim Sangaré, Erick Gutiérrez is more often on the bench than he would like. “It’s hard for him too. We are discussing this and those discussions are constructive. Earnie Stewart is doing a great job at it, allowing me to fully focus on Sunday. I count on players with ongoing contracts and I would like to keep them here, I can say that about it”, says Ruud van Nistelrooij.
