FC Twente has good hope that Oussama Assaidi Wednesday night in the semi-finals of the KNVB Cup against AZ can play a role. The star player of the tukkers is already a few weeks on the side with knee injuries.
Assaidi trained Tuesday with Twente and trainer Gertjan Verbeek seems to sort out a move for the attacker. “It is wait and see if his knee is a reaction”, says Verbeek. “But the expectations are positive.”
The only injured Hidde ter Avest is replaced by Jeroen van der Lely.
Mounir El Hamdaoui trained again after his hamstring injury, but the duel with AZ is still too early. He is coming weekend against FC Groningen may be operational again.
