“In many ways, this is for everyone a new start”, it starts with the coach. “I found that I also aanvoerderschap had to change. Hence Virgil it is. It is also a nice step, with even more responsibility. I find that it is. He has the age and he also plays at a big club.”

Koeman has also already reserve captains in his head. “We also have a spelersraad. There is also a number of guys in which, as Virgil is not there, captain. That are Georginio Wijnaldum, Kevin Strootman or Daley Blind. But again: it does not stop for the boys of the band do not carry. I pin me with anything.”

‘Or mine captains a protected position? That is not, but these are guys who are at big clubs play. Who have responsibility for that. Kevin Strootman makes me a very good impression. I found him at the previous national football team not the Kevin he wants to be, that image I had of him. Also guys like Wijnaldum are very important for this team. In terms of experience, I find that this kind of guys to ensure that we get better and better.”
