About performance of his team against the English wanted to Koeman, that Virgil van Dijk as club captain has been appointed, still nothing lost. He told me not or Jeroen Zoet or Jasper Cillessen will be the goalkeeper in the Arena.
“Sweet is doing well at PSV, and Cillessen in the matches that he plays in Barcelona as well. If I am not for Cillessen choose, it is not because he under-played. Because then I had him not selected.”
