’Luuk de Jong is good enough for the role as a pinchhitter in the European top’

Luuk de Jong is this season with his hits again of great value for PSV.

“Luuk de Jong has this European campaign, international fact put on the map with four goals. That goals – three by the head and speak a lot more than his performance in the Eredivisie. That are international however, much lower ranked,” writes Kieft, in his column of Saturday.

“For himself, The Young put the bar higher. Although a rise to an international top club a difficult story continues, I do not see why he has no role as pinchhitter can play at that level. Such a role as Olivier Giroud at Chelsea. Wondering if there is such a thing for him comes after his great hits in this episode of the Champions League.”
