I think I’ve done well, so I’m assuming that I should remain,” says the 24-year-old defender, who know that Sunday is a tricky away game awaits on artificial turf against promoted FC Emmen. “We are now in the good path. If we take this line to continue, Emmen also not be a problem.”

“The trainer said, this is now my center, but your chance will come again. Then you know that you are going to the bowl to get yourself back in the “picture” to play. Nobody likes sitting on the sofa. But you must continue and on the training every day very hard to do your best. So I sit there, in each other.” The wait was long. But when Botteghin last week on the training injured afhaakte, knew Van Beek that his time had come. He entered Sunday leading the battle in won the top match against PSV (2-1) and also made Thursday against VVV-Venlo (4-1) to a convincing impression. “Al is such a tegengoal as a defender always sucks.”

Then you know that you are against VVV also three points go for it, otherwise everything will have been for nothing. That we have done. If we play with the passion and fight that at Feyenoord hear, we can beat anyone. Seven points is not a whole lot more. Who knows what beautiful things can happen.”
