Van Hanegem remains skeptical about Schmidt (PSV): ‘Moniz also won the cup there’


Willem van Hanegem remains skeptical about brand new PSV coach Roger Schmidt. The German made a big impression in 2014 as a trainer of Red Bull Salzburg, which waltzed over Ajax in the Europa League: De Kromme says little, however.

Schmidt was presented at PSV in March. Van Hanegem then frowned and still looks at it six months later. “The whole of the Netherlands is suddenly turned upside down: well what we’ve brought in now… “, he says in front of the FOX Sports cameras.” Now we shouldn’t pretend that we suddenly brought in a wonder of the world. “

Van Hanegem cannot do much with the European diptych from 2014. “If you think logically now: Ajax has never been used to being put under pressure, right from the start. Well, he did and Ajax knew it. no more. Can happen. If you were two months later and Ajax played against it again, then I don’t think Ajax was surprised again. ” Schmidt won the Austrian double in that season with Red Bull Salzburg. “But Ricardo Moniz also won the cup with that team? Isn’t that great? And Excelsior puts it in the dirt …”

Schmidt is said to have made his unofficial debut with PSV on Friday evening, but the exhibition game against VV UNA was canceled at the last minute. The Eindhoven team will travel to Germany next weekend for a double program: Saturday there will be a practice against SC Verl, one day later KFC Uerdingen 05 awaits.
