Manager tells Siem de Jong he will be making debut
News from Holland today that Siem de Jong is going to be making his debut for PSV.
Voetbal International report that the on-loan Newcastle player has been told by manager Phillip Cocu that he will make his first team bow for PSV on Wednesday.
PSV host Roda JC in a Cup game tomorrow evening but seeing both Siem and Luuk de Jong in the same team will have to wait, as PSV Captain Luuk is suspended.
Siem de Jong has played twice now for the PSV reserves who compete in the second tier of Dutch football and currently top the table. He scored a stunning 30 yard free-kick in the first game against NAC Breda then followed that with his first full 90 minutes in a league match for 30 months.
Sunday saw Siem de Jong named as a first team sub for the first time as PSV lost 1-0 at home to Feyenoord, though he didn’t get on the pitch.
Now Wednesday he is set to step up again in his rehabilitation as an actual football player.
Good luck to his tomorrow and we will monitor with interest if he can stay fit AND return to form back in Dutch football.
