Siem de Jong makes PSV playing return with superb 30 yard goal – Watch it here
Siem de Jong sadly became a bit of a joke figure at Newcastle United, injuries and form meaning he was restricted to only four Premier League starts in two seasons at Newcastle.
Sent out on loan for the season to join brother Luuk at PSV, we wait to see what he can do back in Dutch football.
Moving to Holland, Siem de Jong was still recovering from his latest injury and needed to build his fitness back up before he could commence playing.
Friday night saw the Dutch international return to action, playing for the PSV second team and scoring this stunning goal (watch it below).
I thought there looked a canny crowd there for a reserve match and when I checked up, it turns out that in the second tier of Dutch football, the likes of PSV and Ajax have second teams playing.
Friday night saw Siem de Jong and PSV second team away at NAC Breda (previous European opponents for Newcastle), a crowd of 14,864 watching a 1-1 draw which keeps the PSV reserves at the top of the table in the second level of Dutch football.
The media in Holland report that as well as his stunning 30 yard free-kick, Siem de Jong did well in his 62 minutes comeback.
The Newcastle player subbed as lack of match practice told, watching from the bench as Breda scored an equaliser in added time.
Interesting to see what happens once Siem de Jong is seen in the PSV first team but just for now enjoy his brilliant free-kick…and the fact he didn’t pick up another injury!
