Virgil van Dijk is confident that there will be other players standing up at the Dutch team, now that Arjen Robben has placed a point behind his international career. The attacker indicated on Tuesday evening after the last World Cup qualification competition against Sweden (2-0) that after missing the World Cup and 96 national matches he found it all right.
A choice that Van Dijk regrets but also respects:”Arjen is a perfect professional, he always goes for the full one hundred percent”, the defender of Southampton said in a conversation with the NOS,”His qualities are not normal, he also shows this weekly at Bayern Munich. I learned a lot from him without knowing it.
The question is who is going to take the Dutch national team in hand, now that every member of the big four is unlikely to be eligible for the Dutch team anymore,”It’s a pity, he makes the choice and we have to go further. We still have a lot of players with a lot of quality.
Bas Dost also regretted the decision of Robben,”Arjen is really a great player. Pure class, but I don’t think he wanted to close this way,” said the attacker of Sporting Portugal,”Robben is a player in the outdoor category. I am very happy that I was able to play with him.
