Despite transfer rumors, PSV is counting on Yorbe Vertessen in De Kuip

A week after the victory over FC Twente, the next cup match awaits PSV. In Rotterdam, a place in the quarter-finals is at stake against Feyenoord. In De Kuip, trainer Peter Bosz simply counts on Yorbe Vertessen. According to various media, the Belgian wants to leave PSV.

Union Berlin would be concrete to take over Yorbe Vertessen, but PSV wants to keep the selection together as much as possible. But the Belgian is determined and seems to prefer a transfer over a possible championship for PSV. That hasn’t happened yet, because he will still be there on Wednesday evening.

“You often hear these kinds of stories during the transfer period. Yorbe Vertessen will be there on Wednesday evening. We need him,” Peter Bosz said on Tuesday afternoon.

If it is up to the trainer, the Belgian will remain in Eindhoven for the next six months, but that chance seems very small. Now that Hirving Lozano and Noa Lang are returning from injury, Vertessen seems to have become plan B. And so he wants to leave.

“I understand that Yorbe Vertessen wants to play more.”

Bosz: “I understand that he wants to play more. But he will also understand that the club needs him to win trophies. There is something to be said for both sides.”

In any case, Vertessen should help PSV secure a place in the quarter-finals of the KNVB Cup on Wednesday. That is not an easy job since the people of Eindhoven are visiting Feyenoord.

“We played against FC Twente last week. That was the number three of the Eredivisie, now the number two awaits. If we win, we will receive number four in the rankings as a reward: AZ. Then you can speak of a tough draw,” concludes the coach. Who is the favorite? “I’m never going to say that, it’s all or nothing tomorrow.”

“I hope we win four times in De Kuip this season.”

While the club failed to make history on Sunday by winning the competition for the eighteenth time in a row, it can achieve another great performance on Wednesday. PSV has already won twice this season against Feyenoord in De Kuip. Something that only happened fourteen times before this season. It could win for the third time this year in De Kuip on Wednesday.

“I especially hope that there will be a fourth time,” Bosz responded wittily. “Only the fourth match is not against Feyenoord,” the trainer referred to a cup final in April.
