As a newcomer to the Eredivisie, FC Volendam has a hard time in the first month and a half. Tomorrow evening, the Volendam team will meet Vitesse in Arnhem, which also only managed to win once. In football talk show De Aftrap, trainer Wim Jonk reveals tonight that he has set the bar high for this season. “My phone has 40 points.”

    Normally, about 34 points should be enough to maintain a club in the Eredivisie. In the first 6 matches FC Volendam only scored 4 points. There were compliments, but only from FC Twente (1-0) was won. The away match against FC Groningen ended in 2-2.

    “It’s a high goal, but I believe in that”

    For Jonk, the disappointing results are no reason to be alarmed. “You know approximately how many points you have to get. It is a high target, but I believe in that,” said 55-year-old Volendammer, who is in his fourth season as head coach of FC Volendam.

    The second guest at the table is Kiki Musampa (45). The former Ajax player has been a trainer of Jong FC Volendam since last season, which plays in the second division. At the end of last month it was announced that he will also be working as an assistant to Young Orange national coach Erwin van de Looi. Van de Looi approached him after Stijn Schaars had retired.

In addition to the guests, Erik-Jan Brinkman plays the game Raak de Vlag against a (former) football player every week. This time he will compete against Martijn Kaars in Monnickendam.

    The broadcast ends with the new line-up of our own team FC De Aftrap, which is quite mixed up by Jonk.
