Eredivisie Round Up 10/10/10
PSV Eindhoven head the Dutch Eredivisie league with one of only two unbeaten runs still intact heading into the international break. The 3-0 home win against VVV Venlo kept them ahead of Ajax who suffered a shock defeat at the Arena to Utrecht. Reigning champions FC Twente lie in third spot with a 4-2 victory over FC Groningen ending the visitors own unbeaten run. Willem II stay firmly rooted to the bottom despite earning their first point of the season, a goal-less draw at Vitesse. Former leaders Ajax cannot look to their European exploits as an excuse as Utrecht were also in mid-week Europa League action and has 24 hours lesser to recover.
Feyenoord, one of the bigger names in the Netherlands, currently sit in 13th place following a series of poor results in what for them has been a disappointing start to the 2010/11 campaign. Coach Mario Been has refused to panic during September but heading into mid-October languishing closer to the bottom 3 than the title-chasers must be a concern.
Ajax have been linked with young Copenhagen striker Kenneth Zohore but the 16-year old has denied all knowledge of the reports saying that he is happy where he is. Despite previous short spells on trial with Chelsea and Inter, Zohore said ‘I have no plans to leave Copenhagen and I train and develop myself here’.
Feyenoord’s young South African midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo, who only made his first-team breakthrough this term, has set his aim high and has voiced his intention to break into international football as soon as he can. The 19-year old is currently involved with the U-23 squad but is looking to impress sufficiently to catch the eye of the national coach. ‘It is every players dream to represent his country and I am no exception.’
