Eredivisie 2013/2014 (ongoing): 5 matches/0 goals (PSV Eindhoven)
Jorrit is a “product” of famous PSV Eindhoven academy. He was one of the leaders of Netherlands youth national team that won UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship 2012 in Slovenia. He made his Eredivisie debut on the 10th of August against NEC Nijemegen in a 5-0 home win. He replaced Karim Rekik after 86 minutes. Later on, he had to replace injured Rekik in the next matches and did very well, even in “the classic game” against Ajax Amsterdam won by “Boeren” 4-0. One of the most talented Dutch defenders and maybe a serious candidate to be a member of the senior “Oranje” national team in the near future.
“He is an example in character and mentality. He’s only B player for now, but he’ll play in the first team very soon. Type of player like de Boer or Moisander.”
(Marcel Brands – PSV Eindhoven technical manager)
