Description:

PSV Eindhoven academy is one of the best in Europe. In recent years, it has developed very talented players such as Memphis Depay, Jetro Willems and Jürgen Locadia. Currently, the “Boeren” youth squads are rich in many great players, and one of them is definitely Dante Rigo. He joined PSV youth system in 2007 from Lierse. He was one of the key players for Belgium at the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup, where young “Red Devils” have taken the bronze medal. He is on the radar of many top European clubs, including Juventus and Milan, but it seems that it would be best for him if he could stay in Holland and play in the PSV first team, which he can achieve soon.

 

Quotes:

“Holland papers are comparing him with the Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman, even if the 17 year’s old idol is undoubtedly the former Juventus star Andrea Pirlo. The Bianconeri, by the way, are not the only team interested in Rigo’s services as also the Serie A giants AC Milan set sights on him.”
