Description:

Justin Blijow is a product of “Varkenoord” – the famous Feyenoord youth academy, known for producing players such as Robin van Persie, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordy Clasieand Leroy Fer. Justin has not made his debut in the first team yet, but he has been on the bench as a potential substitute for Kenneth Vermeer and it is possible that he will get his chance this upcoming season (2016/17). He is a regular Dutch international and is currently a member of the Oranje U-19 squad, where he is a backup to Yannick van Osch from PSV Eindhoven.

 

Quotes:

“The teenager started his Feyenoord career with the amateurs but was soon asked to join the professional academy. Biljow is excellent in one-on-one situations and has a good mentality. Feyenoord coaches often praise his ‘good attitude’ and he has already played for the Dutch Under-19 team. If he continues to improve he is more than likely to replace his idol, Kenneth Vermeer, as Feyenoord’s No1 goalkeeper. Girlfriends, however, have to wait. Asked recently by Feyenoord TV to choose between a girlfriend and football, he replied: ‘Football of course. A relationship with a girl can end and with football you can earn some money. It’s more valuable for me to invest in that now than in a girl.’ His aim is to one day play for a Premier League club.”
