CorSport: ‘Super Reijnders’ never stops ahead of Euros with the Netherlands

By Isak Möller -

Tijjani Reijnders was one of the best players for AC Milan this past season, impressing above all with his quality on the ball and work-rate. Indeed, the midfielder never stops and is now preparing for the Euros. 

Milan signed Reijnders for around €20m plus bonuses last summer and although everyone could see the potential, few expected him to blossom so quickly. While he could have scored more goals, ending up at four, he definitely showcased his tactical awareness and passing ability.

As highlighted by Corriere dello Sport this morning (via MilanNews), Reijnders has no intention of slowing down despite a demanding season with Milan. Indeed, after starting 44 out of 50 appearances, he’s now preparing for the Euros with the Netherlands.

The Oranje will be up against Austria, France and Poland in the group, so it certainly won’t be an easy ride, but Reijnders is expected to play a key role. He has already shown his qualities with the national team after making his debut in September last year, but there is naturally more pressure now.

In any case, as the newspaper concludes, Reijnders doesn’t see this as a burden but rather an opportunity, even if he might be a bit tired once the tournament comes to an end.

  1. Is it only me…I sometimes fear that our players will develop too fast and Cardinal/Management will cash in on them.

    Tijjani can get to 8 – 10 goals a season for Milan comfortably and get closer Frankie DeJong levels in a 2-3 seasons but I fear if he has one more good season he will be sold to the highest bid…

    Just when we had the perfect Tonali, we sold him (on a footballing level, I am sure Milan found out about his gambling well before it became public knowledge or the Newcastle transfer) .

    I just hope we can keep Tijjani for the foreseeable future and renew him accordingly each team he hits the next level (as that is how the best teams are now doing, we are always a year or 2 behind not just other European teams but seria a teams)

    1. Sorry but you are overhiping him,

      he has poor leve of shooting
      Narrow vision of the game, lead to him to bad decisions
      Weak defensive awareness, cost us lot of goals
      Not impressed by his Workrate

      An average player

      1. You think Reijnders has narrow vision of the game? That’s a good one, laughable.
        He was given a role this season by Pioli that actually restricts his overflowing talent in his distribution and his availability to open space.
        His teammates also selfishly kept the ball for individual plays or were too static off the ball too many times to really bring out his game.
        If you didn’t see this it is you who has narrow vision of the game.

        1. It’s Reijnders who prone selfish behavior shooting like a dumb instead of passing, only time will tell, even a Koopmeiners is way more efficient than him

      2. Narrow vision of the game? LMAO!!!

        Sam, buddy, if you don’t understand what you’re watching, please ask questions or be quiet while you learn.

        Reijnders is easily the most creative mid we have. His vertical game is the best among the mids. What are you even talking about?

        Shooting? Yea, can improve. Passing? Better than most. 92% pass completion rate.

        Honestly man….

  2. It was painful but in hindsight management absolutely made the right move by selling Tonali. But I don’t see Tiji ever approaching Frankie De Jong levels, he has too many holes in his game. He will also be 26 in July, he’s not a raw young talent (de Jong is just one year older actually)

    1. It’s Frenkie, and what is this comparison with De Jong as if he is a world class player? De Jong hasn’t managed to perform great since his transfer to Barcelona. Especially considering the transfer fee. Just like Ruud Gullit said.

  3. Reijnders is easily one of the best signings we made last summer along with Puli. I’m so excited to watch him develop and improve.

    Silky smooth on the ball, accurate passer, great vertical vision and drive. Just need to improve his shots on target.


  4. ‘super’? More like ‘above average’ i suppose. He made 12 passes vs Germany btw. That’s 12….in total….
    I’ve never seen a signing from last summer that’s more over hyped…RLC is in the running though
