Koeman offers praise to Milan star: “He has become a great player very quickly”

By Ben Dixon -

Following their impressive victory against Scotland, Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman has heavily praised AC Milan midfielder Tijjani Reijnders, deeming him ‘undroppable’ in an interview after the game.

Milan and the Netherlands have a history of incredible midfielders, and Reijnders will want to enter his name amongst the legends that have come before him – with performances like the one against Scotland, the Dutchman will achieve this shortly.

The Oranje won 4-0 on Friday night, and the Rossoneri midfielder played his part in two of the goals, with a goal and an assist – both contributions have received a lot of praise for their quality. Additionally, he was seen as the Man of the Match by some viewers, which is a testament to his performance.

However, this is nothing new for the 25-year-old. This season, he has consistently impressed the Diavolo for several reasons. Everything stems from his quality, in the way in which he plays, but also his ability to perform at a high level for Milan wherever he is needed to be deployed.

Following the game, his National Team coach, Ronald Koeman, spoke to Dutch media outlet NOS and praised the midfielder for his performance and recent improvements. His words have been relayed by Milan Press.

Thoughts on Reijnders’ performance…

“The way he plays, he plays so easily, he has good acceleration and scores a great goal. Him next to De Jong? They both have light feet, as we say. They can accelerate with the ball. Tijjani has become a great player in a very short time. He cannot be left out of the Oranje.”

  1. Imagine if he was played in his proper position by a proper coach. He’d be the best midfielder in the league. Title that currently belongs to Hakan.

  2. Imagine if he had a defensive minded compatriot next to him like he has with Holland. Kid would actually cook like he’s suppose to.

  3. That’s because Tijjani is a Sexy Beast! Love this guy. his movements are very fluid. I’d loke to see him make the final pass into the box sooner – he hesitates a bit. And hopefully he improves his shooting, because he’s got rockets in his legs.
