It was a night to remember for Kjell Peersman and Koen Jansen who made their first start for PSV U21 and had a great impact on the emphatic victory.
'This makes all the hard work worthwhile'
Kjell Peersman finally made his comeback after a six-month injury lay-off. “I’m delighted to be back in action. I’ve been waiting for this moment”, admitted the goalkeeper. “It’s been a tough time but I’ve come back stronger, thanks to the support from PSV, my family and friends.” The shot-stopper feels the successful comeback is a just reward for all the hard work he has been doing. “This makes all the hard work worthwhile. I am pleased to have made my first start and I think I did well on my debut. I am definitely a happy man”.
“A great feeling’
Koen Jansen also looked back at his debut with satisfaction and pride. “It was a great feeling to be handed my first start and I felt a little nervous”, said the midfielder. “I was told on Saturday that I would play and I was obviously happy to make my debut. I had been looking forward to it for a long time. We produced a fine team performance and I had two assists in the 5-1 win. I felt great when I went into the dressing room, until I was ‘invited’ to sing a song”, said Jansen, smiling brightly.
