After he had already found the back of the net with a header against PEC Zwolle earlier this season, Donyell Malen wrapped up a 3-1 win for PSV against ADO Den Haag on Easter Sunday. “I was happy to steer in a looping header”, said Donyell Malen, smiling brightly in his post-match interview.
‘Luuk and I link up well together’
“Luuk de Jong and I link up well together and we were glad to have scored a header each in the 3- victory.” Donyell Malen rose above his marker and sent a high looping header over ADO Den Haag keeper Robert Zwinkels.”We practise a lot in training. It was a fine cross and it is great to see that all the hard work eventually pays off.”
’A mighty left foot’
The home crowd went wild in the 20th minute when right back Denzel Dumfries opened the scoring with a fierce left-footed strike into the top corner. “I have a mighty left foot and thought why not have a go? It was a great moment.” Luuk de Jong doubled PSV’s lead with a header. “He does not stand a chance when I mark him in training”, said Dumfries jokingly. “Luuk de Jong is so good in the air and regularly outjumps his man. I sometimes ask him if he never has a head ache. He is an extraordinary great header of the ball, which is an exceptional quality.”
