Will Fran Sol stay in Tilburg, was a frequently asked question in the final week of the summer transfer window. The Willem II fans are pleased with an affirmative answer and are looking forward to the Spanish top goal scorer’s performance against PSV in the Philips Stadion on Saturday night.
Fran Sol started the season in bright fashion, scoring three goals for Willem II. Adrie Koster is in charge as head coach of Willem II this season. He fills the void left by the departure of Reinier Robbemond, who was appointed assistant-coach to Mark van Bommel in Eindhoven. Robbemond capped his debut as caretaker manager of Willem II last season with a resounding 5-0 victory over PSV.
Willem II have been fairly active in the summer transfer window, bolstering their squad with the signings of Vurnon Anita, on loan from Leeds United, and Donis Avdijaj, Aras Özbiliz and Dan Crowley. All players once plied their trade in the Dutch Eredivisie.
32-game unbeaten run
The Philips Stadion is becoming an impenetrable fortress: PSV’s current unbeaten streak in Eindhoven is at 32 league games, running out winners 28 times. PSV have a good track record against Willem II, taking maximum points in their last fifteen encounters.
