Tottenham Hotspur forward Vincent Janssen has told the Dutch media appoint he’s happy with the appointment of Fred Grim as Netherlands new assistant coach. Grim was installed as Danny Blind’s No.2 following the departures of Dick Advocaat, Marco van Basten and Ruud Gullit
Voetbal Primeur have reported on comments Janssen made in the lead up to the Netherlands’ upcoming World Cup Qualifiers when he was asked about Grim coming in.
The Tottenham star said during his time at Almere City and with the Netherlands youth team he enjoyed working with Grim. Janssen believes he is a good coach who will help the national team in the long run because of the way he works.
“I’ve really enjoyed working with him at Almere City and national junior team. I think he’s a good coach. We understand each other and have a good relationship. It seems to me good for the group that the staff are more ‘around’ us,” said Janssen.
Janssen joined Tottenham in the summer from AZ, and although he’s shown promise he’s so far not been prolific. The 22-year-old will be hoping to find his scoring touch when the Netherlands meet France and Belarus in the race for Russia 2018.
