Liverpool's Dutch midfielder Boudewijn Zenden has tried to warn the Reds about their opponents tomorrow night in the Champions league. Bolo started his career with PSV Eindhoven before leaving for Barcelona in 1998 and still keeps an eye on them to this day. It's not going to be easy against Jan Kromkamp's new club says Zenden.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Zenden said: "They have a lot of dangerous players, although one of their best strikers, Vennegoor of Hesselink recently left to join Celtic. The striker Kone, who is an Ivory Coast international, is a good player. Boffen is also among their better players, and perhaps Phillip Cocu is best known. He's probably their most experienced player. The Brazilians, goalkeeper Gomez and defender Alex are also impressive."
PSV are Dutch champions two seasons running, and Bolo says that they're no pushover in Europe either: "They have a good side and they've dominated the Dutch league for the past four years and always seem to perform in Europe."
After spending his formative years at PSV, Zenden is really hoping to get a game tomorrow night: "I'm really looking forward to this game because I spent eight years at PSV, four in the youth team and four in the senior side. I know everyone there, but it's nine years since I left the club and I've never really had a proper chance to play there again. I've played in the stadium with the national team, but never against PSV."
There'll be no worries about a lack of respect towards the opposition if Zenden does play tomorrow night then.
