Speaking to KickOff.com yesterday, after the presentation of the Coach of the Month award, the Dutch mentor still believes ‘Slim Cat’ can make it.
“He still has time on his side. He just needs to keep on playing well
for his club then the rest will follow. You should understand that a
national call-up comes with time. He was there before the Confederation
Cup and he could always come back,” Krol told KickOff.com.
Krol added that if Josephs continues with his good form at the club,
which has seen him keep four clean sheets in the league, then his time
will come soon.
“Josephs is one of the best keepers around and there is no doubt about
that, but what he needs to do now is keep his head down and continue to
work hard, then his hard work will reward him and his team at the end,”
the coach said.
The Bucs’ mentor then complained about the way the league games are
being played, which he said is not giving injured players time to
“It is very hard. You need at least four days to rest before you can
play the next game and monitor your players, but this is not the case
here. You play game after game and that is not good for players,” Krol
