Biseswar Back In the Picture

Talented Feyenoord youngster Diego Biseswar was the man of the match in Feyenoord’s 5-0 win against Volendam, prompting boss Gertjan Verbeek has decided to give the attacker a fresh chance.
Biseswar was one of the players who were told that they were no longer needed by the Rotterdam side last summer. However, the winger stayed at Feyenoord, despite undertaking a trial period with English side Sheffield United.

Biseswar made his debut for Feyenoord during the 2004/2005 season and was regarded as a hot prospect for the future. Nevertheless, his development stagnated and Feyenoord farmed him out on loan to Heracles and De Graafschap to gain experience.

Despite being surplus to requirements, the 20-year-old made a good impression during pre-season and the early league matches. Therefore, manager Gertjan Verbeek has opted to give him another chance.

“Diego is always happy and he’s an uncomplicated person,” said Verbeek. “He has his pros and cons, but his intuitive style of play can be a serious threat to any defence. That’s what he has shown so far.

“I’m happy with the fact that the manager has trust in me,” reacted Biseswar via Algemeen Dagblad. “I’m not looking back anymore and I want to grab the chances I get. I need to keep improving in order to develop into a first team regular.”
