While PSV Eindhoven did not hide its desire to keep its young player, Xavi Simons said he was nostalgic for Parisian life.
Landed last summer at PSV Eindhoven after chomping at the bit at PSG for three years, Xavi Simons has taken on a new dimension since his return to his native country. Author of 13 goals and 6 assists in his new colors, the Dutch international was also called up by Louis van Gaal for the World Cup in Qatar.
The player trained at Barça therefore seems to have made the right choice by joining PSV. He is no less nostalgic for Paris. ” I miss france. The city of Paris is incredible, it really is a metropolis. I also miss it a bit because Eindhoven is much quieter”he thus entrusted to the microphone of the chain NOS.
Good news for PSG as PSV coach Ruud van Nistelrooy recently claimed that the Dutch club hoped to extend and thus keep their young player. “We are in talks to extend Xavi Simons’ contract, we see him as a key player in building PSV for the future,” he explained, appearing not to take into account the buyout clause enjoyed by PSG.
