PSV is a powder keg

Mino Raiola criticized coach Roger Schmidt for leaving his represented Mohamed Ihattaren out of the game against Ajax: "I'm glad he was never Maradona's coach."


Complicated situation in PSV Eindhoven. The absence against Ajax of one of the team's stars, the young Dutchman Mohamed Ihattaren due to an extra-sporting decision, has raised blisters at the Eindhoven club. And he has made the player's representative react, Mino Raiola, who has shown his anger with the club and specifically, with his coach, Roger Schmidt. To whom the super agent has addressed some harsh words.

"What happened yesterday (Sunday) is absolutely unworthy of PSV. I do not agree with that statement or with the decision (to keep him out of the squad). I think the coach has been lost when he has to justify his reasons with the players. Better to stay home if that's the case. Will you be taking your wife next week so she can tell how she feels about your decisions? I've never seen this before and it doesn't make sense. From what I've heard , the players don't even approve of it. We will discuss this with the club's management, '' Raiola said on De Telegraaf.

Raiola's anger towards the German PSV manager is quite evident: "I am glad that Schmidt was not Maradona's coach, because then we would never have seen the real Maradona."

The Ihattaren-PSV conflict exploded last Thursday when the 19-year-old midfielder did not play a minute against Olympiacos in the Europa League. Decision that set off alarms and was later explained by the coach himself: "Ihattaren did not behave as one would expect from a professional on Thursday. Little effort, little team discipline. That's why we made this decision. It was totally unacceptable. No I could give him a place. If he works as hard as Mario Gotze, Ryan Thomas, Mauro Junior, Cody Gakpo or Noni Madueke, it can still work for him. If not, it's impossible. It's up to him if he can play games again in our future. " .

PSV himself backed his coach's decision in the face of the indiscipline of the number '10' with a statement: "All the staff, the group of players and the management have done everything possible to support Ihattaren and make him valuable to PSV. No He took advantage of that opportunity. That is why PSV has decided that the 19-year-old midfielder will not be part of the first team this weekend. " PSV supported Schmidt and left Ihattaren out in the vital game against Ajax, which has caused Raiola's anger.Contract ends in 2022 and a very black future

A disagreement that coincides with the uncertainty that exists in the club about the continuity or not of Ihattaren in the squad. The promising footballer ends his contract in 2022 and today it is very difficult for Raiola to sit down to negotiate an extension of his relationship. For this reason, if PSV does not want to see Ihattaren go free in 18 months, they will have to accept a possible transfer offer this coming summer.

Ihattaren's future has always been strongly linked to that of Ajax. The player has even maintained continuous contact with Ajax footballers on social networks, which has generated continuous discomfort within the club and among PSV fans. Now, with a very dark future in the Eindhoven entity, the Amsterdam team appears again on the horizon, although it would not be the only team willing to sign it. Ihattaren has a good poster in the Premier and has several interested clubs. For this reason, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal do not lose track of him should PSV put him on the market this summer.
