PSV coach cannot resist sneering at Vertessen after departure

Ultimately, it took a lot of effort, but on Thursday Yorbe Vertessen still received the transfer he had set his sights on this winter. The 23-year-old attacker still signed with Union Berlin after a soap opera that dragged on much longer than it should have.

Last week, all parties had actually already reached an agreement on the transfer. Vertessen had therefore traveled to Berlin over the weekend to undergo a medical examination and sign his name. Everything was ready, but suddenly PSV refused to release our compatriot.

PSV not happy with Vertessen’s attitude

After all, they had been told that Noa Lang would be out of action for a long time again and so PSV only wanted to let Vertessen leave if it could bring in an extra attacker. Much to the frustration of the Vertessen camp, which also publicly expressed its dissatisfaction. There even seemed to be a threat of legal action, because the agreements with PSV were in black and white and Vertessen had already fulfilled his side of the deal by staying for the matches against Feyenoord and Almere.

PSV received a lot of criticism for the way they handled Vertessen’s case, but in Eindhoven they did not like the attitude of the former Young Devil’s entourage. “It was very logical that he had to wait a while in Berlin. If we had wanted to bring him back, that would have been possible,” trainer Peter Bosz couldn’t resist a sneer on Friday.

Promise kept

But in the end the deal was finalized. PSV did not find a replacement because it did not reach an agreement with Excelsior about the arrival of Couhaib Driouech, but the club ultimately decided to release Vertessen.

“I gave Yorbe permission to go to Union. Then you have to keep your promise,” Bosz judged. Vertessen can therefore try to earn a starting place in the Bundesliga, which he never actually succeeded at PSV.
