Mohamed Ihattaren does does not a choice to be interlandloopbaan. The only seventeen-year-old midfielder of PSV eindhoven, who have to choose between the Dutch and the Moroccan national team for the next period of time, first spend as much time as possible to spend with his ailing father.
“I’m not going to make that choice, as long as my father was. During the interlandperiodes, I have a few days off and I will be happy to spend it with him. I think that’s it for now, the most important thing. Family is my number one. I don’t want to be sorry afterwards,” said Ihattaren on Sunday after the best in your own home against Ajax (1-1).
The midfielder is being sought after by both the Dutch and the Moroccan football federation. He was so far out, almost all represented the youth teams of Oranje, but because the national football team are not binding, it may even be putting in an appearance for France.

“When you’re playing against Ajax, if you want to be the best’
Ihattaren was one of the more brilliant by the side of the pitch against Ajax. He works with a beautiful, individual actions, and words, and it was a few times close to score a goal, but his long shots were either saved by goalkeeper Andre Onana’s either blocked by the defenders of the Box.
“If I have to make myself speak, it was to the top. It was my first hit, and I have a good play. I’m proud of that. The only shame about the result,” said Ihattaren, Ajax midway through the second half with the lead and saw out of Quincy Promes and drukzetten has played an important role in the late in the second half of Donyell Malen.
“I wasn’t really nervous, just maybe a little excitement. I was very much looking forward to it! If you’re playing against Ajax, as I have in the past often have done so in the younger generation, sometimes you just want to be the best. I tried it today, and I think that’s pretty good going.”
Ihattaren, it was the beginning of the season, coach Mark van Bommel is designed specifically as a winger, but then the last couple of weeks as a no. 10. He has to be there temporarily, most of the performance he gave on Thursday against Sporting CP have to be a perfect assist, but do not have a preference for either of the two positions.
“It does not matter to me. Anyone in the us to be at the forefront, Bruma, Bergwijn, over and over, I have a lot of technology. It does not matter from where you are right now. I loved the way you have the independence to do what I want with it. That’s a plus. If you are drawn in by the trainer, and then you’re just standing there. Then the age doesn’t matter.”
