The 19-year-old inhabitant of Rotterdam may, by right, a child of the club call. Bijlow began as a boy in the amateurtak of Feyenoord.

“There were too many boys for one team and when we have a private team is set up, the F6. After half a year, I was asked for the Feyenoord youth academy.”

Bijlow ranks as the third keeper in the selection, but if in the first league game of the season debut because Kenneth Vermeer (hand) and Brad Jones (back) are injured.

“This morning I heard that I had to stand. My family, I’ve consciously but nothing told, otherwise it was all as a wildfire went about. And I wanted to focus.”

The jeugdinternational this summer not for a moment considered to be rent out to another club to gain experience.

“It is not good for Kenneth and Brad, but on this chance I was waiting for. And we deal with Feyenoord for the Champions League. There’s only one thing to happen and I’m in it, so strange it can go in football.”
