Jetro Willems had in the past year sometimes feel that he is the football physically and mentally could no longer muster. The PSV’feels, however, rejuvenated by the winter break in the Premier league.

“I had trouble with the football and everything around it. Sometimes it is just too much,” admits the 22-year-old Wilson Sunday in the television show The Table of Kees.

Last year had the full six months of the year from the stands watching with a knee injury. When he once again returned to the field, were other problems. “At the end of the season, it seemed as if I could not muster.”

“Within five minutes I was all the way on. I trained extra, but it was simply not there. At one point I thought: I can’t take it anymore. Saw you in my matches.”

Wilson had a bad first half of the season and lost even his basic under coach Phillip Cocu. That is now behind him, assures the Dutchman. “In the winter break, I doorgetraind, with what peace, and now you see it goes better and that I more energy I have.”

Last summer realized the Orange-international, therefore, that a transfer to the French AS Monaco is still too early for him. “I had the opportunity to go away, but I didn’t really feel that I was ready.”

“I am someone who is honest with themselves is: if it’s not good, is not good. Imagine: I would go away and the same half-year. Then I come as soon as possible back to the Netherlands, because that’s not possible. You have to be ready for it.”

Still connect Willems, who recently released his expiring contract extended until mid-2018, not that he within a short time, the door behind departs at PSV. “I have to prepare for the foreign competition, because I’m 22 and have six years of experience.”

“Then you have to slowly go though to prepare for greater competition, for whose ambitions there are, of course,” said Willems, who understand that it’s a big step. “If you go to England, it is twice as hard as the Premier league.”

Saturday remained Willems, with reigning champion PSV in the footsteps of a leader Feyenoord and Ajax by at home with 3-1 win of NEC.
