"The Saints" signed Joël Veltman today. The 22 year old Dutch defender of
Ajax is going to join Southampton. Southampton bought him for 4.2 million
euro's (5 million pounds) and Southampton payes "De Godenzonen"3 million
euro's (2.1 million pounds) extra if he has played 20 matches. The defender from Ijmuiden played with the Dutch national team in Brazil. Dutch manager Louis van Gaal chose one time for Veltman.
I'm going to choose for a Frank de Boer/Johan Cruijff philosophy. Frank de Boer introduced it at Ajax and they won te Eredivisie 4 times in a row. It's a little bit like Tiki-Taka but it's more slow. I'm first going to play with this tactic and if it doesn't work I'm going for the Dutch tactic they used in Brazil last year
