Virgil van Dijk

has praised his compatriot

Jurrien Timber

and claimed that he has a bright future ahead of him.

Timber, who had played under the direction of Eric Ten Hag in Erdoweise, was able to quickly introduce himself as one of the main pieces of


. The 20-year-old defender was under the radar of Manchester United in the summer, but he ended up staying at Ajax. Van Dijk was alongside him and Nitin Eyck in the Dutch defense in the 2-0 win over Poland and praised the Ajax star after the game.

He said:

“I wasn’t nearly as far along as he is now [at the same age]. I have nothing but praise for him. He is a great player and a true professional.

“He has so much potential. Hopefully he can develop further. Then it will be all right, I think.”

The Netherlands will face Belgium in their next match and they will hold the Low Countries derby. The Netherlands will avoid relegation if they avoid defeat in this match.
