Marcos Senesi

Player profile:

  • Nationality: Argentine
  • Age: 22
  • Date of birth: 10/5/1997
  • Current Club: Feyenoord
  • Career: San Lorenzo
  • Position: central defender
  • Preferred foot: left

Marcos Senesi played a decent match and did not get into any trouble. He looked confident on the ball and managed to get a very good progressive run and finished it up with a good through pass on Sam Larsson. At times he had some problems with the height of Amadou Ciss. He did not make any big enough mistake to mention.

Rating: A2

Marcos Senesi is not ready for a better league yet, but he will most likely be ready for a better league next summer.

Orkun Kökçü

Player profile:

  • Nationality: Turkish & Dutch
  • Age: 19
  • Date of birth: 29/12/2000
  • Current Club: Feyenoord
  • Career: Groningen Youth, Feyenoord Youth
  • Position: attacking midfielder
  • Secondary position: central midfielder
  • Preferred foot: right

Showed some good off the ball movement but lacked verticality in his play. He played to many passes sideways or backwards and did not create that many chances, while the space was there. Also, Kökçü should improve on his defensive contribution. He does track back sometimes, but he is not aware in defence which leaves gaps in his position.

Rating: A2

As for Senesi, Kökçü is not ready for a better league yet but he will most likely be ready for a better league next summer.

Tyrell Malacia

Player profile:

  • Nationality: Dutch
  • Age: 20
  • Date of birth: 17/08/1999
  • Current Club: Feyenoord
  • Career: Feyenoord Youth
  • Position: left-back
  • Preferred foot: left

Relative to his previous performances, Malacia positioned himself better and it looked like he did not need to track one player in particular. He did not get into any trouble in defence and made some good overlapping runs down the wing. He showed once again that he has good attacking abilities and that he can get past his opponent with ease.

Rating: A2

I still feel like Malacia needs to improve on his positioning and I’m not sure whether he will improve on this as he gets more experienced. However, if played in the right role he could move to a better league in the future for sure.

Robert Bozenik

Player profile:

  • Nationality: Slovakian
  • Age: 20
  • Date of birth: 18/11/1999
  • Current Club: Feyenoord
  • Career: MSK Zilina
  • Position: striker
  • Preferred foot: right

This was the debut match for Bozenik at Feyenoord and it could be seen that he was quite nervous, and that he definitely wanted to prove himself. He put pressure on the defensive line when it was not needed and ran out of energy near the end of the match. He missed some big chances, but also scored one. He did well to get into scoring position.

Rating: A2

Could move to a better league in 2-3 years.

Justin Bijlow

Player profile:

  • Nationality: Dutch
  • Age: 22
  • Date of birth: 22/1/1998
  • Current Club: Feyenoord
  • Career: Feyenoord Youth
  • Position: goalkeeper
  • Preferred foot: right

I was watching Bijlow even closer this time to see if my statement about his insecureness through the air was a thing. Again, he seemed very insecure through the air and the fact that he was too late once in the beginning of the match did not help. He positioned himself well when Tekie tried to shoot from distance and is able to catch long shots very well.

Rating: A2

Needs to improve through the air but he is a good goalkeeper in general who could become a lot better in the future.
