Vincent Janssen, the new Van Persie?
Vincent Janssen, after years with SV Top, FC Oss and N.E.C. moved, at 15 years old, to Rotterdam, joining the youth team of Feyenoord. During the season 2012/13 he was the youth league top scorer. After that season he moved to Almere City, a small team of the Jupiler League. In this team, under the leadership of Fred Grim, Vincent scored 31 goals in 72 games. He showed all his talent, a gifted left foot, a strong body and an incomparable (for his age) ease of play with the back to the goal. AZ easily bought him for only 400.000 Euro in the summer of 2015.
