Van Nistelrooij praises Mbappé predicts he’ll become a Real Madrid player

Ruud van Nistelrooij praises Xavi Simons and believes he belongs at Real Madrid

Ruud van Nistelrooij, former PSV coach who had Xavi Simons under his wing for a year in Eindhoven, has high praise for the young player. He believes that Simons, the Dutch international, should be playing for Real Madrid.

Simons’ Journey and Van Nistelrooij’s Opinion

Under Van Nistelrooij’s guidance, Simons became a key player for PSV before making a transfer to RB Leipzig. “I always tell Xavi that he will become a player for Real Madrid someday. But he needs to get used to that, haha,” Van Nistelrooij told Voetbal International.

Simons spent a significant part of his youth training at FC Barcelona, the arch-rival of Real Madrid. However, Van Nistelrooij believes that Simons is destined to play for Real Madrid. “I think it’s his… How do you say it? His destiny,” Van Nistelrooij said. “At the moment, Real Madrid has the world’s greatest talents. Bellingham, Rodrygo, Vinícius, Camavinga, Tchouaméni. Maybe Mbappé will join them. Xavi belongs there too.”

Potential Contribution at Real Madrid

Van Nistelrooij emphasizes that Simons has the drive, mindset, and qualities to succeed at Real Madrid. “Xavi definitely has what it takes,” he said.
