Gökhan Kardes has played since he was sixth for PSV, but it didn’t come to a breakthrough. The defender has therefore let himself be hired out to Juventus Bucharest, the shattered leader of the Romanian Eredivisie. Juventus has also negotiated an option to buy on Kardes.
Kardes is happy with his new chance, but also bale that he didn’t jump through to Phillip Cocu’s first team at PSV,”PSV is really my home. I’ve been playing there since my sixth year and I know everyone there. But if I looked at my future, it didn’t look good. I wouldn’t get the chance in the first team, I knew that myself. It was quite a difficult decision, but yet I decided to take a step and I still have no regrets.
Kardes was born twenty years ago in Beverlo and made the transition from Turkish FC from Beringen to PSV. In August 2016, in the Jupiler League match against FC Den Bosch (5-4 winnings), the leftist went through all youth teams and made his debut in professional football. He has an expiring contract with PSV, but this can be extended by an option for another year.
The full interview with Gökhan Kardes will be published on our website on Thursday.
