Athletic information

 

Koen started playing soccer at the local club OFC in Oostzaan, where he always played in the highest junior teams. At the age of 11 he was noticed by the KNVB (Dutch national soccer alliance) and was invited to train with the best talents of other regions for a couple months. A year later professional club Ajax Amsterdam contacted him that they were reviewing him.  He decided to stay at OFC but transferred to Hercules Zaandam in 2016/2017 season. At Hercules, he plays in the highest junior team U19.

Koen is an intelligent (attacking) midfielder with excellent technique, great passing and dribbling. He likes to think offensively, without neglecting his defensive tasks. He provides the attack with many assists and scores occasionally. Koen is a hard worker and is mentally very strong.

Koen has played his whole life with striker Sander van der Sluijs, who is also looking to go to the USA in the fall of 2018. Because of their long history, the two can find each other easily on the field.
