‘The clubs have to decide together’ – Player admits he’s absolutely open to leaving Everton

Despite Ruud van Nistelrooy’s surprising departure from PSV Eindhoven, Everton’s loanee Jarrad Branthwaite remains fully open to the possibility of staying at the club, writes the HITC.

Following the legendary striker’s exit, PSV supporters expressed their support for Van Nistelrooy by unveiling a banner during their final day victory over AZ Alkmaar.

According to a statement from PSV, the 46-year-old departed because he felt there was insufficient support within the club to continue. However, Jarrad Branthwaite did not join those who turned against the former Manchester United player, maintaining his openness to remaining at PSV Eindhoven.

“I had very good experiences with Ruud,” Branthwaite says, via Voetbal Primeur. “He is a great coach who clearly explains his vision to his team, making it clear to everyone what is expected of them. So that is very positive

“An absolute great. That man lives and breathes football. He had so much experience.”

“That is always difficult to say as a professional football player. I am under contract with Everton, so it is their right not to want to sell me, of course,” he adds.

“I am absolutely open to staying at PSV, but the clubs have to decide together.”
