“When Noa Lang came in here, we all had the prejudice: Little man, big mouth at Ajax, chats. Does that fit in here? That was the feeling, “says Ten Voorde in the podcast of TC Tubantia. “But he is now on his way to becoming a public favorite.”
Lang already scored in his first home game against Sparta Rotterdam (2-0) and also played well against AZ (2-0). “He feels it very well and plays on the audience”, Ten Voorde sees. “He also loves to play for Vak-P. He goes like the fire brigade. I also had the feeling that he would wait a bit for balls and then start pinging, but he really works his way.”
“He already did that against FC Emmen (2-0), then he had cramps after eighty minutes. He runs after opponents and I think Erik ten Hag from Amsterdam thinks: That is a good development. Noa Lang is working there“, says Ten Voorde, who himself is a childhood friend of Ten Hag.
