Even in the face of so many problems that FC Groningen has been going through this season, a good name has emerged from the base categories and the Green-and-White Army board wants to seek a contract renewal with the athlete in the coming days.
We are talking about Thijmen Blokzijl. The 18-year-old defender has a contract with the Groningers until the end of next season. He made his first team debut for FC Groningen this season under Dennis van der Ree.
Currently, Thijmen Blokzijl is an absolute starter in the defense mounted by Dennis van der Ree. He received a lot of praise from everyone, especially in the game against Feyenoord, where he was one of the main highlights of the match.
Due to his superior performance and contractual situation, Thijmen Blokzijl has received a lot of attention from the board in recent days. After this season, he has just one more year left on his contract with the Groningers. Due to his development, there is no doubt that other clubs are monitoring him.
Questioned, FC Groningen director Wouter Gudde is happy with Thijmen Blokzijl’s development.
“It’s very good what Thijmen Blokzijl does. He is a young athlete who is showing his qualities. We’ve already started talking to him and his manager about his contractual situation. We want him to stay with us for much longer” said Wouter Gudde.
