Erik ten Hag’s side beat Brighton at Wembley to qualify for the FA Cup final against Man City in early June. Advocaat watched the goalless draw between The Seagulls and The Red Devils. And he thinks MU will need Kokcu.
“I watched Manchester United (against Brighton). He could easily have played in that game.”
Kokcu has taken his performance to the next level this season. The Dutch-Turkish international has scored 12 goals and assisted five more for Feyenoord. Man United are said to be tracking Kokcu, who is worth £40m.
Advocaat believes Kokcu’s decision to choose Türkiye is a blow to the Netherlands. He thinks the 22-year-old is better than any midfielder currently used by Ronald Koeman, including Frenkie de Jong: “He’s better than the players in midfield (now Holland).”
