07:30 Karsdorp forgets Orange: ‘I don’t even look at the list anymore’

Rick Karsdorp played three games for the Dutch national team in his career, but thinks that there will be no international matches. The right back of AS Roma is still absent in the preliminary round of the Orange squad, which will play exhibition games against Denmark and Germany this month.

,,We don’t need to talk about Orange, because I had completely forgotten about him”, said Karsdorp when the Conference League match against Vitesse started. ESPN. “I played 40-45 games last season and will probably enjoy it again this season, but I haven’t heard anything from the KNVB at all.”

The 27-year-old Karsdorp last played for the Dutch National Team on March 25, 2017 in the match they lost to Bulgaria (2-0). The former Feyenoord player also made two appearances in the 2018 World Cup qualifier which failed in October 2016.

In the summer of 2017, Karsdorp made the switch from Feyenoord to AS Roma and initially barely played due to injuries. The wing defender got a starting point last season and secured a place in the European Championship pre-selections, but national coach Frank de Boer has decided not to take him with him.

Rick Karsdorp is a regular starter at AS Roma, but is not yet eligible for the Orange squad.

Frimpong chosen by Van Gaal

Karsdorp does not stand a chance under his successor, Louis van Gaal. By choosing Denzel Dumfries as right-back, the national team manager has decided to include Bayer Leverkusen right-back Jeremie Frimpong and other fullbacks in his shortlist for friendlies later this month.

Karsdorp emphasized that it is not true that he is no longer available for the Orange and said: “At some point new players will come back. Then it is no longer necessary.” He doesn’t care anymore.

“I accepted that very easily. Honestly, I don’t even look at the list anymore. I get an app from my dad, friends or family that automatically asks if I’ve seen the list. Then I’ll check it out, but I’m not waiting for an email or anything.”

Karsdorp will probably take a key position at AS Roma in his first meeting with Vitesse on Thursday. Conference League Round of 16 Game 1 starts at 6:45 PM in GelreDome. Return in a week in Rome.
