The Dutch defender immediately conquered everyone in the grenade: the scoreboard of the first part of the season
With the break for the national teams, it’s time to analyze Torino’s start to the season, and draw conclusions on what the players have done. One of the players who has convinced everyone in this first part of the championship is definitely Perr Schuurs. The 1999-born was bought for 9 million euros by Ajax in the summer, a lot was expected of him and expectations were not disappointed. The number 3 grenade has been able to inherit Bremer’s place in the best possible way, and at the moment it can only be considered a correct investment. A series of convincing performances, combined with good technique, made him the undisputed leader of the defence, despite the shoulder injury he sustained against Sampdoria.
Schuurs, start of the season as a protagonist
A total of 11 appearances for Schuurs so far, between the championship and the Italian Cup, including the one in the cup seasoned with the beautiful goal at the Cittadella. Only two yellow cards received, against Lecce and Milan at home. On his debut in the grenade shirt, against Cremonese, he had acted as a right-hand man in the three-man defence, with Buongiorno as a centre-back. Ivan Juric, however, had said he saw him much better as centraland indeed as the days go by that place became his. He has always shown to be attentive, both in the defensive and offensive phases, as we have often seen him bring the ball and chain up the team. He marked all the attackers he faced very well, often winning even aerial duels.
