Dutch-born Ghanaian defender Derrick Luckassen has revealed he takes extra-time to rehearse free-kicks after AZ Alkmaar training sessions.
The 19-year-old central defender was crowned best player of the match after scoring in AZ Alkmaar's 3-1 triumph over ADO Den Haag in the Dutch top-flight league on Saturday.
“After the training exercise Gudelj and I often on free kicks. Friday I have done that with him, Steven Berghuis and Aron Jóhannsson. When it went it there, it was so pretty,” the Amsterdam-born said.
Luckassen is in the media for good reasons this time around as the news was bad for him two weeks ago after he scored an own-goal against Feyenoord – a contrast which leaves the youngster in a bitter-sweet state.
“It's lot easier to talk to the press now than two weeks,” he said.
