Quincy Promes still has the hope that he will one day return to the Orange squad. He says so on the club channels of Spartak Moscow. There he is also asked whether he is keeping a close eye on Guus Til, currently loaned out to Feyenoord by Spartak Moscow and thus possibly a future teammate of Promes.
Promes is still suspected of being involved in a stabbing and national coach Louis van Gaal acknowledged that he would not be so quick to call up a player who is in such a situation: ,,If a player is involved in such a case, he has much more struggling to keep the focus on the game. In Russia you are far away, but in the Netherlands you are very close. I saw how Quincy played at Spartak Moscow. In 2014 he was just short of the last 23 players for the World Cup,” said Louis van Gaal at the press conference for the past international matches against Latvia and Gibraltar.
The 29-year-old Promes has not yet given up: ,,It is always difficult to get back into the Dutch national team. The coach can choose from a large selection of players. I have played fifty matches for the national team in the last seven years. If I’m in good shape and called up again, I’ll go. It’s like an added bonus. Mr Van Gaal knows my potential but I am currently focused on Spartak,” Promes said on the club’s website.
Where Promes exchanged the Eredivisie for the Russian competition last year, Guus Til took the opposite route. Til is currently rented by Feyenoord from Spartak Moscow, made his comeback with the Orange squad and scored in the international match against Turkey at the beginning of September. Whether Promes follows his compatriot? ,,No, I am not interested in Feyenoord because I belong to Ajax. If Guus plays against my team from Amsterdam, I will see him. I’m happy for him, but why couldn’t he score so much for Spartak? Either he couldn’t acclimate, or he couldn’t use his strengths well.”
