Advocaat thinks that Martin Odegaard’s football talent is a gift from God!?

Vitesse beat Groningen to reach the Europa League play-off final where they will face off with Utrecht.

It was a solid season for Vitesse, who finished the league in 5th place. Not much was expected from the club this season, but they had one exceptional player in their ranks.

Martin Odegaard was considered (still is) as one of the biggest prospects in football. After much speculation, Real Madrid signed him and made him the biggest teenage earner in football.

Odegaard never really got a chance at Real as he was soon loaned-out.

After a solid season and a half at Herenveen, Odegaard went to Vitesse ahead of this season.

He has excelled this season and has scored 11 goals and made 12 assists this season.

“He is an exceptional talent!”

Given that the player is still only 20 years old, he is showing a fantastic potential for the future. He is still owned by Real Madrid, but there is a big question if Odegaard will get a chance at Real.

As mentioned earlier, Vitesse is going to play against Utrecht for the Europa League. As reported by Goal, Utrecht‘s manager, Dick Advocaat, has had some positive words for Odegaard ahead of the final match.

“He is an exceptional talent, a gift from God.

“That boy would cost €20-25 million. What are we talking about? That’s what the whole club here costs.

“Really a very nice player to watch. You think: ‘he won’t succeed’, but then he makes another move and he is free. Those are players who can decide matches for you.”

Very nice words from Advocaat, which are certainly hiding some mind games ahead of the final match.

Odegaard does seem to have made an important step up this season, but it remains to be seen where is he going to end up in the summer.

It might not be Real, but the kid has enough quality to start playing in the best leagues in Europe.
