Ismail Aissati, Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Alexander Hleb, Stefan Effenberg, Frank de Boer, Giovanni van Bronckhorst, André Ooijer, Ivan de la Peña, Clarence Seedorf, Marc Degryse, Tim de Cler, Markus Babbel and Rafael van der Vaart have at least one thing in common: they once competed in the Otten Cup tournament as a junior player.
This afternoon the 61st edition of the Otten Cup tournament will be kicked off and some players who put in impressive displays may very well show their skills in the Dutch top flight or at the European stage in a few years. While browsing through the impressive list of players that participated in the Otten Cup tournament the previous 25 years, one cannot help noticing that many of them have developed into well-known players. PSV club archivist Peter Verhagen has done careful research for PSV Media and has completed a list of these players. And who knows, some stars of the tournament in Eindhoven will be the stars of the future. 1982-1983 Eindhoven: Mart van Duren. Sparta: René Eijer, Silvio Diliberto.
