Johann Vogel is ruled out for the Roda JC encounter, as the midfielder is troubled by a groin injury."It's a good thing for him that the winter break is due to begin", explained PSV manager Guus Hiddink, who added that negotiations to extend the contract of the Swiss international will be held during the winter break. Csaba Fehér has not been called up for the eighteen-man squad, either. He is still troubled by an elbow problem. Ibrahim Afellay has made a surprise return to the squad, though. During the customary pre-match press briefing, where the main topic was obviously the Champions League draw, journalists were curious to find out if the youngster will start. "He has recovered well from his injury", said Guus Hiddink, "and he is able to play at this level. We shouldn’t be too cautious and may very well field him."Now that Vogel is not available, ‘the best midfield of the Dutch top flight’, Cocu, Van Bommel and Vogel, is going to be dismantled. "But we might also start with Park in midfield", admitted Hiddink, when asked by journalists.PSV- Roda JC will be kicked off in the Eindhoven Philips Stadium on Saturday night at 19, 30 hrs. local time. After the match the player will enjoy a Christmas holiday.
