Juninho Bacuna sought Ronald Koeman’s advice before he joined Huddersfield Town. 

The Netherlands U21 international joined the Premier League side from Groningen last month in a €2.5 million deal.

Speaking to Voetbal International, Bacuna stated that he spoke with Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman before leaving Groningen.

He said, “With trainers like Art Langeler, Erwin van de Looi and Ronald Koeman I have talked about a possible transfer, I have played a few games in the Dutch Junior Team and want more.

“Koeman told me he would keep an eye on me, so I thought their advice was very important, what Koeman said, “go to a club where you can play, which is most important, not just for the money, but for your development. Go somewhere where you can become better as a footballer. “
