Van Halste said on Ziggo Sport: "You have guys with better kicking technique, let's put it this way.
Van Halste continued: "You know what I also miss a bit: I don't see Frenkie de Jong saying: 'No bull***t, I'll just take that penalty'. Just now, today, I sometimes have the idea with Frenkie de Jong: so neat ... If he should be a central defender, then he should go be a central defender. Then I would have said, 'Penalty? I'll take it'. Then you also take a step higher on that ladder.
"He can play football so well...
"As a personality you could also start by claiming a penalty. 'I was here for eighty million, I take the responsibility. Out of the way, I'm going to do it now'. I also think he should claim that. You can say, 'It's not in his character'. But that is part of being a top European player that you strive for."
