Van Bommel talks up AC Milan's Dutch pair De Jong, Van Ginkel

Mark van Bommel has offered his opinion of AC Milan's two Dutch midfielders.

Van Bommel is a big fan of both Nigel de Jong and Marco van Ginkel.

"I really like Nigel as a player and as a person," Van Bommel told Milan Channel.

"He is very similar to me, playing for the team and not for himself.

"He is a very important player for the team and for the dressing room. There are few players like him.

"And Van Ginkel? He is a good player, at Chelsea he has not played much due to a knee injury.

"He is a young midfielder, who runs a lot, doing well in both attack and defence. He has great quality."
