The flying Dutchman has been a revelation in the reserves this season but has yet to transfer that form into the Premiership.
He started to do that in Saturday’s win at Sunderland where he has to take credit for playing his part in our second half revival.
On at half-time for Oyvind Leonhardsen, Willem was involved in our first and third goals in the 3-2 win and his probing runs gave the home side plenty to think about.
It was arguably Willem’s best display of a season that has so far seen only four Premiership starts and another five as substitute.
“There is a player in Willem waiting to come out,” insisted Glenn. “I said that when I first arrived at the club.
“He’s shown in fits and starts and now, with a new manager, he has the chance to show what he can do. He did well for us at Sunderland.”
Glenn Hoddle has handed Willem Korsten a massive boost by admitting: “I know there is a player there waiting to come out.”
