=================================================

PSV EINDHOVEN are one of the most successful sides in the proud history of professional football in Holland.

Philips Sport Vereniging (Philips Sports Union), who started out as the employees’ team for Gerard Philips’ electronics company in 1913, have won the Dutch Eredivisie championship 21 times and have captured the KNVB Cup on eight occasions, as well.

PSV Eindhoven, who defeated Portuguese powerhouse Benfica Lisbon on penalty kicks after a goalless draw in the 1988 Final, are one of three Dutch clubs to have won the prestigous European Cup of Champions, which is now, of course, the UEFA Champions League.

PSV Eindhoven also won the old UEFA Cup at the conclusion of the 1977-78 season.

This year, PSV Eindhoven has made a clear effort to reduce the average age of the playing staff under the direction of manager FRED RUTTEN — seven players 28 or older have moved on in the off-season while six of the nine new players for the 2010-11 campaign are 23 or younger.

PSV sold 30-year-old Mexico World Cup defender CARLOS SALCIDO, who played every minute for his country in South Africa this summer, to English Premier League club Fulham Athletic for a reported 1.6 million English pounds while 36-year-old Holland World Cup defender ANDRE OOIJER, who has since signed for Ajax Amsterdam, was released outright.

Highly experienced, 33-year-old Belgium international midfielder TIMMY SIMONS (74 caps, 3 goals) has departed for German Bundesliga side 1.FC Nuremberg.

==============================================

Sweden international striker MARCUS BERG has returned to the Dutch Eredivisie on loan for the season to PSV Eindhoven from German club SV Hamburg; the 24-year-old scored 32 goals in 56 league games for FC Groningen over two seasons before netting just four goals in 31 Bundesliga games last year for Hamburg.

PSV Eindhoven’s top league scorer returns in Hungary international striker BALAZS DZSUDZSAK, who scored a career-high 14 goals in 32 Eredivisie matches a year ago. The 23-year-old, now in his fourth year in Holland, is off that pace with just one goal in his first seven league games so far this season. Dzsudzsak does, however, have four goals in the UEFA Europa League for PSV this term.

Sweden international attacker OLA TOIVONEN, who finished second on PSV last season with 13 goals in 33 league games, also returns; the 24-year-old is midfielder / striker is off to a torrid start this year in the Dutch league with seven goals his first six Eredivise games for the Boeren.
