Denzel in an interview said it's special for him to get named after such an intelligent person.

Denzel is a mamma's boy 

According to Marleen, Denzel is a mamma's boy, and she is his confidant. 

She said there is a strong friendship between them and that he shares everything with her. 

Boris has another very different role in the house, one at least as important, she said of her husband. 

Their eldest daughter Demelza described her father to be more nurturing. 

"When mom has made sandwiches for us, you just got two slices stuck together. With my dad, you can taste the love he puts into it", she said.

Where did Denzel get the inspiration to play football?

From the very beginning, Denzel always said that he wanted to become a professional footballer. 

He said he doesn't know where the motivation came from. 

It was not that his dad was a soccer player or somebody from his family was a soccer player but he was determined to become a professional footballer and was hungry for that. 

He did everything to achieve his dream.

He then moved to Heerenven. After a season at Heerenven, he joined PSV in 2018. During his time at PSV, he also became a Dutch national team player. 

Denzel played twice for Aruba before switching to the Netherlands

Denzel was in his youth career playing for BVV Barendrecht when he got an email from the Aruban Football Association saying they wanted him to play in two friendlies with the national team. 

After getting the message, he called the Royal Netherlands Football Association asking if it was possible and if he would still be able to play for Holland

When they responded saying there was no problem, he flew to Aruba and played two friendlies. He was 17 at the time.

Growing up, he wrote "I will play for the national team" on his bedroom wall. He always had a strong conviction that he would. 

It was never a dream, but an objective; something he felt he had to achieve. 

He has always been a fan of the Dutch team and he knew that one day he would be part of it, he told
