Who was Cocu's first Derby County league game against?

Ikechi Anya

Anya has had a rather fractured career at Derby since he joined, and has failed to reach 50 appearances since joining the club back in 2016. The winger come full-back, has played his part at times especially in the play-off campaign when the Rams lost out to Fulham in the semi-finals.

However, his contract is up at the end of the season and it is not looking likely that he’s going to be given a new one. Derby can use his wage on bringing new players to the club, as well as the slot void helping more youth products come through and get a chance in the first-team.

Florian Jozefzoon

This is a really interesting one, and a transfer that just hasn’t worked out since his move from Brentford. He has potential, but has no consistency and it appears Cocu doesn’t seem keen on the winger, considering he’s picked up more cards than goal contributions this season, it’s no surprise.

Jozefzoon has made just 11 appearances in the Championship throughout this current campaign, and at 29-years-old it would be wise for both the player and the club that he departs in the summer transfer window.

It would again be a move that would help the youngsters in the club, and give them a boost in getting into the squad.

Chris Martin

Martin has had a good season for his standards and has seemingly returned from a tough time away from the club on various loans with a new sense of vigour.

He’s now a keen selection for Cocu, especially off the bench, but Martin’s contract is coming to an end after this current season is finished, and that could well see him leave the club.

It’ll be interesting to see what comes of it, and with nine league goals and six assists he would certainly be a player a number of clubs could do with snapping up on a free.

With no contract looking imminent, it looks as though Martin will be leaving Derby.
