“Everything is a matter of self-confidence. Those guys have all the quality to a goal. That verleer you don’t. I see this really as a mental issue,” said Pusic. “Of course you can practice on finishing and the feeling of scoring again calls. That is a part thereof. But the most important element, I think it will improve the self-image. That’s what you do among other things through individual interviews and positive images to show, for example, of goals that they previously made.”

The low number of goals that the hekkensluiter in the Premier league, is a major handicap of FC Twente in the exciting degradatiestrijd. Since the winter break, knew the tukkers in the Premier league only eight times in scoring, while the competitors, Sparta and Roda JC thirteen inlegden. An important part of the Twente production was also in the name of Haris Vuckic (three goals), who now is no longer available due to a heavy kruisbandblessure.

A windfall for Pusic tomorrow afternoon against Feyenoord is the comeback of Assaidi, who is still clubtopscorer with six goals. Assaidi had last week due to his knee problems the away game against VVV-Venlo to pass.
