FC Twente starts Sunday (14.30 hours) battered to the crucial away game against Vitesse.

Tom Boere

The beleaguered team has a lot of doubt in the forefront. Tom Boer is struggling with liesklachten, Adnane Tighadouini and Luciano Slagveer have an ankle injury, and Fredrik Jensen a bruise. Of that quartet, there can be at most two to be prepared for the duel in Arnhem.

Oussama Assaidi played the past few weeks with painkillers to reduce the pain in his knee to a mute, but now has a week and a half quiet to be able to do. He is so versatile. Mounir El Hamdaoui is after a period of injuries, again pain-free, but it lacks wedstrijdritme for a very long time to be able to play.

“That is of course very bad, but it is not for the first time this season that the us has not meegezeten”, sighs trainer Marino Pusic. Defender Thomas Lam is also suspended. Cristian Cuevas is operational again, the fullback returns just back from a suspension.

Degradation for FC Twente tomorrow is a fact when there is lost to Vitesse. At a victory, is the team depending on the result of Sparta at stadgenoot Feyenoord, not with his strongest team will take office.

“Everyone must themselves know whether they are the sporty duty to fulfill,” says Pusic about it. “I’m going to assume that every sportsman has the intention to win a race. I will not at all to other teams watching. What I and my team hold up in front of, is that we are in this situation yourself the maximum pressure to perform. I must not think that the results on the other fields in our favor would fail, but we ourselves are not true.”
