Nick Viergever in duel with Steven Berghuis
“Oh, no john, of course not,” says Viergever. “That is nonsense. You know that you are not 34 times is going to win. Friday at Excelsior, we must prove that we are strong and far enough for us to revancheren.”
What Viergever more below, was the way in which PSV in the first half, presented in Rotterdam. Right at the moment the team of trainer Mark van Bommel is somewhat seemed to recover from a hopeless early stages, beat Feyenoord via Nicolai Jørgensen and Sam Larsson hard. First via a counter, and then after losing possession of PSV’s captain, Luuk de Jong, who was afgetroefd by Jeremiah St. Juste. Typical for the difference between both teams in that first 45 minutes.
“It’s all about the view, how you play and you have such a match,” says Viergever. “There we have it in the first half and that is what we ourselves can be blamed for. We worry the most that we ourselves were not. Duels to win, tactically, that is normally our strength. Now this was not the case. We helped Feyenoord in their power.”
