Phillip Cocu has Saturday night, perhaps for the first time this season, enjoyed the PSV. That said the coach after the won a duel with AZ (3-2).

He moved to the opponent in his tribute. “With two teams that are offensively wanted to play, the experience that we have shown and the fight that we have supplied you get a nice night like this. I found it to be fantastic.”

Only had PSV in the duel earlier must decide, said Cocu across FOX Sports. “That we have failed. This allowed AZ yet often threatening. But further, I am to speak about our vanguard.”

“This was a victory of the spectacle. For us it was a great start of the competition. In addition, we have passion displayed. This was what we wanted.”

Cocu was full of praise for acquisition Hirving Lozano, who for a lot of danger, and was responsible for the 1-1.

“He had himself already immortal”, was referring to the trainer on the missed opportunities of the Mexican. “You see what specific qualities he has, by his individual action, and its depth. Next time he makes those opportunities.”

Cocu exchanged defender Joshua Brenet after 31 minutes for Kenneth Pole, because Brenet did not. “There is not much to explain on that switch. Brenet played just not good. There came a lot of danger come from. For a player is such a change difficult, and as a trainer, do you prefer it not, but we had little choice.”

The 46-year-old trainer hopes that Brenet is quickly repacked. “He has now made it equally difficult. The next week we’re going to work to ensure that he is back to the old. Pole had to get used to in the beginning, but has ultimately done well.”
