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.”
