From the bank saw Kuijt that his teammates are less sharp than usual. “We as a team failed. That is a pity. With the clubs still in the tournament sit, once again we had for the bekerwinst can go.”
“We have this season to show that we are a real unit,” says the captain. “But vanaag was five percent less. Then you get goals scored against you all season, not against.”
