Vitesse-captain Bryan Linssen admits that he Thursday, with his team badly played on a visit to Cossacks Boys in TOTO the KNVB-cup. The amateurs were in the eighth-finals narrowly with 1-2 records.
Early in the first half took Vitesse the lead thanks to Matus Bero, but the people from arnhem had it in the continued difficult and received any money after a rest at the end. In stoppage time drew Martin Ödegaard still for 1-2.
“You do the questions not even. I also have to ODIN’59-Heerenveen looked, so I can ask you to fill out”, said an irritated Linssen after the duel with Cossacks Boys against the reporter of FOX Sports.
“We have terribly played and these are the most horrible matches for Premier league teams. There, only one thing counts and that is to continue, but we’d prefer that the contest in the first half was already decided.”
Heerenveen had it Wednesday just like Vitesse tricky against a amateurploeg, because the Frisians claimed against Third Divisionist ODIN also late the profit.
“You know that it can not and should’
Linssen know that more is expected of Premier league clubs, but also stresses the importance of matches against motivated amateurploegen now once difficult. “You know that it can not and should happen, but that’s the hardest part,” said the attacker.
“I have Cossacks Boys for the league against Jong Vitesse play and then it seemed a completely different team. Maybe it’s something mentaals, but these are just very nasty games.”
The 28-year-old Linssen, that the cup in 2017 won with Vitesse, hopes that he and his team once again far. “There will now, however, with everything said and written and we have terrible indeed played, but ultimately we’re through and that counts. We come to the final, then we talk anymore.”
