Locadia claims that in Augsburg button is handled at PSV

Jürgen Locadia claims that PSV has learned from the failure against NK Osijek in the third qualifying round of the Europa League. The attacker of the Locals aast Sunday in the first league game against AZ on revenge.

“We play only once a week for ninety minutes. I think that you as a player and as a team, much more needs to be seen now,” says Locadia Thursday in the AD.

PSV lost both clashes with Osijek 1-0, making the club for the first time in 43 years missing in a European tournament.

To the disappointment away somewhat to be able to rinse, played PSV Sunday in Germany in a practice game against FC Augsburg. With the a large number of reserves within the lines held the team of coach Phillip Cocu, the number thirteen of the last season in the Bundesliga at 0-0.

“I found it difficult to get straight again to go abroad,” says Locadia. “Preferably, I had been home for a while not having to think about it. Suddenly came the realization: I just play no European football this season. Just like the fans, we find that terrible. There are really hard words, when we again met in Germany. Then there will be things above.”

“One of those things that a lot of guys hate, is the way we up until now the training is approached. In the period with Gini and Memmy (Wijnaldum and Depay, ed.) we had a lot of arguments and it was sometimes almost fighting. Tackles, sprints; everything on the razor’s edge. That I have missed. In Augsburg there is a button handled.”

Criticism

Locadia himself got in Osijek also the necessary criticism to endure because he, after the end of the duel in an interview with FOX Sports, said that he had difficulty to charge for the little appealing poster in the Stadium Gradski. The neo-international does not want to much more about it.

“Yes, because I’m afraid that people don’t understand me. How is it about if you think about writing? Then I get back a lot of negative reactions. On social media I don’t look even more. But I get it anyway. I just want to indicate that one or two percent less in focus can make all the difference.”

“Last season we had that problem against small clubs. I have only be honest, trying to describe how we, as a dramatic race could play. The next time it might be better to have that not more to do.”

PSV-AZ starts on Saturday at 18.30 in the Philips Stadium and is headed by referee Björn Kuipers.
