The 21-year-old Hendrix, who by his injury is not eligible for a place in the Oranje selection for the world cup qualifiers against belarus and France, frustrated “greatly” from the setback.

“I don’t need no one to explain how annoying this is. A footballer wants to play football and not recovery. Unfortunately for me there is now nothing else than to work hard to become even stronger to come back.”

Penalty

Cocu also looked back at yet another missed penalty from his team. Against Rostov failed, Davy Pröpper from eleven metres, the fourth miss in a row this season.

“We should be perhaps less going to talk about penalties. We should have no fear and take a penalty just see it as a chance to score.”

Cocu is not necessary to have external help for the penaltysyndroom. “We would have a room to fill up with all the invitations we’ve had from mental coaches. That we are not going to do.”
