Cocu

According to trainer Cocu played the game a week ago against Heerenveen at PSV in the duel with Heracles.

“I said it last week already: the match against Heerenveen made for the belief that it again could. We won with a bit of luck, though we had ultimately a chance at a third goal”, was referring to the coach on a chance of Siem de Jong just before time.

Cocu was particularly pleased with the game of PSV after rest. “In the second half we were a lot better and much more dangerous. Heracles was actually not to opportunities. We loved the feeling that we could win, even after the 1-1.”

The 46-year-old citizen of eindhoven was under the impression of Heracles. “We wanted to not let them play football, but they played with a lot of guts and courage. We were especially for rest sloppy and Heracles played partly for this reason, a great first half.”

Despite the victory, PSV is still the number three of the Premier league. Next week is the defending champion in the Premier league on a visit to AZ Alkmaar.
