Feyenoord-trainer Giovanni van Bronckhorst is full of praise about the setting of his squad. The Rotterdammers made Sunday no error in the title by FC Twente in Enschede, with a 0-2 defeat.

“We have patience shown, but also fighting spirit. This team fights for every meter, and that makes us difficult to beat,” says Van Bronckhorst on the site of Feyenoord.

The leader of the Eredivisie, mainly in the first half of a tough match in Enschede, but it came fifteen minutes later the lead through Eric Botteghin.

Nicolai Jörgensen took just before time, all of the tension out of the match by 0-2 to draw. With the seventh competitiezege in a row kept Feyenoord immediate pursuers Ajax and PSV, respectively, on eight and five points behind.

Van Bronckhorst turned his compliments afterwards also on his defenders and goalkeeper Brad Jones. The Rotterdam defence kept the goal for the fourth match in a row clean.

In January it recorded Feyenoord already had a clean sheet against Roda JC (0-2), Willem II (1-0) and NEC (4-0).

“That we’re not tegendoelpunt collection gives confidence,” notes Van Bronckhorst. “The defense is solid as a rock. If you scores, the gain is already almost within. That I at this stage of the season very pleased with a victory in a tricky away game, is an understatement.”
