Marco van Ginkel thinks that the hard words that PSV have fallen after the blamerende elimination by NK Osijek in the preliminary round of the Europa League, their effects have had. Against AZ (3-2) left the team on Saturday by a better side showed.

“Maybe you saw today, the will to win just a bit more than in the duels with Osijek. I felt a bit missed,” said Van Ginkel in the catacombs of the Philips Stadium.

At the training complex of PSV was the last week several talk sessions. Also Van Ginkel did as the captain complained about the very weak performance of the national team in the dual meet with Osijek.

“But I’m not necessarily worried for the match against AZ,” said the mercenary from Chelsea. “We have this week very well trained. Very bright and aggressive. We have much talked. You could see today that we are for each other by the fire went. This was a good response to the debacle in Croatia.”

Still, it went against AZ in particular, not without a hitch at PSV. The Locals even came early on the backlog, but thanks to a goal from Van Ginkel stepped up to the men of coach Phillip Cocu eventually as winners of the field.

“We knew maybe a lesser stage in the race,” acknowledged Van Ginkel. “I think we are a bit sloppy started. That had with sharpness. AZ came there a few times nice through it. But after the 0-1 we went there in earnest. The audience went there again, behind. That gave me a good feeling.”

The absolute luminary on the side of PSV was Hirving Lozano. The Mexican rookie took the 1-1 for his account, but had the duel yet for rest actually in the slot to throw.

“Hirving was sharp today,” praised Van Ginkel are used. “Maybe he had even a little more scoring. He was very threatening. That is fun for him and good for the team.”

The expectation is that Van Ginkel for the close of the transfer market on 31 August to even more players on the training ground can welcome. In particular, the back is flush with PSV thin. Van Ginkel wait what will happen in the next three weeks all going to happen.

“I’m not a technical director. There is indicated that there are still some added. We will see. I am not too worried about that.”
