“This feels good. I am tired but satisfied,” said van Ginkel after the end for the camera of FOX Sports. The 24-year-old midfielder, who, like last year for a half year rental of the London football club, felt that there was in the first game of PSV in 2017 a lot of press was after the poor first half of the season.

“The whole team felt that performance had to be and that we have done, all that pressure for me not so much. I always give 100 percent and if you scores and with 2-0 wins, of course, that is awesome.”

It was striking that Van Ginkel immediately good meedraaide at PSV that midfielder Bart Ramselaar as winger began. “There are only two, three new players and the staff is the same. I could therefore adjust quickly,” said Van Ginkel.

Following In the footsteps of Van Ginkel was also a trainer Phillip Cocu satisfied. “The outcome was higher, but the way we played was excellent”, said Cocu, who especially Andres Guardado in a positive sense took notice.

“He took the team really is in tow and made a crisp and fresh impression. I picked him in the second half to the side to not risk more with him, but also to Jorrit Hendrix his comeback award after long injuries.”

The 30-year-old Guardado was in the last game before the winter break against Ajax (1-1) all his comeback, but when he played, according to Cocu is still not as strong as against Excelsior. “That is also logical, because Andres has now the whole preparation for the race. If he is fit, is he only better.”
