Feyenoord was booked Sunday with a creditable 1-1-draw in the top match against PSV, but captain Rajiv van la parra of the city’s inhabitants was not entirely satisfied. The midfielder thinks his team could win in the Philips Stadium.
“Pre-sign you might have a point, and we had the race to lose, but in the first half, we ourselves forget to reward. That is a shame,” said the 27-year-old van la parra after the topper in Eindhoven against FOX Sports.
Feyenoord came a quarter of an hour after the rest with ten men after a red card for Sven van Beek, but the Rotterdammers got twenty minutes before time thanks to Nicolai Jörgensen or the lead. PSV made soon after right through Hirving Lozano and brought the pressure in the final, but the winning hit was found.
Van la parra is pleased to see Feyenoord with the good game in the first half special for the 1-0 defeat last week at FC Groningen, but the midfielder frustrated from the volatility of his team. Feyenoord won in 2019 with a 6-2 Ajax and 4-0 of The County, but also lost of PEC Zwolle (3-1), Excelsior (2-1) and Groningen.
“With that vicissitude you put yourself a bit to see”, says van la parra. “Often, We have to show that we can, but in most cases it is not. That is very regrettable and very unfortunate. These are the matches (a topper, eds.) we understand, however, show. We were there as a team.”

Luuk de Jong is a tie against Feyenoord go
PSV-captain Luuk de Jong was annoyed, of course, the loss of points of his team, but the striker also recognised that the Locals, especially in the first half, simply not good enough.
“We wanted the pressure, but Wigan came eronderuit and we were often late. That made it very hard for us in the first half”, said De Jong, who was fed up of the still in strong position after the red card of Van Beek in the second half.
“After resting it went better with us, but you may against ten man no goal against. We were quickly on 1-1 and had enough opportunities to win the match, but the ball just fell not good. The 1-1 is ultimately justified.”
By the draw against Wigan is a leader PSV eindhoven are only two points for closest enemy Ajax, that earlier on Sunday with 1-5 won by ADO Den Haag. PSV continues the competition on 2 march with an away game against Excelsior.
