PSV’s eight-day training camp does not go unnoticed. Phillip Cocu and his squad have been the centre of interest for local and international media. Univision, Telemundo, ESPN, beIN Sports, FIFA Football, Claro Sports and Copa90 have sent TV crews to Orlando as PSV have opened the doors to view the training sessions.
Media representatives were invited to come to the players’ hotel on Thursday evening to speak to the players individually in an informal setting. Dutch national daily newspapers, the local newspaper and a weekly football magazine bring their readers the latest news and the going-ons behind the scenes. They spoke extensively with PSV head coach Phillip Cocu and the players.
Former prolific World Cup striker and FC Barcelona legend Hristo Stoichkov boarded a plane in Miami to interview Phillip Cocu for Univision Deportes, a Spanish language sports channel dedicated almost entirely to football events and football-related programming. Both the Bulgarian star and Cocu wore the bluagrana No 8 shirt.
