PSV head coach Phillip Cocu previewed his side’s game away from home at AZ at his weekly press briefing. “It should be a cracking game and I am looking forward to it”, he said.
“I am sure it will be an entertaining encounter as an in-form AZ side will be motivated and up for it”, said Cocu. “They have got some good results lately, so it should be a cracking game and I am looking forward to it. We are also in a good momentum and the players are keen to continue their winning streak.”
UEFA Europa League
AZ play host to FC Zenit in a UEFA Champions League round of 32 match next Thursday but Cocu does not intend to rest any player. “We take each game as it comes and the next game is always the most important. The players will give their all in Alkmaar.”
Guardado may be called up to the match squad after all
Andrés Guardado will join his team mates for the trip to Alkmaar in spite of the injury that he has picked up but is listed as ´doubtful´, ”He may be called up to the match squad after all”, explained Cocu. “ He is recovering well from his injury but we will first see if he comes through today’s training session with no problems. But he will travel with the squad to Alkmaar anyhow”, said Cocu.
