De Jong: ‘If you could have read my mind’

De Jong looks forward to clash with Ajax   
PSV were two goals down on 61 minutes, when Wout Weghorst doubled the hosts’ lead with a header. But after Gastón Pereiro had reduced the deficit in the 74th minute, PSV scored two goals in the space of five minutes to make it 3-2. ”If you could have read my mind after we were 2-0 down….. We looked well and truly beaten but showed resilience to stage a fightback. We will host Ajax next week and I am very much looking forward to the clash. The atmosphere in the stadium will be electrifying.”

‘Great team display’    
PSV head coach Phillip Cocu hailed the impact of striker Luuk de Jong after he had inspired his side to a 3-2 victory in Alkmaar. “He is always there, in good and bad times”, said Cocu, who also applauded a great team display. “We have taken a big step towards the title. We have not won anything yet but tonight there is reason to celebrate. We succeeded in sealing a stunning comeback. We put in a great team display and target another victory next week.”
