Mark van Bommel was satisfied with his side’s 4-0 win over VVV-Venlo in the Philips Stadion on Saturday evening. “We got off to a slow start but once we upped a gear, we found our rhythm and created chances”, said PSV’s head coach at the post-match conference.
‘Sped up the game’
“Things did not go according to plan at first but when we sped up the game, we created a number of decent chances and were lucky VVV-Venlo failed to convert their only goalscoring opportunity.” PSV took control of the game after scoring the opening goal in which a great many players were involved, exchanging fifteen passes before the ball crossed the line. “That’s was good move”, said Van Bommel, smiling brightly. “We played between the lines into a crowded penalty area. And we did not take our foot off the pedal after the break.”
Steijn admits PSV were the better team
“PSV were the better team on the night and thoroughly deserved their victory”, conceded VVV-Venlo head coach Maurice Steijn. “We hoped PSV would not be as sharp and fresh after their midweek clash with Inter, playing their third game in seven days, but our game plan did not work out that well. We suffered defeat and we cannot say we could have possibly have avoided it”, said Steijn, complimenting PSV for another fine performance.
