Speaking after the game in Tilburg, PSV striker Luuk de Jong told the media PSV should be ashamed after losing 5-0 at Willem II, their heaviest defeat since 1964. “This defeat really hurts”, he admitted
‘Outclassed in every department’
“The question is, what happed to PSV? We were outclassed by Willem II in every department and never got into the game. We suffered an embarrassing defeat.” PSV’s vice-captain thought it was all about mentality, character and team spirit. “We can only blame ourselves. Willem II were ready to give their all and we were evidently not. We were very poor today. This defeat really hurts. “
PSV head coach Phillip Cocu was also extremely disappointed with the heavy defeat. “We feel embarrassed and ashamed. We were punched five times and never ever met expectations. We were definitely very poor today and put on an unacceptable below-par display. We must be ashamed by our display and once again thinking of winning the title is not relevant at all”, Cocu concluded.
