SONG NOT WHOLLY SATISFIED WITH HIS PERFORMANCE

Chong-Gug Song is back with a vengeance. After half an hour in Sunday’s win against NAC Breda, the South Korean got in a further forty-five against Vitesse Wednesday, despite being ruled out by Bert van Marwijk twenty-four hours earlier. Song was generally happy with his performance in the cup-tie, but admitted that there was room for improvement. ‘I played well, but sometimes I could do better,’ said the critical Korean.

‘Right now I’m ninety percent fit,’ confirmed Song. ‘And you have to play to get tiptop.’ The secondhalf appearance against Vitesse was therefore a real boon to Song. ‘I think the coach was hoping I’d be a bit more attack-minded than Gyan, who was rightback before the break. Actually I wanted to go forward even more than I did. But I’m glad with the win. It gives the team confidence and it also allowed us to give the fans something.’ Song has gone through a difficult period. An ankle injury kept him out of training and out of the team for a couple of months, just as Feyenoord regained the élan that marked their early season form. ‘So I’m happy that I’ve played twice now. I was a little afraid that I’d make a mistake and lose my chance of a place in the team. I’m very relieved this week.’ Song and his teammates can now look forward to a semifinal at home to Ajax. ‘At home I played and we lost to them and I didn’t play in the away fixture. So I hope to have a big role in the team. We have a great chance to progress, because this Feyenoord has achieved a very high level in footballing terms. At the moment we have a good chance of beating Ajax.’
