Feyenoord drew 1-1 with Dinamo Tbilisi in Georgia on Thursday night. That means Jaap Stam’s men have secured their place ...
The 3-0 scoreline in no way flattered the hosts on Thursday night as Feyenoord dominated proceedings against sc Heerenveen. Head coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst was certainly satisfied with his team’s performance. ‘This is how I want to se it.’
‘Everything pointed to us having to win this game,’ said the head coach post-match. ‘That was reflected in our performance. I felt we were really sharp today and when we went 2-0 up the confidence in the team only increased. It’s a shame about the disallowed goals, but you have to accept those decisions. In any case, we were the deserving winners today.’
Steven Berghuis was one of Feyenoord top performers, showing that the situation earlier in the week has been put to bed. ‘Steven let his feet do the talking and I’m happy for him. He was very important to the team.’
Van Bronckhorst also had a word to say about the crowd, which was lower than usual, due among other things to the punishment against section S. ‘We have to ensure that people come back to the stadium and we can only do that by performing,’ said the coach. ‘There are still six important matches to come and I expect it to be different then.’
