In his capacity as PSV head coach Guus Hiddink admitted at his very last press conference that he was disappointed that his side had not won the double. Danny Blind announced he was very glad having won the Dutch Cup. "I think that is quite obvious", added the Ajax coach. "I am delighted with the win"Straight after the game rumour had it that Cup winners Ajax had already announced the successor of coach Blind. The coach himself was not willing to comment on this rumour; he said he was delighted with the Cup win and he had also seen how Ajax had again grabbed a winning goal in the final minute of added time. "We decided the game in the final stages and we have been able to do so on many previous occasions”, he said. "It was an open game. I am delighted with the win, but that’s quite obvious." Open gameGuus Hiddink thought PSV were the better side during the first period. "The game was evenly contested, but we were the more threatening side. The game sprang into life after the break. There were sharp clashes and we were soon trailing when we defended too casually", explained Hiddink. "We soon leveled the score and when two players had been dismissed, it was an open game with acres of space. We had omitted to take the lead, when all the players were still on the pitch. Ajax scored the winning goal at the death, which is characteristic for the way they have been performing the past few weeks. This final could have been the icing on the cake for us. We were very anxious to win the double. But unfortunately we must now also learn how to accept defeat."
