NAC coach Cees Lok and PSV coach Guus Hiddink were brief in their comments on the game. Hiddink announced he expects NAC to end the campaign in style. He lavished praises on Cocu for a miraculous goal. "NAC will end the campaign in style", predicted Hiddink. "They will threaten and score goals. I expect them to make a speedy recovery." The PSV head coach then extensively commented on the goal that Cocu scored seconds before the final whistle went. "It was the most beautiful goal of the entire campaign. It put the icing on the cake. He collected the ball some six, seven yards on his own end of the pitch. It was incredible that he realized on the spur of the moment what he could do and it proves he possesses amazing skills to accomplish his plan. It sums up his whole season. I don’t want to belittle the team, though, as Phillip himself is a genuine team player and therefore I can single him out for praise." Cocu produces an astonishing lob from the middle line that sailed over NAC goalkeeper Schollen into the roof of the net in the dying seconds. Drain the poisoned cup"This is really bad", felt NAC coach Cees Lok. "This was our last chance and we were so anxious to take it. We have now drained the poisoned cup and we have closed the book of the season. We will make a new start next Friday. We must make amends and see to it that we will take our chances of top-flight survival. I could analyze the game. We had thought out a few scenarios, but actually we did not consider the one we’re in right now", said Lok. Leonardo will not be available for the pay off games. The Brazilian limped off the pitch, after he had sustained a hamstring injury. Lok answered the question why Derijck should have taken the first half penalty in no-nonsense fashion. "Diba is the first one to take a penalty. Derijck fills in for him. Diba was not on the pitch, so Derijck attempted to convert from the spot, in accordance with the appointment."
