Ronald Koeman will decide on Saturday whether he will call up Phillip Cocu and Jason Culina to face sc Heerenveen on Sunday afternoon. Patrick Kluivert will resume individual training next Monday and PSV will attempt to keep Jefferson Farfán in Eindhoven. Patrick KluivertJefferson Farfán is still struggling with the effects of the severe concussion he sustained during the Feyenoord game. Peru will play an international game, but PSV attempt to persuade the Peruvian Football Association to give up on asking Farfán to make the long trip. The striker has not been back on the training pitch yet. He complains of headaches, but is recovering. Culina and Cocu had a week of solid training and may be called up to face sc Heerenveen. Patrick Kluivert will resume individual training next Monday. "I won't be setting a time limit, but he will be back after he has completed his rehabilitation programme, just like last time. I don’t think we have done anything wrong then", Koeman at the weekly media briefing at De Herdgang. Koeman looks back at the first part of the current campaign with feelings of contentment. "We mustn’t grumble, as we have pulled off good results. We missed four, five key players who are of added value to the team. We could have done better, but there are plenty of positives to take from the previous games. Newcomers, the likes of Mendez and Salcido, have quickly adapted and we'll certainly make progress when we have a full squad to pick from", said Koeman. The PSV head coach was asked where there is room for improvement. "We are sometimes dispossessed, while we have an extra player in midfield that is waiting for the ball. When we took on ADO Den Haag last Saturday, some players were slightly casual and we must make sure our concentration will be spot on."After the weekend several players will be on international duty. PSV will be next in action on Sunday afternoon 15 October, when they entertain Roda JC.
