Galatasaray Erik Gerets conducted a press conference in the Olympic Stadium after the final training session, ahead of tomorrow night’s clash. The Belgian, who served PSV as both a player (1985-92) and coach (1999-2002), said it would be an emotional encounter, but also emphasized that it would be a crucial game for his team. "Crucial game"Gerets scouted PSV himself one time: last Sunday he saw them earn an emphatic 4-1 win over Roda JC. "I met many old acqiantances and it will be a special encounter for me. But we must win this game at all costs. Winning this game is more important than being friends at the moment. After we drew with Bordeaux, we need a win. It will be a tall task, but I feel we stand a fair chance of winning."Gerets was particularly impressed by Arouna Koné’s performance last Sunday. "He could have scored four goals; he is definitely a player with goal threat. The Champions League is different from the games we play in the national league. I feel confident. We need time to achieve successes."Ronald Koeman will preview the game at a press conference in the stadium that starts at 19:00.
