PSV head coach Ronald Koeman was critical about his team’s first half performance at the post-match press conference. " We put in a poor display. After the break we made amends and offered the crowd value for money." Although PSV enjoyed an emphatic 4-0 win over Excelsior, Ronald Koeman was not content with his team’s first half performance. "We put in a poor display, defended sloppily, so Excelsior could and should have scored a goal. We must take a critical stance and not just accept anything. We were 2-0 ahead at half time and yet I am dissatisfied with our first half performance. We made some changes after the break and intended to offer the crowd value for money by playing entertaining football. We scored two fine goals, which is a good thing”, concluded Koeman his analysis in the press room. Ton Lokhoff took a realistic stance. "I feel I have no reason to blame my team. I think we were well-disciplined and even started some quick counter attacks before the break. But when PSV extended the lead on the stroke of half time, we realised they had wrapped up the game. I told the lads to keep on playing in a disciplined way. We could not produce any danger any more. Next week we’ll take on Heracles, which is a crucial game for us, as we must get a result. Many of our players were here in the Philips Stadium for the first time and they will hopefully have benefited from the experience. We didn’t concede much and played some decent football at times. Tomorrow we’ll start focusing on next weekend’s game”, concluded the former PSV player.
