At the post-match press conference, PSV head coach Ronald Koeman hailed his team's excellent performance in their 4-0 win over Feyenoord. His Feyenoord colleague Bert van Marwijk admitted his side had slumped to an emphatic defeat. “We were outclassed on all fronts.”

“The rapid switch from defense to attack was the key so success”, explained Koeman after the entertaining goal. “We did extremely well as a team and we could and should have scored two more goals. We are used to playing high-level Champions League football. Our aim is to play attractive, high-tempo football combined with maximum efficiency. Some of the lads showed their skills today. I could obviously single out Perez for special praise, but he would never have been able put in such a commanding display without the hard work and sacrifice from Culina.” Koeman also told media representatives that PSV had consciously applied pressure on Feyenoord's left-footed centre backs.

Bert van Marwijk, who returned to the Philips Stadium after he had been plying his trade in Germany for some years, admitted that he had not expected to see his team slump to such an emphatic defeat. “We didn't stand a chance whatsoever and were outclassed on all fronts. We were forced to defend deeply and hardly ever pushed forward. We usually win balls in midfield and then pass the ball to open space behind the defenders, but today we just weren't able to do so. We conceded three first-half goals and at half time we realized we needed to reduce the deficit quickly in order to get back into the game. It's too bad De Guzman only rattled the post. With 3-1, we might have been handed a lifeline. We still have a lot to learn. Last week I was frequently asked if we would be able to continue our unbeaten run. The answer has been given this afternoon. We still have a long way to go”, concluded Van Marwijk.
