The controversial penalty awarded in the ninth minute of the PSV-Ajax game was the central subject of conversation during the post match press conference. There was a heart-felt agreement between the two coaches Danny Blind and Guus Hiddink on this topic."Full of determination""The key moment was undoubtedly the penalty decision taken by referee Vink on nine minutes. His decision was wrong. I felt already dubious about his decision when he took it and video footage has confirmed my view", said Blind at the post-match press conference. "We staged a brave comeback. We played well for about half an hour and created some slender chances and we did not concede anything in defence. We dominated the second period as well, but we lacked precision and cleverness during the final stages. PSV earned a few great opportunities in the last few minutes. But I haven’t got over the penalty decision yet. The referee took it full of determination, but it was hard for him to judge the situation correctly from where he was on the pitch." "I agree"Guus Hiddink was obviously delighted with the win. "We are very content with the great results we have achieved this week. It’s too bad that a top game like PSV-Ajax should be scheduled in a week crowded with Champions League obligations. Both teams cancelled each other out and were rather tentative. There were hardly any dangerous moments in front of the goal and we slackened in our second half efforts. And the second period continued in the same vein. Ajax threatened and we were unable to make it 2-0 in the closing stages. We survived some late scares. I entirely agree with Danny Blind’s analysis of the penalty decision. I never distort reality. His analysis was clear and I can only agree", felt Hiddink on the much-discussed controversial moment.
