Mark van Bommel is no longer willing to think about the title after PSV Eindhoven lost 1-0 to AZ Alkmaar on Sunday.

PSV’s 1-0 defeat to AZ means they are now three points behind Ajax going into the final day of the season on Wednesday. Ajax also have a far superior goal difference, that means even if PSV win against Heracles and Ajax lose to De Graafschap, the title is still very likely to go to Amsterdam.

Speaking to Fox Sports after the defeat, PSV boss Mark van Bommel said, “I don’t feel like discussing the entire season right now.

“We get eighty points, but you are second. Then I can put up a nice story, but it is not enough. We can absolutely not talk about the championship anymore. Whether Ajax is the rightful champion? Yes, if you become a champion, then you are the rightful champion.

“It wasn’t a super bad season, but it won’t help you if you don’t become a champion. We must now be realistic and know that we will not make up for this anymore.”

Van Bommel believes the 3-1 defeat at Ajax was the big turning moment in the title race, “In Amsterdam, in particular, we let it go. We gave one chance away and that was immediately a goal, with the David Neres moment (penalty at 1-1). We also had total control. We played really well there, but at 1-1 against ten, we should have finished. “
