PSV went into Sunday’s clash knowing a victory would be enough to lift the trophy and they eased to a 3-0 win over Ajax in the Philips Stadion.

Cocu said afterwards it was special to beat Ajax for the title, “It’s special against a direct competitor. These are special moments, but of course, it’s just about the title. Against whom you win, does not matter that much. But it is still a good time to show it against the direct competitor.”

After being splashed by his players, Cocu continued the interview and praised his players unity, “The strength of the team was very important. It really has become a team. Everyone goes through the fire for each other. Even in difficult times, because you also encounter them in a season. Nice to experience this.”

On the season, he added, “There was so much change in the summer. Not only in terms of personalities, but also in terms of player types. We had to adjust the system with a block of two in the midfield and creativity for it.

“Stability was very important this year. The collective has won the title.”

On his own future, Cocu believes he will be at PSV next season, “I just have a contract. We are already working on next season. So that just goes on. “
