This is what the 28 year old had to say in an interview to ANP, “This is a serious downer. We wanted to tackle this, but that did not happen.  It is very disappointing, because we played very badly”

“We were focused because we really wanted to show you something. Then you try and force it. Among the young players that can happen. But then we have played in the hands of PEC, they are very strong on the counter. “

The Lancers now play their first match of the season against Vitesse Arnhem on 10th of August.
