maas vitMaas is coming under increasing pressure to steady this ship with Vitesse inconsistent so far since he took over the reigns from Peter Bosz in January. The club that is aiming for a top four finish is currently sitting 7th in the table.

He told NOS, “I am also disappointed about the result along with the players and supporters, one moment decided the game.

”I thought we controlled the game especially in the first half but we did not create enough chances and that is disappointing.

Rob Maas has come under close scrutiny since taking over from Peter Bosz. Vitesse won their opening game against SC Cambuur under his stewardship but have since then dropped points against Excelsior Rotterdam & De Graafschap. In the 7 games that Rob Maas has managed they have only secured 2 victories. The supporters of Vitesse are becoming restless.

”It’s worrying because we are creating so few chances and there are still elements of our game where we are sluggish.

”There is still a lot of drive and determination in this group of players and staff, Everybody is working hard and I cannot fault my players, Nobody has thrown in the towel.”

White handkerchiefs were brought out by supporters in the ‘Gelredome’ ( Vitesse’s home stadium) during the game against Willem II. Rob Maas was asked for his reaction, “I understand that the supporters are disappointed and we must improve.”
