Afterwards speaking to NOS, Van Persie said, “Our game was too slow. I believe we created two chances. That is far too little against a team like Olympiakos. They did not had very many opportunities. It is not that they were great.”

The Dutch forward also seemed to be annoyed at the clubs tactics, “My teammates are in some of the areas where I want to play. This makes it difficult for me.”

“Then I have to change my tactics to suit my teammates, and play outside my zone. That’s a pity.”
