Slot ‘very disappointed’ in the first fifteen minutes of Feyenoord with Zwolle victory

Arne Slot has mixed feelings about Feyenoord’s 1-2 win against PEC Zwolle. The coach was logically happy with the victory, but was disappointed with the first fifteen minutes of his team.

“I was very disappointed in the first fifteen minutes,” said Slot. ESPN† “There was a lot of backlog and we passed easily a few times… The poison that we had to dodge 2-2 in the last ten minutes, we should have scored ourselves. difference.”

“In the first fifteen minutes I had the feeling that we were playing with the idea: if we don’t get there now, it will fall away later,” said Coach. “But you should not have that feeling, because there can always be something that can turn the game around, such as with that penalty against AZ. If you are better, you have to make it a goal. We do that too.” less this season.”

Partly due to the mediocre first fifteen minutes, Feyenoord fell behind at half-time with a goal from Bram van Polen. In the second half, the Rotterdam team turned around with goals from Luis Sinisterra and Cyriel Dessers.

“This is an unusual win,” Slot said. “Because we played poorly, but still managed to win. After an hour into the first quarter, PEC changed and they started to play quite compactly. In the second period we had to switch because the dynamics had to change. We did.” That’s by tweaking the system.”

Slot says nothing about arbitration

Slot was clearly dissatisfied with the referee, and in particular with the decision of referee Martin van den Kerkhof not to give Maikel van der Werff a red card. The PEC defender touched the ball with his arm and blocked the punctured Bryan Linssen from scoring.

After the game, the coach didn’t want to waste a word. “I thought about that during the game, but I’m really not going to say anything anymore.”

Feyenoord remained in third place in the Eredivisie due to the victory. The difference between Ajax and PSV is eight and six points respectively.
