Critical Perez gets rebuttal from Veerman: ‘See how easy Ajax footballs’

Henk Veerman is pleased with the energy that sc Heerenveen has put on the mat against Ajax in the semi-final of the KNVB Cup. ESPN analyst Kenneth Perez saw a sloppy Heerenveen at the ball, but Veerman prefers to highlight the positive points after the switch-off.

Heerenveen lost a chance to Ajax on Wednesday evening (0-3), but Veerman won‘t let himself out of the field after the match. Well, you know what I think? We put a lot of energy into it, and I’m proud of that. That we did radiate that we didn‘t want to be wiped off the mat here. That the ball is a little less, that can be… , he starts in front of ESPN’s camera.
That‘s not what Perez does. The analyst saw a very moderate Heerenveen and states that Heerenveen ‘did not really make a pot of it‘. Then you can still be glad that we put a lot of energy on the mat? That we don’t go off the field like sheep? , Veerman responds to Perez‘s statements. That it wasn’t good about the ball, that‘s clear.
Davy Klaassen put Ajax in the first half, but according to Heerenveen’
s long striker, there were also opportunities for his team. He resigns to defeat. That Ajax is the better team, that‘s what we expected. It’s a shame, it didn‘t work out. Then you can see how easy Ajax football is, he concludes.

Henk Veerman is’ proud ‘that Heerenveen has put a lot of energy into the competition. Kenneth does not entirely agree with that. I don’t think you really made a pot out of it
