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.
