Feyenoord is just very mediocre, Ajax and PSV are much farther

Mario Been and Kees Kwakman are very critical of Feyenoord‘s performance against FC Drita in the second heat of the Conference League. ESPN analysts believe that there is the necessary apron to play by the Rotterdammers and especially point to Orkun Kökcü.
“It was very moderate and even very bad at the ball,” Been stings ashore. “Kökcü is one of the players who should do it, but he had a lot of unnecessary ball loss.” The midfielder has taken over number ten from Steven Berghuis, but doesn’
t live up to that status yet. “I love a certain personality that he wants that number ten shirt. These are usually the players with the most creativity that show the most. He doesn‘t have that yet. When you see how much ball loss he has with the simplest solutions. That’s just way too much.”
Kwakman is not impressed by Kökcü either. “Whatever irritates me: those game reforms. Kökcü – apart from having surrendered twenty balls just like that – had only one good resumption. Each corner was for the goalkeeper or for the first defender. That didn‘t radiate anything either.” But Kwakman has more to comment on the game of the Arne Slot squad. “Feyenoord simply lacks any kind of creativity outside Sinisterra and a little bit of Malacia.”
“In the second half, Bryan Linssen remained on the outside and Pedersen stood on the inside,” Kwakman continued. “It really stood like a number ten. I don’
t quite understand that. If there‘s a certain dynamics, I get it. But if you stand there every time, the surprise is totally gone. And Linssen on the sidelines is not his strongest point. I’d put Conteh there sooner. They kept doing the same, but only one chance came out of that.”
Leg eventually rests in the draw. “You have to be realistic too. They didn‘t underestimate Drita. Feyenoord is just very moderate at the moment. They still lack the necessary players to grow to a certain level. Ajax and PSV are much further, of course. I didn’t expect too much of it either.”
