Feyenoord trainer Dick Advocate responded mildly after the end of the home game against Vitesse. The number five had to win from the number four, but got stuck on 0-0 and lost Steven Berghuis.
The captain took Maximilian Wittek down just before time and was able to move in: there is a chance that Berghuis will be suspended for at least two matches and miss De Classical. “Did I find him right? The boys said he did, too,” Lawyer held himself on the plain, when he spoke to ESPN afterwards. “I must have made these kinds of slidings, but Ronald (the Boer, red.) and Perez not…”
During the press conference, however, Lawyer was somewhat more pronounced about the action of Berghuis. “Then the frustration comes to the surface. That is not allowed, he says himself”, says De Kleine Generaal. “And he will have to learn that this kind of thing cannot be done anyway. What do I say to him? Not that much, because that makes no sense at all. He knows it was wrong, right?”
During the last weeks of Advocates trainers career, Feyenoord plays against ADO Den Haag, Ajax, Heracles Almelo and RKC Waalwijk. If the stadium club stays in its current fifth place, it still has to play play-offs to play European football.
