Lawyer complimenteus: ‘Two left backs that can play in Orange’

Dick Lawyer pays a big compliment to the players of Feyenoord after the handsome 3-1 victory at CSKA Moscow in the Europa League. The trainer of the Rotterdammers is particularly praise about Ridgeciano Haps, but remains critical towards Orkun Kökcü.

Last week, Feyenoord got a beating of Austria‘s number ten last week, but was the leader of Russia on Thursday. “That’s football”, responds Attorney at FOX Sports. “Sometimes RKC is harder than CSKA. We knew we could play football from backwards. We did damn well. There was a team that almost dictated the game.”
Lawyer saw Feyenoord make a difference after rest. “The goals were beautiful,” says the Little General, who speaks of his left side, where Tyrell Malacia and Haps were the service. “I have two left backs that can both play in the Dutch team. I really mean that. Both Haps and Malacia really have the qualities. Haps stood there now and he did so excellently, with his threat, speed and dexterity.”

The performance of Kökcü was also highlighted. The midfielder was involved in all goals, but Lawyer is not satisfied yet. “Willem van Hanegem criticized him, and rightly so. Even today, more of him must come out. He‘s as mature enough to understand that. So if Van Hanegem says that, I’m fine with it, because he can do something with it. Potential, that boy has a lot.”
