On Sunday, after the draw by Feyenoord against Heracles Almelo (1-1), Steven Berghuis is by no means enthusiastic about the game of the Rotterdam-squad. The attacker believes that many mistakes are still being made.
"Once again it was not good. We had a lot of opportunities, if you make it easier and that is good for confidence", Berghuis, who was the captain on Sunday because Eric Botteghin was sitting on the bench, started his story against FOX Sports .
"However, we are still doing too much wrong, the distances are too long, you will not make it. Those problems keep coming back," continued Berghuis. "We are bringing too many people into the build-up. If we play a long ball, they can no longer connect because it is impossible to walk."
Feyenoord took the lead against Heracles Almelo via Jens Toornstra, but after the break Orestis Kiomourtzoglou equalized on behalf of the visitors. Jaap Stam's team still had a few enormous opportunities in the final phase, but it remained at 1-1.
The 27-year-old Berghuis was also unable to leave his mark on the game. "I was not good at all today. I did not come into my game and I was sloppy at the ball. After losing the ball, you want to put pressure, but then we are far too far apart. That mutual cooperation must be better, then you make it easier for yourself "
With fourteen points from ten games, Feyenoord is now in a very disappointing tenth place in the Eredivisie. Next Sunday, the 2017 champion will visit Ajax leader.
