Steven Berghuis is happy that Feyenoord has recovered from a dramatic series.

The team from Rotterdam lost three times in a row, but won 3-1 against PSV on Sunday.

"This is very important. For us as a team, for the club. If you had lost today, we would have traveled to FC Groningen with a bad feeling. Then it will become increasingly difficult. This is a fantastic victory. We fought well and struck from the counter, "Berghuis told

ESPN

.

Feyenoord went down in the past two weeks against Ajax (1-0), AZ (2-3) and sc Heerenveen (3-0), after which some irritations arose between trainer Dick Advocaat and the players, but they were pronounced on Friday .

Against PSV, Feyenoord reached a nice level again.

Berghuis was responsible for the 2-0 against PSV.

He brilliantly shot the ball from about 25 meters into the far corner.

The captain, who scored his eleventh league goal of the season and is thus shared second on the top scorers list, scored for the first time after the winter break.

"Of course I needed that. As an attacker of Feyenoord you have to deliver and I was dry for quite a long time. That is not good. But it is also the case that the wingers are low on the field with our way of play. The ball early in the build-up. The striker then has to hold the ball and that went well today. "

Irritated Berghuis: 'I work hard every game'

Berghuis was still remarkably irritated when the reporter made a comment to him that he had to work hard against PSV.

"Sorry, but I am biting off myself now, because I work hard every match. Didn't you see me against Ajax and AZ?"

The lawyer was also very pleased with what Feyenoord showed against PSV.

"As a team we have done really well", said the coach, who announced on Friday that he will finish the season in De Kuip because the players are 100 percent behind him.

"PSV is a very good team. But in the matches we watched from them, we saw that they play very far forward. That is why they give away a lot of chances. You have to take advantage of the opportunities that you get then. we did an excellent job today. "

Despite the victory over PSV as number four, Feyenoord is still nine points behind leader Ajax, which will take on AZ later on Sunday in Alkmaar.

Advocaat's team therefore seems to be condemned to the battle for a ticket for European football.
