Zeljko Petrovic returned to the training field at Willem II on Friday.

The Tilburg team's coach underwent medical intervention on Tuesday because of an acute hernia, which made him absent for a while.

The 55-year-old Petrovic missed last Saturday's away match against FC Utrecht (3-2), but wants to be back at home against PSV on Sunday.

"The pain is acceptable and I must and will sit on the bench in the last matches to keep Willem II in the Eredivisie," said the Montenegrin coach on Willem II's website on Friday.

"The captain has to be the last to leave, not the first. Then just a syringe and a lot of pills in it to be back on the training field", he added in conversation with the



Petrovic thought it a pity that he could not be there in Utrecht.

"It is difficult as a coach to watch a game on television and not have any real influence."

Willem II is currently fifteenth in the Eredivisie, but the lead over FC Emmen (sixteenth) is only one point.

The Brabanters can therefore use a victory well.

"We will play against a great vanguard on Sunday. Mistakes are then immediately punished."

"ADO played a draw against PSV. So we must not be afraid and play sensibly, with our chest forward. They must, but we must too. It's that simple. I expect my team to be razor-sharp", said Petrovic, who defeated PSV against PSV. Jordens Peters as a replacement for the suspended Sebastian Holmén chooses.

The match between Willem II and PSV starts on Sunday at 4.45 p.m.

Dennis Higler is the referee on duty.

Last season, the Tilburg team won 2-1 in-house.

Earlier this season, PSV was 3-0 too strong in Eindhoven.
