“So, of course, you have to be ready, but also again you have to cut a point, you have to fight yourself into the season. But it is from game to game,”He added.
“I know, the rivals. We are the rivals, and we have to win every game but especially this game,”Erik said .
“I think I make myself clear. I was definitely not happy and in football you can talk about football, you can talk about planning our philosophy, but the basic stuff has to be good, and that starts with the right attitude.
So, you need a fighting spirit on the pitch, and I didn’t see that from minute one.
It starts with yourself. Act as a team. Follow the rules and principles and work hard, as hard as you can maximise,” the Dutchman added.
“If you do that, then you get confidence,”Erik said.
