After the following Eredivisie win, PSV coach Peter Bosz discussed PSV Eindhoven’s impressive run and the “problems” the positivity surrounding PSV could entail.
With a 2-0 win over Heerenveen, PSV earned 45 points from the first 15 matches, a Dutch record. Only the 1987/88 PSV Eindhoven team has won more games in a row since the start of the season: 17.
PSV’s good form combined with the points loss among their rivals means that there is already a lot of talk about a potential title for PSV. “The Country” is already talking about PSV Eindhoven winning the national title, as was made clear in the press conference at the Philips Arena. “The country was not in a position where they had to lead a team with a ten-point lead,” Bush reiterated.
“Anyone who has played football at the top knows how difficult it is,” the coach notes of the remarkable series. This has only happened once in the Netherlands. PSV Eindhoven in 1987/88. Benfica have done it 24 times. But this did not happen in the major tournaments. So it’s completely unique. So it would be difficult, otherwise he would have succeeded more often. It’s not as easy as the Netherlands thinks.
Bosz is doing everything he can to keep his players on their toes. “The players are the people. The people who listen to the journalists, to the fans. They just pat themselves on the back, and I don’t read anything negative about the PSV Eindhoven players. To win this match again you have to work hard and defend. It’s very difficult, if you take everything together.
