Dwight Lodeweges swansong in charge of PSV

In Dwight Lodeweges swansong as PSV manager, his side faces Willem II as the Eredivisie comes to a conclusion. Through the ups and downs of the campaign, the arrival of Mr. Lodeweges has been a bright light serving the club so very well. With a two point lead over Heerenveen, a victory is important and equally should slip up against Twente, PSV can grab third-place.

Gracious in his press match press conference, the present PSV leader said:

“We will end the season on a high if we leapfrog Ajax. We faced severe problems three months ago but we are happy we’ve got our season back on track. We hope to end the season on a high. Wouldn’t it be a great achievement if we managed to leapfrog Ajax on the last match day? We faced a tall task overtaking sc Heerenveen, Ajax and FC Twente. We have meanwhile climbed into fourth spot and we still have a chance of finishing the season in third place. We’ve come from a long way and I’m happy with the progress we’ve been making the past three months.”

PSV will miss Ibrahim Afellay due to injury along with Edison Méndez and Danko Lazovic to suspension and have doubts of the availability of Otman Bakkal and Ola Toivonen.
