August 2013 Roundup
This month, our boys have put in some gutsy performances, and, despite falling short of expectations, there are some definite positives to be taken away from new manager Tony Young's first month of competitive matches.
A particular highlight this month was the performances of Abel Tamata, who was playing in the right-back position in most of this month's games. We at psv.nl
caught up with him after training yesterday to get his view on the first competitive month, and how he feels about being name the fans' player of the month!
Hi Abel, congratulations on winning the fans' player of the month award, as voted for by fanclub members and members of the club's official site!
Thanks! it really means a lot to have my efforts recognised by the supporters, and hopefully I can continue to grow as a player and continue to please the fans.
So, Tony's had his first competitive month in charge: how do you think it went?
Overall, we've put in some great performances, and really showed what we can do from an attacking perspective. Obviously its disappointing to lose games; and against Roda we should probably have won, but the Lyon result away from home really shocked us, and in the next game we found a new gear, and hopefully we can continue to find that top gear and put some more great performances in
What was your favourite moment of this month?
*laughs* in the changing room, after the ADO match, we all came back from the showers and Michy [Batshuayi] was changed and standing over Tony delivering a mock team-talk, telling him to get back out there and do 100 pressups in front of the remaining fans...
And how many did Tony manage?
78, but with Michy sitting on his back! Nobody's messed with him since!
So, the new PSV boss is a machine apparently, and spirits are high in the camp despite a heavy loss to Lyon; what does the future hold for PSV?
