AZ coach remains positive despite penultimate place: ‘Routiniers have to pick up the glove'

AZ coach remains positive despite penultimate place: ‘Routiniers have to pick up the glove’

AZ coach Pascal Jansen saw many important players leave last summer. Decisive players such as Teun Koopmeiners (Atalanta), Calvin Stengs (Nice) and Myron Boadu (AS Monaco) flew abroad. Like a brain drain, or talent drain, rather.

“That is inherent in football”, however, Jansen puts it into perspective. “That also offers room for other players and we still have good players. We have also shown that in recent games, but we are in somewhat heavier weather.”

Stiff start

Feel free to say heavy weather. AZ occupies the penultimate place in the ranking. Only once did the Alkmaarders win this competition, Jansen’s team went down three times. RKC Waalwijk, PSV and Heracles Almelo all turned out to be too strong.

“It’s a rough start, an annoying start. But we are convinced that we have such a selection that we can do better than we currently demonstrate with our place in the ranking. We find that we play quite well, but that it hasn’t always worked out.”

According to Jansen, the way up must be taken with the routines of the selection as the leaders. “Guys like Martins Indi, Letschert and Midtsjø, they have to pick up that gauntlet.”
