Joey Veerman left an excellent impression on Rafael van der Vaart in the Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund (1-1) on Tuesday. The Ziggo Sport analyst calls the PSV midfielder ‘absolutely the man of the match’. “Every pass was tailor-made,” said Van der Vaart.

UEFA also chose Veerman as man of the match. “He was very good, especially in the second half. He also gave the through ball to Lozano where the penalty ultimately resulted.” Luuk de Jong scored from eleven meters to make it 1-1.

“Veerman was lord and master in midfield,” continues the enthusiastic Van der Vaart. “I thought this was his best Champions League match so far. I have seen so many bad balls at PSV, but when he was on the ball there was always a certain peace. Customized passes, that is worth gold for a team! “

Veerman himself appeared in front of the camera at RTL shortly afterwards. The midfielder is disappointed that PSV could not win. “I didn’t think that was undeserved. I feel like we had the better chances and we ended up a bit unlucky at 0-1. Fortunately, you come back to 1-1. We have a team that can fight back and you saw that. also.”

Donyell Malen gave Dortmund the lead with a nice goal before half time. “I think Donyell hits him from an impossible angle, a nice goal,” says Veerman. “I think we just get three chances in the first half and at this level you have to make them.”

PSV came back to 1-1 via a very easily awarded penalty. Mats Hummels hit the ball first and then Malik Tillman, but the penalty remained. Veerman himself already had the feeling in the field that it was not right. “I saw it happen from behind. I also thought he was going to turn it back.”

Veerman realizes that PSV was lucky with the VAR this time. “I won’t say anything about the VAR. Now we have it with us, which is very nice for us. But the VAR was created to make the right decision and they sometimes forget to do that.”

The return will take place in Germany on Wednesday, March 13. “That won’t be that easy, but we’re going to do our best. It’s not a bad starting position.”
