FC Twente drew 1-1 at home against Go Ahead Eagles on Sunday and Leon ten Voorde is critical of trainer Ron Jans. The reporter saw that the Tukkers played badly in the second half.
“What also didn’t help was Joshua Brenet’s injury in the 57th minute. Perhaps that was even the breaking point in the match,” he recalls on the Tubantia website. “His replacement Luca Everink really did everything wrong and only brought unrest in the last line. In an attempt to survive, Jans put down a five-man defense in the final phase,” notes Ten Voorde.
“And not only that: with Annas Salah-Eddine, he also brought a left back on the wings instead of the quick Denilho Cleonise. Where Jans made a good change against RKC, he now brought on the problems,” continues the club watcher, who saw that the visitors were awarded a penalty in the Grolsch Veste in the final phase. “It was no coincidence that the penalty was caused by Everink,” he explains.
“The right back also made the unnecessary violation that preceded the penalty kick, which allowed Go Ahead to hurl the ball in front of the goal. It would not have been strange at all if the staff had changed Everink again in those final minutes, because from the first He was a danger to his own team for a minute,” concludes Ten Voorde about the wing defender, who had barely had the time from the technical staff to warm up. Afterwards, there was also a lot of criticism on Twitter of Ron Jans’ ‘substitution policy’.
