Ron Jans saw FC Twente get no further than a draw against Sparta Rotterdam on Friday evening. The team from Enschede did not succeed in cashing in on the dominance. Ron Jans started again with Sem Steijn and Michel Vlap in midfield.
Sem Steijn took care of the opening goal in Rotterdam. The attacking midfielder managed to head in a pass from Ricky van Wolfswinkel. “Yes, I thought that was a very nice goal,” Jans says. “Sem has actually not been in the picture for the entire half.”
Jans did not think Michel Vlap was invisible against Sparta. “Vlap plays in midfield with us,” explains Jans at ESPN. “People in our area are just pushing that he should score and give assists. But I think he has worked very hard and played quite nicely. He is becoming a better defender. I think that is important. that he suffered little loss of the ball while we were too sloppy or too fast in a number of situations.”
