Danny Buijs returns to the FC Groningen bench on Wednesday during the home game with Feyenoord. The trainer of the ‘Trots van het Noorden’ had to pass up the derby against sc Heerenveen on Sunday.
Buijs stayed at home as a precaution because he had been in contact with a person infected with the corona virus. The former midfielder tested negative himself, but still had to follow Heerenveen-Groningen (1-1) at home on television.
“I had the supporter feeling again and that gave a very unpleasant feeling, especially in the first half. Not in the second half, then we played very well. The advantage of Sunday was that I was able to go to FC Twente-Feyenoord at my leisure look “, says Buijs.
“Feyenoord played a bad game, but it also says something that they will not lose him. It is not that we just win, but if we reach a good level, we can achieve a good result.”
FC Groningen still has to do against Feyenoord without Arjen Robben, who only played in two league matches this season. Ahmed El Messaoudi and Azor Matusiwa are also not available due to injuries.
The match between FC Groningen and Feyenoord, the numbers six and four of the Eredivisie, starts on Wednesday at 6.45 p.m. and is led by referee Martin van den Kerkhof. A little earlier in the day, at 4.30 pm, is the kick-off at Willem II-ADO The Hague.
FC Groningen was led by assistant coach Adrie Poldervaart against sc Heerenveen, who became involved in the revelry after the 1-1.
