Trainer Roger Schmidt hopes that he can again include Noni Madueke and Armando Obispo in his selection of PSV for the cup final against Ajax on Sunday. Both players were missing on Thursday evening in the lost game against Leicester City (1-2) in the quarterfinals of the Conference League.
Schmidt and his players have little time to process the European elimination. The German coach was again on Friday morning for a press conference for the final battle of the KNVB Cup. Logically, he couldn’t report much more than Thursday evening just after the defeat against the current number 9 in the Premier League.
Schmidt can win two more trophies in the coming weeks before leaving PSV. Ajax is not only the opponent of his team in the cup final. The leader of the Eredivisie has a lead of 4 points over the competitor from Eindhoven five rounds before the end of the competition.
