Melbourne Heart’s van ‘t Schip determined to bounce back from heavy loss

Melbourne Heart coach John van ‘t Schip is keen to put Saturday night’s heavy 4-0 loss at the hands of Brisbane Roar behind them.

The new A-League club experienced their worst defeat in Week 8 of the season and after conceding that his side were thoroughly outplayed, van ‘t Schip is determined to put the aberration behind him.

''Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. We were outplayed all over the pitch. We were late, we lost easy balls. We were very poor, and we made the opponents stronger,” he said.

''We gave away possession too easily and too often and then we were chasing them too much.

''I would like to play as soon as possible again. When I was a player I would say I would like to play the next game even maybe tomorrow to get rid of the bad feeling we have now.''

The good news for van ‘t Schip is that football is a game where you can redeem yourself next week but the bad news is that this weekend’s Melbourne derby with the Victory has been rescheduled to the following week because of the AFL Grand Final replay meaning he will have to wait longer than usual to get his team back on track.
