According to former PSV midfielder Jason Culina, his former teammate, Philip Cocu is the perfect man for the club.
PSV forced Atletico Madrid to extra time, then penalties, and eventually lost 8-7 at the Vicente Calderon.
But Culina insists PSV are in safe hands with his old team-mate Cocu, whose side sit a point clear of Ajax at the Eredivisie summit.
“When he came back to PSV [as a player in 2004], he had been captain of Barcelona and was captain of the Dutch national team, so he had a presence about him,” ex-Australia international Culina told Omnisport.
“When you’re the captain of both those teams, you must have something about you and the thing that always struck me about him when I was playing with him was he was very calm and collected.
“He’s very precise in everything he does. He has that real leadership. I think he always had [coaching] in him. He’s a perfect fit for PSV.”
