Dick Advocaat currently has confidence in Bryan Linssen as center forward at Feyenoord. The team from Rotterdam will play against relegation candidate RKC Waalwijk on Sunday.
Lawyer does not underestimate any opponent
Linssen, who came over from Vitesse on a free transfer last summer, played five matches for Feyenoord this season and scored one goal. In the last matches, the originally left winger was preferred to Nicolai Jørgensen and Róbert Bozeník as center forward.
On Thursday, the thirty-year-old attacker missed a few good chances in the Europa League match with Dinamo Zagreb (0-0). “As a striker, Linssen has made a lot of meters and has been given opportunities. That ball will soon fall well for him,” said Lawyer on Friday.
Feyenoord also struggled to score in the derby against Sparta last weekend (1-1) despite some good chances. Lawyer: “After the game with Sparta, I heard people wondering how we could play a draw against that team, because ‘it was only Sparta’.”
“People should not expect us to win all matches. They can expect that we will not lose many matches, because we have a team that does not concede many goals,” said the 73-year-old coach.

Lawyer does not expect an easy victory over RKC, that the Eredivisie started with three defeats in a row, but then took points against Heracles Almelo (0-1) and PEC Zwolle (1-1). “We do not underestimate any team”, the trainer emphasized.
RKC Waalwijk-Feyenoord starts on Sunday at 4.45 pm.
