FC Twente condemn coach attack

The vehicle was bombarded from a viaduct and sustained damage to

the side and the rear, although no one was hurt. Steve McClaren’s

side still played the match, which they lost 1-0 to remain four

points ahead of Ajax at the top of the table. The matter is being

investigated by police. “If the stone comes through the windscreen

and hits you while travelling, what then?” Twente chairman Jupp

Munsterman said on fctwente.nl. “I cannot believe this has

happened. How low can you get? “We will certainly make a statement

to police.” McLaren claimed the incident did not have an effect on

the result of the match. “That had no impact on our game,” the

former England boss said. McLaren admitted his side need to bounce

back from the defeat when they take on Feyenoord on Sunday if they

are to remain on course for the title. “We missed an opportunity

but we still have it in our own hands,” he added. “The reaction of

the team is very important. “We must now win the last two games and

go for it.”
