Mike Snoei proud of Plet in victory against old club: “Glad that the fire is still burning”

Mike Snoei jumped a hole in the air after Jonathan Mulder’s winning goal. Thanks to the wing attacker’s 0-1, the Telstar trainer booked a very welcome victory over his old employer De Graafschap. “Of course it’s great to win against your old team.”

It was twenty months ago that Snoei was last at De Vijverberg for a competition. “I’ve always had a good time here. My family was in the stands. It was a special day,” says Snoei after the game. “My players have been bothering me all week. Sometimes I’ve gone too far to explain why I wanted to win here so badly. I’m 60 now, but I’m glad the fire is still burning in me.”

“Trainer! If you change me now, I will never forgive you”

Snoei was of course very pleased with the work ethic of his team who continued to fight for every metre. “Tom Overtoom played incredibly well. But then we also sell others short. Glynor Plet was great. He said: “Trainer! If you change me now, I will never forgive you.” Normally I always change Glynor fifteen minutes before time, but we have now left it alone. I was proud of my captain.”

Jonathan Mulder was the celebrated man at Telstar. The wing defender came on fifteen minutes before the end and scored the winning goal ten minutes later. “It feels good. My first goal in professional football. I am especially happy that we were able to win through my goal,” said Mulder.
