Coach Phillip Cocu from PSV football team was very close to the place where one of the attacks took place in Paris. On Friday he was just a few kilometers away from the attacks, he said to ‘De Telegraaf’ (Dutch daily).
"You think this is impossible," said the coach of PSV. "All around you, you see fear and sorrow. You go through all kinds of emotions; incomprehension, horror, anger. And you still think: does it stay with these attacks? Will there be more? Are we safe? I do not think anyone in the city had slept that night. And yet the next morning you see the Parisians slowly picking up life, as good and as bad as that went. I have great respect for this."
On Monday, PSV with players, staff and other personnel also stopped in silence at the Herdgang to commemorate the events in Paris.
