Crystal Palace became the first team in Premier League history to lose their first five games without scoring as Roy Hodgson's tenure began with a 1-0 defeat to Southampton.
|We played four games and normally I like to play six, seven games,
said De Boer.
I am just focusing on what I can control and so are my staff and my players,
said De Boer. [The future] is for other people to decide but while I'm the manager of Crystal Palace I will give 100%.
As a manager you always have more pressure,
said De Boer. As a player I was nervous before games, you need tension to perform, and when the referee whistled, it was over, I was focused on the game.
You still have to be very p off if you don't get the result you want,
said de Boer. But if everything is correct and how you wanted to play and you don't get the result because the opponent is better, then you can live with it.
