PSV manager Ruud van Nistelrooy couldn't believe the nine minutes of stoppage time given in today's game against Feyenoord.
Van Nistelrooy's side were holding on to a 2-1 lead against the league leaders heading into stoppage time, but was amazed to see the substantial amount of stoppage time given at the end of the game.
PSV raced into a 1-0 lead through Anwar El Ghazi after eight minutes, managing to hold onto the lead until half-time and even grabbed a second through Thorgan Hazard in the second half, shortly after getting a player sent off.
Feyenoord got one back in the 81st minute, as former Brighton attacker Alireza Jahanbakhsh raised some hope for the league leaders.
Holding on in the latter stages, PSV manager van Nistelrooy was visibly shocked to see that an astounding nine minutes of stoppage time were added on to the end of the game, as his side were on course to pull off a vital result in their race for a European spot.
In the 96th minute, van Nistelrooy's fears came true as Jahanbakhsh doubled his tally in the game with a great effort from outside the box.
It is fair to say that the equaliser was coming though, as Feyenoord had 35 shots in the game, the most they have had in a game since Opta started analysing Eredivisie stats. (2010/11)
Following this result, Feyenoord have stayed atop the league table with PSV just outside of the European spaces in fourth by just one point.
