Cocu: We haven’t won anything yet

PSV manager Phillip Cocu is proud of his team's achievements this season, but insists they will take nothing for granted despite their good form.

The Boeren came through a tough Champions League last-16 first leg tie against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday with an impressive 0-0 draw, leaving them very much in contention to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.

They also sit top of the Eredivisie with a slender one-point lead over Ajax, and Cocu is determined not to let the press or his players get carried away by their success until they have actually won a trophy.

"We haven't won anything yet. We haven't been crowned champions nor have we reached the next round of the UEFA Champions League," he said.

"It's nice for the club to receive compliments for all the hard work we have put in, but it leaves me with mixed feelings.

"We have not lifted any trophy yet. We should be proud of our achievements but we shouldn't be carried away, either."

PSV will look to extend their lead over Ajax when they welcome ADO Den Haag to the Philips Stadion on Saturday and Cocu joked about the attacking prowess of their opponent's goalkeeper after seeing Martin Hansen score a 94th-minute back heel to earn them a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

"I just hope Hansen will not decide to join his team-mates in attack," he concluded with a wry smile.
