Rijkaard said: “We must keep working as a team. We deserved victory against a very organised rival.
“Ronnie has been again decisive, it is important to watch forwards. I always speak of the attitude, of the form of this team, we can improve, but the victory has been important.
“I am happy with the three goals, we could have scored some more, but Recreativo has played very well. The penalty? I never talk about the decisions of the referee, not when we won nor when we lose.”
