Michael Van Gerwen Criticises Gerwyn Price's On Stage Behaviour

Michael van Gerwen progressed to the quarter-finals of the World Series of Darts finals in front of a home crowd in the Netherlands on Saturday.

The world number one came from 4-2 down to continue his unbeaten run against Gerwyn Price with a 6-5 win.

Post-match, Van Gerwyn was critical of his opponent's behaviour on stage.

"I think it went OK, it wasn't superb but I did the right things at the right moments," Van Gerwen told Live Darts TV.

Gerwyn is a phenomenal player but as long as he keeps thinking about other stuff than darts, like pulling his socks up and talking next to me.

He shouldn’t do that because he’s much better than that and doesn’t need stuff like that, it’s a bit unfortunate.

"It doesn't help his game," added Van Gerwen.

"If he's the second best player, I don't care as long as I'm the best."

The victory was the Dutchman's 19th win in 19 games against his Welsh opponent. Throughout the match, the Amsterdam crowd left no doubt about who they were supporting - Price regularly booed.

"Everyone wants me to win," said Van Gerwen.

"I got the crowd behind me. I only have that a few times a year, if people start moaning about that, it wouldn't really be fair on me, would it?
