Brandon Mechele: "This final is a missed opportunity"

Brandon Mechele had his hands full with Dieumerci Mbokani. The Congolese couldn't score, but former Club player Lior Refaelov did. Mechele was disappointed after missing this great chance for silverware.


"You could see that Antwerp showed more passion, especially in the first half. We did better in the second, but they were well-organized and dangerous on the break. We knew how they were going to play, but still they managed to be dangerous. When they scored, we knew it was going to be tough. They could play their favourite game: defending the lead and trying to double that lead on the break.

This is definitely a missed opportunity. After so many years we had the chance to win the double. We've looked forward to this game for months. We've worked so hard but that first half was a huge disillusion. Next week the new seasons starts. We can only make sure to show then that we are ready. It has to be better than today." (VL)
