Ignace Van der Brempt: “Dream start thanks to the early goal"

Ignace Van der Brempt was given a chance in the starting eleven and opened the scoring with a wonderful goal. It was his first ever goal for the blue and black, after having scored for Club NXT earlier this season.


"I was feeded the ball at the edge of the area, on the right-hand side. I thought: cut inside, get past the central defender and roll it into the far corner. Ronaldo is my inspiration and my idol since I was young. I watch a lot of his video clips. It came natural and it's great to score so quickly. That's one of my strenghts I think and I try to do it when it's the right time. We practice it every day, so it's normal that it works in a game too. But it's something special, it's my first goal in the first division. That the highest level and it's something I've dreamt about for a while. I'm very happy right now."

Following his substitution at Kiev, Van der Brempt was now given a starting position in the game against OHL. "This didn't come as a big surprise, because I've done pretty well in Ukraine when I was subbed on. Obviously this was a dream start for me with the early goal. That changed everything and it felt great to help the team right away. When I'm given a chance I always try to take it with both hands. It's now important for me that I can keep developing and to do my utter best when the coach needs me. Obviously I now hope to play against Dynamo Kyiv again, but I'm also realistic. We have a lot of great players on different positions. But when I get my chance again, I'll take it." (KN/TM)
