"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)
