Ivan Leko: “Moeskroen are the best team in 2019 which deserves respect"

On Sunday evening, Club Brugge play their last home game in the regular league against Moeskroen. "We are always the favorite at home but we have to prove ourselves", said Ivan Leko on Friday afternoon during the press conference.

Leko about… the team

The number of injured players is decreasing. "Danjuma trained again with the group this week. We hope he can join the team selection for Sunday's game but remain carefully. Arnaut is certainly an added value for this team but we focus on the victory and not on potential minutes of one player. Mitrovic, Mata and Nakamba are injured and will not be part of the team selection”, said coach Ivan Leko. The Croatian coach also talked briefly about the selection of Hans Vanaken and Brandon Mechele for the Red Devils. “I am very proud of our guys. Hans and Brandon are performing well for months now and they deserve it.”  

Leko about… the game against Moeskroen

Moeskroen did lose any game this year and deserve for the moment the title of the best team of 2019 in the Jupiler Pro League. "I can only have respect for what Moeskroen showed the last couple of months. Six victories and two draws with good soccer. Therefore, I expect an open game on Sunday but we play at home and have to show why we are always the favorite at home. The energy and spirit are there and we will fight on the field until the end."
