Ivan Leko: “Played with lots of personality and risk”
Ivan Leko's outfit put in a great performance at Anderlecht, but unfortunately had to settle for the one point.
“An interesting game. I'm happy with what my team showed today. We manned the pitch with the intention to win this game. In the first half hour, we played really well, took the lead and could have scored more. Suddenly we conceded that goal way too easily, which changed the game a bit. In the second half, we again showed lots of personality and brought risk to our game, which really pleased me. As to the result, I have mixed feelings. Conceding a second goal with just ten minutes to go, you might say a point would be good. On the other hand, I reckon we were the only team deserving of the three points, taking into account the way we played.”
Blauw-Zwart did not seize the opportunity to grab the three points at the Astrid Parc. “Club has had a bad run here in the past 21 years, but more was in it today. Kudos to the team, as they did really well when it comes to energy, personality, and commitment. Four out of six against Genk and Anderlecht is a downright great result. It's clear that these will be exciting play-offs.” (SF)
