Ivan Leko: "Showed too little inside the box"

In its last home game, Club Brugge lost at the hands of Mouscron. A bitter pill to swallow as we head for the Play-Offs.

“A dire result, despite our fine preparation of the game. We knew Mouscron harbours lots of qualities, and that this was the type of game that would be about power and duels. It was hard to play football, and despite the fact that we managed to put high pressure, we didn't make enough of individual flashes of genius. We took on the second half in an all-or-nothing mindset, but with a number of fabulous saves, Butez made sure we had trouble scoring. When you don't capitalise on your chances, you lose. That's how it is. And through our lack of efficiency inside the boxes, we showed too little.”

 

Disappointed rhetoric by Leko, but he still believes in the power of Blauw-Zwart. “The guys are doing well at training, we play dominant football, and create chances. We are all set back right now, but we have proven before we are capable to beat the big teams, so I'm expecting a fine Club Brugge in the Play-Offs”.
