Kyriani Sabbe: “It's with contentment that I'm here now"

Jupiler Pro League

Club won 4-2 against Charleroi but had a tough evening. On the other hand, there were some bright spots such as the starting place for youngster Kyriani Sabbe who thanked with the assist for Club's second goal.

"I am standing here with a very satisfied feeling," were the young right-back's first words. "It's always nice when you can record a victory on the eve before a European game. Nevertheless, we should not be blind to what was not good tonight. Our start to the game, for example, was way too slow, which almost immediately put Charleroi ahead 0-1. That certainly needs to improve next Thursday night. After that, fortunately, we did wake up and got into our normal game. Personally, I'm glad I was able to show myself to our fans, as it was my first starting place in a home match, but it felt good. I am quite proud of my performance now anyway and I think it is fair to say that I grabbed my chance with both hands. I was especially pleased that my second cross from the right was headed into target by Brandon. As a result, I also have an assist to my name now. I think we can now start putting the focus on next Thursday's encounter. We managed to score four goals and if we also react a bit more alert defensively we should definitely be able to beat Besiktas here at home." (FDC)
