Philippe Clement: “The hunger to win makes me happy”

Philippe Clement had again all reasons to be happy. The Blues never got into troubles against Zulte Waregem and won 4-0.


“I am very proud on my team", said Clement. "Before the game I asked my players to pamper the fans but that is not easy against a team as Zulte Waregem. We played well and very dominantly. Simon Mignolet did not have to intervene and we also scored a couple of beautiful goals. David Okereke was again the attacker of the season start. Earlier I already saw that on training but I am happy he also shows that in a game now. I am especially happy with my entire team, not only with the players who played today. Everyone worked very hard the past couple of months. I am also glad with my staff. Their hard work results in only one injured player. But most of all, I am happy with our winning mentality. The hunger to win makes me happy."

Club Brugge are top of the league but the coach of the Blues keeps both feet on the ground. "We are doing well right now but you need to confirm in the new year. Everyone needs to keep on working hard and no one can rest. We need to keep that mentality in order to further grow as a group. We will again play a lot of games in January and February and will prepare for that in Qatar. Whether this is the best Club of the past couple of years? The best Club is a Club that wins prizes. So we can only tell that at the end of the season.” (SF)
