Philippe Clement: “Completely overpowered”

One point to secure a place in Europe after the Winter Break: that's all Club needed against Leipzig, but those plans were quickly stricken. Club suffered a chanceless 0-5 defeat. An extremely disappointed T1 Philippe Clement reacted after the game.

“We're all devestated: players, staff and supporters. We played a thoroughly awful first half, and were completely overpowered. We created nothing, and conceded four. In the second half we had a fair share of chances, but it turned out to be an utterly disappointing evening. It's hard to declare, but it is clear that we have been overpowered. We knew this is a team that likes playing a vertical game, but if you don't win any duels, you just cannot win. I'm the one who puts the names on the board and decides on game tactics, so it's clear that I also made the wrong choices. Our intention was to score a goal and play forward. And to win duels in the back. Unfortunately we weren't good in duels, and we just didn't do a good job. We know have to brush ourselves off, get up and fight again. That's also what we want to do at Genk on Sunday. Nothing's over indefinitely. We now need to find out which players will show they truly want to fight for our cause.” (SF)
