<strong>Jos&eacute; IZQUIERDO</strong></p>
<p>
<strong>&ldquo;Forget the past and look ahead&rdquo;</strong></p>
<p>
Jos&eacute; Izquierdo performed well after a bad performance against Anderlecht. By scoring twice, the Golden Shoe had a big share in Club&#39;s victory against Ostend. &quot;Whether getting the Golden Shoe gave me a boost? I already won the Golden Shoe, I only received it officially now. We have a good team and showed that again this evening. We have to forget the past now and look ahead. I am happy about my game. The fans supported me and so did the team and the coach. They also had confidence in me during the bad moments. We will fight for it and we will continue playing with the same mentality. I do not have a certain objective, we will see what happens.&quot;<br />
The Colombian alread scored eleven goals this season now. &quot;Scoring gives confidence and that is important for both the player and the team. Pressure is always there and good efforts are proven by playing well under pressure on bad moments. We will go for it in the five remaining games.&quot; <strong>KN)</strong></p>

<strong>Dorin ROTARIU</strong></p>
<p>
<strong>&ldquo;I still have to get to know my teammates better&nbsp;&rdquo;</strong></p>
<p>
No Anthony Limbombe on the right wing but Dorin Rotariu. The Romanian&nbsp;played well and was happy with the 3-1 victory against Ostend. &quot;The victory was the most important thing tonight&quot;, were the first words of the young attacker. &quot;Of course we realize that we performed bad&nbsp;so far. We did not have much time to think after&nbsp;our defeat against Anderlecht and we wanted to show something at home. I was of course happy to start from kickoff and I think I performed well. Unfortunately I could not score but I think and hope to start from kickoff again on Monday against Zulte Waregem because of my&nbsp;performance today. I can still improve a&nbsp;lot but I also have to get to know my teammates better. We are close to AA Gent now because of this deserved victory and can start thinking about our next game now.&quot; <strong>(FDC)&nbsp;</strong></p>

<strong>Beno&icirc;t POULAIN</strong></p>
<p>
<strong>&ldquo;Win the last five games&rdquo;</strong></p>
<p>
Beno&icirc;t Poulain started again from kickoff after having been red suspended. &quot;Whether five new players at kickoff change a lot? You do not know how the game would have ended otherwise. So, it is hard to say. I find it normal to bring some fresh players after a mentally and physically tough game against Anderlecht. We will see soon whether we are on the good way now. Our main objective, the title, is almost gone which made it mentally difficult. I am satisfied about our game. We want to win all our remaining games in order to end as high as possible.&quot; <strong>(KN)</strong></p>

<strong>Michel PREUD&rsquo;HOMME</strong></p>
<p>
<strong>&ldquo;The players understood the message&rdquo;</strong></p>
<p>
Michel Preud&rsquo;homme saw a reaction of his team after the loss against Anderlecht. &quot;It was a game with a lot of effort and often also with good soccer. The players understood the message but the goal of Ostend made it more difficult. The message was to continue and we were rewarded because we did so. Whether this victory is crucial for the remainder of the play-offs? Every victory is important. You have to win often if you want to grab a European ticket. We succeeded today.&quot; <strong>(SF)</strong></p>
