Rik De Mil: ”No reason to panic although I am very disappointed"

Club Brugge created a few excellent possibilities to score against KV Kortrijk but the ball did not go into target. The Blues lost 1-0 and did a poor job in the battle for the Champions' play-offs. As a result, coach Rik De Mil was very disappointed.

"This is not a step backwards. I am of course very disappointed because of the result. However, I saw a team that brought what I want to see in terms of mentality and fighting spirit. We also did a good job in terms of organisation, eagerness and drive. Blood, sweat and tears, as we say at our club, were present. Unfortunately, efficiency was lacking today. Whether we should fear the Champions' play-offs? We knew there were five finals left. But just because you lose one doesn't mean you can't qualify anymore. There is no reason to panic but I am very disappointed."

The coach of the Blues is giving confidence to the youngsters of the team. Jorne Spileers retained his place in the starting eleven, while in the second half both Chemsdine Talbi and Romeo Vermant were allowed to make their debuts for the Blues. "I don't just throw them in. I see them working hard during the week and had confidence in them. At this score, we had to try to force something. Either we let it run its course with maybe the same result, or we take some risks with young guys who came in full of enthusiasm. The circumstances were tough for these guys but they were not impressed and took initiative. I am satisfied with their performance.” (SF)
