Simon Mignolet: “The score doesn't tell everything"

A clearly disappointed Simon Mignolet had to concede three goals. Despite the frustrations, the goalkeeper of the Blues analysed the match afterwards.

“You know beforehand that you will play a match at the highest level. We controlled the first half and did the same in the beginning of the second half. They then scored a first goal on the counterattack. You know they are dangerous in such situations and this was the perfect scenario for them. We had no possibilities to score anymore after their second goal. However, it doesn't matter whether you lose 1, 2 or 3-0. The score doesn't tell everything."

In the first half Club had a few opportunities to open the score. However, the Blues didn't manage to do so. "We were not really brought into trouble in the first half and also controlled the match in the beginning of the second half. However, a couple of counterattacks occurred in a very brief period of time and it was suddenly 3-0."

The goalkeeper responded “You are top of the ranking based on your own performance and then you lose half of your points. You know the oppponents can come closer quickly then if you don't obtain points yourself. The ranking immediately looks differently then." on the question whether there is enough confidence. 

Two matches against Antwerp are following now. “We told before the match that we don't have to start counting. We have to focus on the next match in order to take the three points home." (EV)
