Simon Mignolet: “We did not expect this scenario"

Club lost 2-1 at Anderlecht and nobody expected that after seventy minutes. Club took the lead but Anderlecht scored after a nice attack and decided the match with a distance shot.

“We controlled the match during the first 70 minutes", said Mignolet afterwards. "They score after a nice attack then but Lokonga then also scored with a distance shot. I haven't seen a video of that goal yet but the ball first went to the right and then turned to the left and I was beaten. That is very frustrating of course. We were dominant until then and deserved the lead."

Club did not respond anymore after the 2-1. "I think anyone of our team expected such scenario", said Mignolet in an attempt to explain the situation. "We didn't create a chance anymore but I don't think it went wrong there. I rather think we should have scored one or two goals after we took the lead in order to prevent Anderlecht from coming back into the game. Yes, this is pity because we have to go home with empty hands." (FDC)
