Simon Mignolet: "Really desperately needed that positive result”

Things weren' exactly rosy as Genk took a 2-1 lead halfway through the second half, but a ten man Club Brugge brushed itself off and managed to still turn that loss into a 2-3 defeat.

“Just like I had said earlier this week, a positive result is what we desperately needed", Club's goalie started out. "This 2-3 win at Genk, and this with over 45 minutes down to ten, is a great result, and we should be very happy with the three points today. There was not much discussion about Ignace's sending off (Van den Brempt, edit), as we knew that we would be put under pressure despite our 0-1 lead. We didn't play all that bad in the first half, and were somewhat in control of the game. But down to ten you just know it's going to be tough. Everyone showed the right mentality, however, even 2-1 down, which can always help you towards a fine result. And yes, I should have done better when Hrosovsky scored his second, but that ball bounced right in front of me and went over me. But as I said, we showed resilience, mentality, and managed to come out victorious, and we're very happy with that. Things aren't always that perfect, but I'm also just one component of this team; today, however, the victory was all that mattered!” (FDC)
