Thibault Vlietinck: “Scoring my first goal here is fantastic”

An emotional Thibault Vlietinck was very happy with his equaliser against Anderlecht. The young winger had only just been brought on, and scored with his first touch to the ball.

"To be scoring your first ever league goal here is just a fabulous feeling, particularly after my injury. It's been a really tough time for me, but today puts that in perspective. I didn't really know what to do when I scored. You see everyone coming towards you, and you see the fans going berserk. That was a first for me personally, a moment of joy I will treasure."

Despite the euphoria, Vlietinck remained level-headed. "More was in it today, we definitely could have won here. But we should remain positive, and keep working hard to end the season in style." (JDN)
