Club Brugge underwent the law of the strongest against Dortmund, which also decided coach Philippe Clement after the 3-0 defeat in Germany. “We didn’t take the crumbs.”
“After the draw we already said that Dortmund was” out of our league “and they showed that again,” said Clement. “If you want to get a result in these top competitions, you have to take the crumbs and be very lucky.”
“Today we have left the crumbs. Then this defeat is a logical result.”
Yet it was not all doom and gloom at Club Brugge. Clement also saw some positive points. “I am satisfied that my team has fought the entire match”, he said.
“I also saw a very strong Charles De Ketelaere in a position that he is not used to. Odilon Kossounou may have made a mistake in defense, but as a 19-year-old he also showed a lot of good things in his CL debut. “
Today we left the crumbs. Then this defeat is a logical result.
“Mouscron is currently more important than Zenit”
Philippe Clement now focuses on the competition match against Mouscron. “We have to quickly turn the switch to the league. Fortunately, you don’t see a team like Dortmund in Belgium,” he joked.
Is Club aiming for third place or second place in its group? Clement skillfully avoided that question. “I look at it game by game. We will give everything next week to win against Zenit and then you know what you have in your hands. But at the moment the game against Mouscron is more important.”
