“You always have three parties to negotiate. You can want things, you can set a certain budget, but then the club you negotiate with has to agree with your budget and it has to agree on the timing at which it lets a player go. Because many leagues are not in sync with ours, that is sometimes a problem. And now that those competitions are over, those players or club leaders want to go on holiday first, “said Clement.
Still, Clement isn’t concerned yet. He therefore has confidence in the board of Club Brugge. “As a coach I have to deal with the present. I know the board is working on it, I know what the plans are. We discussed them together and I have no doubt that the people within the club are working hard on that. “
