Clement gets full charge: “He loses the match”


Club Brugge will have to keep its dream of achieving the national double in the fridge for at least a few more months. After all, the Dutch champion went down surprisingly against Antwerp FC in the cup final on Saturday evening. Coach Philippe Clement did not make such a good turn this time.

For example, the ‘Trainer of the Year’ raised the eyebrows with some questionable choices. He had Youssouph Badji, the revelation of the preparation, start on the couch, for example. When the young Senegalese came in, however, there was much more depth at Club. Siebe Schrijvers, who completed the preparation in an impressive manner, also had to make peace with a substitution.

In addition, Clement decided to take the risk of starting Eder Balanta instead of Mats Rits. However, the Colombian had only just recovered from an intestinal virus and eventually played a lousy match. Finally, he used the long ball strikingly often, while the Bruges attackers were not exactly very strong. On social media, Clement therefore had to pay for its own supporters.

POLL: Clement should always have started Badji …
