Club Brugge immediately suffered a first defeat in the opening match against Charleroi, but the damage was not limited to that point loss alone. Before the break, Blauw-Zwart saw how Simon Deli had to go to the side injured.
The 28-year-old Ivorian did not yet act at the same high level as in the last campaign, when after his arrival in the summer he turned out to be one of the absolute strongholds in the iron defense over Jan Breydel in no time, but remains as a left-footed defender. anyway an important pawn in the rear of Philippe Clement. With Federico Ricca, he still has a solid alternative, although he will surely cross the fingers that Deli will soon be ready for the fight again.
Club Brugge has just come up with a first update in that regard. The national champion reports that Deli sustained an injury to the left quadriceps and is completing an individual program this week. Only afterwards is an evaluation to determine whether he can progressively join the group training again early next week. Clement does not seem to have to fear a long absence, although the mainstay in Eupen next weekend will be on the sidelines anyway.
