Club Brugge and Charleroi kick off the Jupiler Pro League on Saturday afternoon. Eleven Sports got Bart Verhaeghe for the camera. The chairman of Club Brugge was very critical.
The start of the competition is not the only thing that offends Verhaeghe. The number of matches and the timings are also far from optimal in his eyes. “We play too many matches in Belgian football and too often at the wrong time. We have to see that we are ready for those European matches and that can be done by reducing the number of matches.”
“In addition, the intensity in the final phase of the season is extremely high, because the play-offs are underway. Just when, for example, the European quarter-finals are underway. And that’s what we are doing it for. can Club Brugge and other teams cherish it, huh !? “, the ever ambitious Verhaeghe concludes.
