REACTIONS. Felice Mazzu sneezes at Bart Verhaeghe: “We are second in the Premier League”, Van Crombrugge hard after another defeat against Union

“Two hours before kick-off, we were still very disappointed when we heard that Club had won,” said Felice Mazzu. “We’ve worked a lot mentally in the past few days anyway. Today we were nevertheless very efficient, as we have been all season. As a team that comes from the second division, we are having an extraordinary season. Thank you to the players, the management and the public.”

Union eventually won all its matches against Anderlecht. However, Mazzu does not attach much importance to this. “Our victories against Anderlecht are not the most important, but the second place we have achieved. We can now go to the preliminary rounds of the Champions League and are already certain of the groups of the Europa League, and that for a team like Union.”

Now there is still a superfluous game against Antwerp. “We definitely want to win that match next week. We want to end the season well for our own audience.”

Mazzu ended with a small sneer at Bart Verhaeghe, who stated earlier in the day that Union also has the necessary financial resources thanks to mother club Brighton. “Today we finished second in the Premier League,” said Mazzu in his well-known style.

Van der Heyden: “From now on it’s fun”

“It was difficult when we heard that Club Brugge had won the championship. But we had to quickly flip the switch. We are happy with the season we played. Okay, maybe we could get more out of it, but from now on it’s just plain fun. I think everyone appreciates what we’ve accomplished this season: the players, the fans, the club…”

“Why did it succeed four times against Anderlecht but not once against Bruges? Sometimes things have to be lucky, and that was never the case against Club. We also played good games against them, but that’s football. Congratulations to Club Brugge.”

Van Crombrugge: “We make it difficult for ourselves”

“In four games against Union, we conceded 11 goals and scored only two ourselves. That says enough. If you fail to score in three out of four games, you are making it very difficult for yourself. What is this about? Concentration. The second goal comes too easily. If there is a team that takes advantage of such gaps, it is Union with players like Vanzeir and Undav. We also start the game with a 1-0 deficit, then it’s impossible.”

“Whether I am satisfied with the preliminary rounds of the Conference League? If that is the highest achievable, then you should be satisfied with that. Now we have an unnecessary game against Club Bruggen. We are obliged not only to the club, but also to the fans to at least end that game with a good performance.”
