: “It was important to win here, even if it was difficult with the very high temperature. We had to be focused the whole game. But it’s good, because we prepared for Thursday’s game with the synthetic Young Boys from Bern. On my goal, it’s a very good collective work. We often try this kind of combinations in training so I’m happy that it works in matches. We have a good staff with a new philosophy, a good team so it’s only the beginning, I have a good feeling. We wanted to play offensively today, we have a lot of options offensively with the players on the pitch and those on the bench.”
Bruno: “We lacked aggressiveness, we respected the opponent too much. We let them play, we didn’t win enough duels, it’s difficult to win in these conditions. We had to press them high because “We were playing at home, but we did just the opposite. It’s hard to come back when you concede a goal and then a second against a team of this quality. We will work this week and try to catch up against Ostend on Saturday next.”
Van Crombrugge: “Each victory is good. It’s a new season with new elements, you have to be patient, but we already have good results so it’s positive. We start with a 9 out of 12, we learned the lessons from the defeat against the Cercle and we move forward. It’s important to have good connections between the players, especially in a three-man defense. We see that things are getting better from week to week. Young Boys are a bit like Vitesse last season, but we’re better equipped, so I’m confident, now we have to enjoy and focus on the next game.
Silva: My aim is not so bad. I had already tried earlier in the match, but it had been on the post. It’s my first header of the season so I’m happy. It doesn’t matter which player is playing next to me, everything happens naturally. The third goal is typically a goal that the coach asks us to work on in training. I had to fix the defender and it was necessary to wait for the right moment to give to Raman. Benito’s quality made the difference afterwards.”
Mallet: “We would have liked to play at another schedule, it didn’t happen, that’s how it is. We leave here without injuries and with the three points. We are improving in the philosophy that we want to put in place, in the structure and the block was well in place. We kept the zero behind and we scored three goals, there is improvement. Trebel’s role is to relay and of course to recover balls, he Saint-Truiden pushed after half-time, but they were two goals down and they are a team that have not lost for twelve games so it makes sense that they grow.”
