‘Guilty found for Club Brugge’s rotten season’

Club Brugge led a historic campaign in the Champions League, but is experiencing a particularly disappointing season in its own country. Blauw-Zwart even threatens to miss participation in the most important play-off competition for the first time. According to analyst Jan Boskamp, ​​this is mainly the fault of the board.

The team from Bruges started the current season strongly. But as soon as the qualification for the 1/8th finals of the Champions League was in the bag, the results went downhill. Club suffered a painful defeat in the Croky Cup and disappointments piled up in the competition. As a result, Blauw-Zwart even dropped back to fifth place, putting its ticket for the Champions’ Play-Offs in acute jeopardy.

Club can still reach the top 4, but Boskamp fears that. In its weekly analysis for The Importance of Limburg the Dutchman states that AA Gent will probably win the argument. And according to him, Blauw-Zwart mainly owes it to itself. He points an accusing finger at the club management. “That’s what you get when you wear out three trainers in one season. I’ve said it here before, but their board bears a crushing responsibility in this,” says Boskamp.


Of course there are more factors that played a role in the Bruges malaise, but the fact is that the board made some gross (judgment) errors. For example, the experiment with Carl Hoefkens as T1 may have been abandoned a little too early. The appointment of Scott Parker, on the other hand, was a major failure. And the ball was also missed several times on the transfer market, with the disappointing transfers of Roman Yaremchuk and Dedryck Boyata as exponents. The club management will therefore certainly have to put their hand in their own bosom when the evaluation of the season is made.
