After thirteen match days, Club Brugge is alone in the lead in the Jupiler Pro League (Charleroi can still reach the same level via a catch-up match), although they do not rush through the competition like a roller. “They are where they are, but we may expect a little more”, says Jan Ceulemans.
Being in the lead and yet people expect even more from your team. It is actually a compliment for Philippe Clement’s Club Brugge. “Which trainer does not want to be there first”, Jan Ceulemans opened the conversation in a witty manner. We asked him if this was Club’s worst period under Clement.
“Every big club counts on a few ‘big men’ who have to do it and who have to let the team play football. If they turn a little less, the team turns less. But Clement also pointed out that they have the second highest number. goals. Although they realize of course that this is not their top level. It is not that bad, but we all expect a little more from it. It can only go better “, said Ceulemans, who has been in the business for more than a decade. beautiful weather in blue-black.
Covid and tension
“It’s not a bad thing for the competition either. Now that the level is not top every week, there is at least a lot of tension. And we should not forget that this is a special year. I have the impression that the big teams suffer more from this. those empty stadiums. The players of, say, Anderlecht or Club are used to playing in front of 20,000 to 25,000 spectators. They get that extra push and enjoy the atmosphere. At clubs that play for an average of 2,000 fans, the difference is somewhat smaller. “
Club has not yet found an ideal replacement for Wesley.
One of the points where things can be improved for the national champion is in the front. “That is not only today’s problem. After Wesley they went looking for an ideal replacement and they still haven’t found one”, Ceulemans remarked. Although he also thinks it is a matter of trust.
“A striker needs even more confidence than a player in any other position. If you change striker every two weeks and he doesn’t bring it, he will soon lose confidence. I would leave someone for five or six weeks. If he does not bring it, nobody can say afterwards that he did not get his full chance “, said ‘de Caje’.
The player who is giving Club some ‘schwung’ these days is newcomer Noa Lang. The Dutchman is appreciated by Ceulemans. “He gets chances every week and is already on a few goals, including that nice bicycle kick from last weekend. He comes from Ajax, so he has that technical baggage and that training. It is a talent and he can still grow a lot. . “
