Club Brugge legt nieuwe grasmat voor Play-off 1: “Huidige liet niet toe om profvoetbal te spelen, afwachten of Cercle zal bijdragen”

Club Brugge substitutes this week are felbesproken turf in the run-up to the Play-off I. That has Roel Vaeyens, athletic coordinator at blue-black, Monday let was achieved in the kalendervoorstelling in the federal building in Brussels.

“The old turf is dependent on the weather conditions by the end of this week. There will immediately be a new natural grass to be laid”, stated Vaeyens. “We have chosen a field that is at least qualitatively good enough for the play-offs. 50 days are still ten matches played in the Jan Breydel (matches Cercle Brugge counting, ed.), in Belgium, there is no mat so heavily used. It remains to be seen, or Cercle Brugge will contribute financially. The conversations are still ongoing, but we couldn’t wait and had to take our responsibility. The current turf does not allow professional football to play.”

On the first match of Play-off I is on 31 march in the Jan Breydel to the Battle of Flanders against AA Gent on the program. Four days later the people of Bruges on a visit to Anderlecht. “I certainly would not say that Club Brugge is the big favorite is. Club is one of the favorites. We go for the highest, as every football club.”

Club Brugge ended the regular season Sunday with a false note. For own supporters went to the team of Ivan Leko with 1-2 down against Excel Mouscron. The champion barrel Play-off I with a backlog of four points on Racing Genk. “Obviously we are disappointed after the loss against Mouscron. There is some efficiency”, according to Vaeyens. “Over the last few weeks we had, however, worked well to the shrinking of the gap with Genk. Now we need four points to get, which isn’t to be underestimated. And the other four teams, we may certainly not write off. Every club in Play-off I, want at least European football.”
