“We had everything under control after taking a 2-0 lead, but quickly went from feeling disappointed (because the match had gone back to 2-2) to feeling magical. It is always nice to do this against Gent, they are a top team. To get six points against them is fantastic. It's only my first goal this season. Last year I scored two goals, but this one is worth much more because it gives us the win. As a defender I don't dream of scoring goals, but this is fantastic. Maybe I'll dream about it now (laughs). Do I have to describe the situation? As always, we defended from the front and I saw that Nardi would throw the ball out. Cuypers' control was not good, so I intercepted the ball. The central defenders turned and I took my chance and shot as hard as possible with my eyes closed. I think you saw from my celebration that I didn't know what to do. I'm happy to be able to contribute."
“We showed that we can do something against any team, we believed in it every second. We were constantly pushing forward. Today Daland stood out because of his goal, but everyone was really great. The coach also asks us to defend from the front and that has paid off. It's not because we haven't said we're going for the top eight that we don't have ambition. We are taking things match by match and trying to set the bar as high as possible. The atmosphere on and off the pitch is good: everyone pushes each other to go faster. The coach told us that he gives us guidelines, but that we are the ones who have apply them in the end. I myself just try to play my own game and keep my feet on the ground.”
After seven wins in nine matches under Miron Muslic, Cercle breaks for the World Cup break level on points with seventh place in the Jupiler Pro League, comfortably in midtable with 25 points.
Last Saturday, the Groen-Zwart won 0-1 at STVV: “Sint-Truiden turned it into a physical battle. After a more difficult first half, we had to adapt during halftime. We did that by making some positional substitutions with the intention of winning more second balls,” said coach Miron Muslic.
