Reactions by Didillon and Vanhoutte after Cercle-KVO

Thomas Didillon emphasized that it is important to remain calm, as Cercle is in a period where the results have been disappointing. “0 from 12 and 3 out of 21 is not good enough, but we should not focus too much on the results. Just as we weren't on the table dancing after our good start to the season, we shouldn't overreact now that the results have been poorer. We must be aware of the things that are not going well. For example, I think that we gave away the goal too easily today."

“We have a good squad, with players who want to work hard and get better every day. The current run of form is disappointing, of course, but we have to deal with this as professionals and find solutions to our problems. Panicking in a situation like this will certainly not help us. ”

Charles Vanhoutte came on at the beginning of the second half: “I didn't see what happened to Johanna Omolo, but suddenly was told that I had to come on. My assignment was to press close down their forwards as much as possible, to put pressure on them and to link play as well as possible with our front two.”

“After the game it was very quiet in the dressing room, because things were difficult today. Oostende have a good press, we knew that, but they also left a lot of space at the back. We couldn't take advantage of that. We had played in a 4-4-2 for the first time. Positionally we were not bad, but we were too little aggressive towards the ball carriers. We were unlucky with Marcelin's header hitting the post, but overall we were not good enough today. We had a good start to the season and we cannot just throw it away. So the idea is now to quickly get to winning points. In that respect, it is an advantage that we will quickly go back to work, against Charleroi on Tuesday, have a chance to get revenge so soon.”
