Scholz (25) plays since 2013 in Belgium. First at Lokeren, that he took over from the Icelandic are wide-ranging Stjarnan Gardabaer and since 2015 for Standard. Blue-black and Standard put the negotiations earlier still stop after the financial gap between both clubs is too big it turned out.
“I’m already 5 years in Belgium so I from the first row can see that Club Brugge is a great club”, says Alexander Scholz in a first reaction. “I am very happy for the team to be able to join. I know, for some players, so I played in Lokeren together with Hans Vanaken and I know Guillaume Hubert from my time at Standard. Also Ivan Leko and Rudy Cossey I of course know well. I wanted the chance to go to Bruges with both hands grasp. Finally, I also want Standard thank you, it was not always obvious times but nevertheless, I will to the Club and the fans still have good memories to keep.”
Refaelov is still in the picture
For Lior Refaelov seems to be a reverse transfer in the making. The Israeli was already previously offered at Standard, but now shows in Liège interest. A transition from Refaelov is separate from the deal Scholz.
