The Brussels coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck hidden his ambitions. “Winter is always the goal, I do not participate in a competition to simply opponent are”, responded QTY Friday after the draw.
“I do a competition to get as far as possible, to touch and the first goal is to overwinter,” said Vanhaezebrouck. “You can stay in the group third, but we don’t want to. You can also be second or first. For me, it was honestly not so important which teams we lots. The are two well-known names with Fenerbahçe and Dinamo Zagreb and than the less well-known Slovakian team. I am satisfied. I wanted to make large movements to avoid and on that front we have been lucky.”
