Bruges-coach counting on ’cynical’ Shaper

Mats Rits (on the left) and Ruud Molder (centre) warm up for the final training session of Club Brugge.

“We already have three games shown that our football is good enough and that we have more than one point to earn,” said the coach in Monaco. “We are our place in the Champions League worth, but were not properly rewarded for the delivered game.”

Bruges lost previously of Dortmund (0-1) and Atlético Madrid (3-1) and after the 1-1 at home against AS Monaco by one point. The coach knows that his team must win to have a chance to spend the winter in Europe. “We know that with less than a 1-1 here and it will be hard for the third place.”

The coach of Brugge against Monaco in the Stade Louis II does not have Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld, Emmanuel Dennis and Jelle Vossen. Leko hopes that his captain Ruud Molder after his place on the bench in the top match against Racing Genk extra motivated.

The Dutch international had in Belgian media disappointed responded. “I was happy with that response,” said Leko. “That is the response of someone who absolutely wants to play, of being a winner.”
