Coach Hein Vanhaezebrouck had to re-watch Anderlecht points left. After the loss at Cercle Brugge, has purple-and-white only 1 in 12 of them. Also for Vanhaezebrouck there was not much good to write it down. “It was always just too hard, too far, just don’t.”
“I felt that we started”, began Vanhaezebrouck his analysis. “We had full control until the first outbreak of the Cercle, where we immediately score a goal swallow. We let surprise us and suddenly we were behind. A little later, that corner kick that Gerkens beautifully finished. The if ever are right. We still had a few kansjes in the first half, but there was always something not good. Always just too hard, too far, just don’t.”
”In the second half we grab that second goal far too easy,” says Vanhaezebrouck. “It was a deserved penalty kick, I was immediately seen from the sidelines. What I then saw, was the least of the whole match. Our response was not good enough. Perhaps it was this, together with the match in Eupen, where we have still a half very well played, our most deserved defeat.
