Kompany takes responsibility: “Should have done better as a coach” | Jupiler Pro League

Just like against KV Mechelen, Mouscron and Eupen, Anderlecht handed over a victory in the final phase. “This is the 8th point that we are so losing. But I take responsibility for this match. I set the bar very high for myself and I think that as a trainer I could have done more to help my team. “

“I’m not looking for excuses, I should have done better as a coach. I should have offered the players more solutions to properly control the situation. That is part of my growth process as a person and as a coach. From tomorrow I will start working on the players and make the team stronger. “

“The boys have already taken a lot of steps, our training is really great, but we did not deliver what we had to deliver on match day. The responsibility for that lies with me.”

“I don’t blame my players for intensity or commitment, I don’t think I can ever blame them for that. But we didn’t reach our level, that has to be better next time.”

“We told the players to stay calm with the 2-0 lead, but I blame myself more than the players for giving this away.”

“I have always progressed in life by being honest with myself and the others. I have also achieved a high level as a player by not looking for excuses and being honest with myself.”

“This can be compared to a team that does not score, even if it has all the capacities for it. There is also a mental aspect to it. We have to talk about this and learn from it how to handle these kinds of situations. This is nothing new, but we must stop this from happening. We must reverse the trend. “

Newcomer Matt Miazga says that the players are not going free either: “We are disappointed that we conceded 2 goals. We should have decided the game after that 2-0 lead, that is the fault of us as players.”

“But we must not let our heads hang. We have to see where we made mistakes and keep working hard on them in training. We have a good team and an excellent trainer, so I have no doubt that we can turn this around.”
