Steven Defour spoke to the Mechelen board, but… “I also have to live with the unchanged situation”

There are dark clouds hanging over Mechelen, but they don’t have much time to think about it at KV. On Wednesday evening there is again the cup match against KV Kortrijk. Trainer Steven Defour looks ahead with concern in four themes.

About the absent:

“Little has changed. Coucke will return from illness. Ngoy is also cured, but he continues to rehabilitate. Things are moving in the right direction with Bolingoli. He will soon be able to make minutes again. We will also keep Bijker and Mrabti aside.”

About his sharp comments to the board:

“It has been talked about, yes. But the situation the club is in remains unchanged to this day. I have to live with that too. How do I deal with that? I am not the person who has to make the decisions at the board level. That’s not my domain. I give my opinion on the available player material. That’s where it ends.”


About the cup match between two important league matches:

“We are in a period in which some titulars are hurt and we play many matches against direct competitors. And because of our defeat against Zulte Waregem, Saturday’s match against KV Oostende will only become even more important. We have to win that home game, no matter what. On the other hand, we also made the cup a goal, as always with KV Mechelen. Despite the many absentees, we will do everything we can to get to those semi-finals.”

About opponent Kortrijk:

“Kortrijk now plays football with a ‘Storck etiquette’. He has brought energy and mentality into the team. That translated into victories in difficult matches against KRC Genk and OH Leuven.”
