Ronny Deila: We want to be first in the group

Club Brugge Coach Ronny Deila said that they want to win the Beşiktaş match and come out first in the group.

Ronny Deila answered the questions of the press members at Tüpraş Stadium before the 5th week match of the UEFA Europa Conference League Group D against Beşiktaş tomorrow.

Mentioning that some of the injuries and suspensions in the squad are over, Deila said, “There are different players to play. Some of them have not been able to train yet, but they can still play. As a team, we want to show a good performance with the new players.” He commented:

Stating that their goal is to win, Deila said, “Our main goal is to be first in the group. We want to win this match and go to the next round. If we beat Beşiktaş, we will be first. They have a new coach and they have not lost yet. We want to advance in the league and Europe at the same time this season.” “That’s why we will be balanced in the selection of players.” he said.

Stating that the departure of the club’s general manager Vincent Mannaert was sad for them, Deila said, “He contributed a lot to us. We must say goodbye to him in a good way. He will stay with us until the end of the season. We can benefit from him. We will see how to fill his void during the season.” she said.


Speaking about captain Hans Vanaken not playing in the match, Deila said, “We can be successful without our captain. Hans is a quality player, but there are other players in our squad. We can put a new player in Hans’ position or change the formation.” made his assessment.

Expressing his views on the weather and the ground, Deila said, “I saw the showers outside. I don’t know how the ground is since I haven’t been on the field yet. I’m glad the match isn’t today. According to the weather, there doesn’t seem to be a problem tomorrow, but we need to be careful in training today.” He commented:


Club Brugge player Maxim De Cuyper said that they had an advantage over Bodo/Glimt in the race for first place in the group.

De Cuyper, who will play his 25th match with the team this season, said, “I want to enjoy the moment. I want to play as much as I can. It doesn’t matter how many matches I play. I just want to play for the team and do my best.” he said.

Stating that every player’s dream is the Champions League, De Cuyper said, “I want to go to the next level, but it is also a good thing to play in Europe on Thursday. I will also play in the European Conference League and enjoy the moment.” he said.

Stating that the match they will play tomorrow is important, De Cuyper said, “We will play for first place because if we come first, we skip a round. This means playing two fewer matches. We have an advantage over Bodo/Glimt for first place.” made his assessment.


The Belgian team carried out their last training before the match at Tüpraş Stadium.

The players started the training with warm-up exercises and practiced passing and catching the ball at the end of the section open to the press.
