No Antonio Nusa for Club Brugge at the Bosuil… and also not against Union next Wednesday in the cup. “It was a very hard week for him,” Ronny Deila realizes.
LOOK. Deila: “Nusa will not be in the selection”
“Antonio Nusa will not be part of the selection. And he won’t be there against Union either.” Somewhat within expectations, the Norwegian does not feel ready to take action in the coming matches. In consultation with Club, he will remain temporarily aside after his transfer to Brentford was put on hold for medical reasons.
“It’s been a very hard week for him and everyone. After everything that happened, Antonio needs some rest. It’s sad, but at the same time we look ahead. The positive thing is that we can still call on him this season.”
For Nusa there was a double blow. Not only will his transfer not take place for the time being, medical issues also came to light: “I think both are difficult for him. He has also traveled a lot and had many conversations. And then there was that sudden twist. We talk to him every day. He’s a boy we have to take care of. I hope to get the best out of him again soon. It remains to be seen when we will see the best Nusa again. If that doesn’t work this season, maybe next season.”
Teams are increasingly reluctant to play against us, but we have now reached a situation where we have to be more careful during the transition.
Club is already heading to Antwerp with full confidence, despite the disappointment against Kortrijk earlier this week: “It felt like a defeat, because we actually played a very good match. Teams are increasingly reluctant to compete with us, but we have now reached the situation where we have to be more careful during the transition.”
“Antwerp is a different game. We will go there as one army. We have a mission against a very good team. We want to show something and we want to show it from the first minute. The rankings? At the end of the day, we will get what we deserve. After the main course comes dessert. When they finally present the bill, we’ll see where we stand. We have not lost in fifteen matches and will never give up until the last match.”
