It is drumming at the top of Belgian football and Club Brugge in particular does not intend to give up its number one position just like that.
That is why it was very wrong with Blauw-Zwart that Union almost became champion last season. After winning the title, chairman Bart Verhaeghe elicited the sour comment that Club Brugge should not compete against Union, but against mother club Brighton.
A sneer that everyone considered very bland and, above all, unnecessary. And that has also remained on the stomach at Union, as appears from an interview with Chris O’Loughlin, the sporting director of the Brussels residents.
“Apparently it’s easier to drop the Brighton name than to say we’re working well,” he catches up The Sunday off to Verhaeghe. But perhaps they won’t lose any sleep over this at Club Brugge, now that Union is no longer a title candidate.
