With one victory, three draws and two defeats in the last six stages, Ladislau Boloni came to feel emotional for his position on the bench in Antwerp.
A situation almost unintelligible, given that, even after the last series of results, the team was 7th out of 16, ahead of the champion Genk, but also in front of a giant, like Anderlecht!
The Belgian press has written that in the event of a failure with the club leader Brugge, Boloni will be dismissed. And, beware, Club Brugge came to the match with Antwerp undefeated in the championship, with ten wins and three draws in the first 13 rounds!
Thus, when the table showed 1-0 for the guests, after the first 45 minutes of the meeting Antwerp – Club Brugge, there was, in fact, no surprise. And Boloni was practically about to be fired. Unfortunately, we will never find out the speech of the Romanian technician on the break, but, of course, he managed to mobilize his students. And they also fought for Bologna. The outcome? Mbokani equalized from penalty (50), and Mignolet's goal (65) brought the hosts fantastic victory: 2-1!
Antwerp got their first win since October 26 and climbed to 5th place with 24 points from 14 games.
Club Brugge, suffering the first failure of the current championship edition, remained leader with 33 points. The podium is completed by Standard Liege (27 points) and Gent (25 points).
