Chair Carl Hoefkens falters after a draw and whistle concert

Club Brugge has not been able to avert the dormant crisis. The national champion played a 1-1 draw against Oud-Heverlee Leuven in the Jan Breydel Stadium on Monday. Ferran Jutglà (44.) converted a penalty kick in the end of the first half. Deep into injury time, Nachon Nsingi (90.+4) brought the visitors alongside.

Especially coach Carl Hoefkens was under pressure after Wednesday’s cup injury against STVV (1-4). His team didn’t get off to a scorching start in a match that got off to a slow start. On the stroke of half-time, the blue-black took the lead after all. Buchanan went down in the box after contact with Mendyl. After consulting the images, ref Bert Put pointed to the penalty spot. Jutglà poked in the penalty kick. OHL did not record a single goal attempt in the first half.

After the break, the visitors threatened. The leather ended up at Maertens after a free kick from Kiyine. Mignolet saved his shot. Patris’ rebound turned Meijer in front of the line. Moments later, a deflected ball from Nsingi bounced just wide of Mignolet’s goal. On the other side, Nusa saw a kick go just wide with his shin. Jutglá decided on Cojocaru. Hoefkens had to watch with regret in injury time as a shot by Schrijvers stuck with Mata. Nsingi was well followed and pushed the 1-1 against the nets. A lashing concerto of whistles followed for the blue-black troops. After the whistle, Hoefkens immediately disappeared into the players’ tunnel. Many supporters immediately left the stadium. There are now serious doubts whether Carl Hoefkens will still be on the bench with the team from Bruges next year.

Club Brugge remains fourth in the standings with 34 points, 12 points behind Racing Genk. The leader plays a game against KV Kortrijk at 6:15 pm. OHL climbs to eighth place with 26 points.
