Anderlecht sees Dutchman debuting: “I am very happy and proud”

Bart Verbruggen is overjoyed with the opportunity that Anderlecht-trainer Vincent Kompany gave him. The eighteen-year-old goalkeeper was allowed to debut against Club Brugge under the bar.
Verbruggen debuted not in a meaningless practice game, but in a match in the playoffs. He didnt see that coming. I knew I had been doing well for a while now, but you dont expect to make your debut in the first game of the playoffs at Club Brugge. But its not like it scared me either. As a goalkeeper, you have to be ready when your chance comes, says the Dutchman to De Cceit.
Verbruggen collected two countergoals, but does not look back on the match with a bad feeling. He received congratulations from his teammates afterwards. Well played, they said. That was nice to hear. I also got good reactions in the club.
Verbruggen isn
t exactly on a pink cloud after his debut. I am very happy and proud, but I am also someone who is immediately working on the next step in his head. And thats more contests.
