After a difficult start with Standard, Karl Hofkens has managed to bounce back. However, Hofkins realizes that there are still things that can be improved.
Standard have had mixed results recently, but still defeated two top teams in the tournament, Anderlecht and Club Brugge. “If I had been told that we would win 8 out of 12 matches against Brugge, Anderlecht, Mainz and Westerlo, everyone would have signed up to it. But this cannot happen just by beating Brugge and Anderlecht, that is not enough. We have to do it.” “To make progress,” Karl Hofkens said during a press conference.
Hofkins, who arrived last summer, took charge of a team going through a period of change. He spoke meaningful and positive words about his group of players. “This is the best group I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, both in terms of players and coaches, and in how we work together. Everyone is growing together, competing together, daring to say things to each other. That’s the stuff.” What I really appreciate and love is when players talk to each other to help each other out.”
It’s extraordinary to be in our position
“It is a long-term project,” he continued. “I’m very satisfied with the way we’re working. We’ve been playing together for two months since the transfer window. It’s exceptional to be in our position, which means we’ve done well and are making baby steps. We’re not there yet, but I like the way we’re working.” “With it.”
