Jelle Vossen: We have to keep giving everything

Zulte Waregem have just three games to save their season. The side are currently second from bottom and three points from safety, having gone not won a game since January the 18th when they beat Anderlecht 3-2 away. Striker Jelle Vossen, speaking to Het Nieuwsblad, still believes that the side can stay up. The former Genk and Club Brugge striker said ‘I’ve seen very crazy things happen at the end of the season before and that’s why we have to keep giving everything. We simply owe that to everyone who cares about this club’.

34-year-old Vossen has scored nine goals in 28 league games for Zulte Waregem this season, making him the sides joint top scorer with Zinho Gano. The experienced forward is also coming up to 100 games for the club, with 35 goals in that time. Vossen has always been a strong performer in the Belgian Pro League. In 193 games for Genk he scored 95 goals, while at Club Brugge he played 141 games and scored 48 goals. His record at Genk saw him earn a transfer to Burnley after a season with Middlesbrough on loan in 2014/2015.

Zulte Waregem’s last three games are against Charleroi, Eupen and Cercle Brugge. Eupen are the side just ahead of Zulte Waregem by three points. Weeks ago the club decided to part ways with head coach Mbaye Leye as they seek a new manager bounce to keep them in the Pro League.
