Cercle Brugge’s Polish goalkeeper Radoslaw Majecki returned to action against Kortrijk and kept another clean sheet. The on loan Monaco man has been in form this season and is looking ahead to the final three matches. In an interview with Het Nieuwsblad, the 23-year-old said ‘That kick in Eupen hurt quite a bit, but all in all the recovery went smoothly and I am ready to lead Cercle to the top eight in the three remaining matches. This group deserves that and is ready for it’.
Majecki, who has made a habit of saving penalties this season, picked up an injury after a nasty challenge from PSG loanee Djeidi Gassama which went unpunished. The keeper continued until half-time before it became clear that he was in no fit state to continue. In his place, the side have relied on Brazilian goalkeeper Warleson. Despite some strong performances from the second choice, Majecki was back against Kortrijk. When asked about returning to the side straight away, the keeper said, with a smile, ‘I have never doubted that. I think the ranking is clear and I am the numero uno’.
Cercle have three games to try and force their way into the top eight and qualify for the play-offs. They face Antwerp, Sint-Truiden and relegation threatened Zulte Waregem in their remaining fixtures.
