We are not kidding with instructions at FC Brugge. Friday at a press conference, the coach of the Belgian club announced sanctions for Mbaye Diagne, guilty of missing his penalty against PSG Wednesday in the Champions League.
Corrected at home two weeks earlier (0-5), Brugge FC was almost snatched a point Wednesday at the Parc des Princes, as part of the 4th round of the Champions League. Finally beaten 1-0, on a Mauro Icardi goal, the Belgian club got a penalty in the last quarter of an hour. A boon spoiled by Mbaye Diagne, who wanted to concretize himself the fault caused by Thiago Silva but ran into a Keylor Navas vigilant in the Parisian cage.
At the end of the meeting, well aware of having missed the boat, the Senegalese striker on loan from Galatasaray cracked a message of apology on social networks. "I made a big mistake. I want to apologize first to the coach, the captain, all the other team members and of course the fans"Attention that was not enough to appease his coach, Philippe Clement, who returned to this fact of Friday at a press conference.
For not having respected the instructions of his coach – namely to leave the famous penalty to the captain of the team Hans Vanaken – Mbaye Diagne was just sanctioned. "He will not appear in the selection for Antwerp (Sunday in Jupiler League, ed), and I will decide in the coming weeks or months of a possible return to the team. There will also be a very heavy financial penalty."The man is however prolific since the beginning of the season, with four achievements to his credit already in six games played.
