English mentor of Belgian Club Brugge Scott Parker announced that he would field a Ukrainian forward Roman Yaremchuk from the start for the match of the 20th round of the Belgian championship against Anderlecht (January 15), because his competitor Ferran Zhudzhla was injured:
“At first we were afraid that Zhujla had a very serious injury. But the x-ray came back positive, and Ferrand himself has a good feeling about it too. We will monitor his condition every day.
Yaremchuk will play on Sunday. It’s not a problem because I believe in him. He was under a lot of pressure due to the large amount of the transfer. I understand that too. He works hard and wants to improve.
I am looking forward to working with him. Yaremchuk can still play a big role for the team. Sometimes a player is judged without knowing all the facts. There were many obstacles, but the most important thing is to see how he copes with them. I was impressed before when we played against him, but now I’m impressed.”
