Oleg Petrov and Paul Mitchell speak exclusively with Goal.com

An exclusive Cercle interview with Oleg Petrov and Paul Mitchell appeared on Goal.com's website on Friday. In the conversation, which was held on April 20, Petrov and Mitchell talk about Cercle Brugge's sporting strategy, the team's good season as well as the future.

Goal.com is the largest online football publication in the world. Cercle's impressive season in various areas has prompted them to focus on our team. Cercle was not only the youngest team in Europe last season, bu the Groen-Zwart were also able to deliver some of the best physical output in Belgium, evolving into the best pressing team in the country.

AS Monaco has been the main shareholder of Cercle Brugge for 5 years this month. After promotion to the top flight in 2018, the Groen-Zwart finished 10th in the Jupiler Pro League this season, their best position in more than 10 years. “It has taken time to set up our structure, to get the right players and to position ourselves in a sporting sense, but I am very happy with what is happening,” said Oleg Petrov, CEO of Cercle Brugge.

Paul Mitchell, AS Monaco sporting director: “Between Monaco and Bruges, we want to modernize and develop the strategy that exists between the two teams, but at the same time give Cercle the opportunity to move forward. We definitely want to be a dynamic and challenging team that generates enthusiasm among our fans.”
