INTERVIEWS After missing the first few games, Marco Kana was in the starting lineup for the second time in four matches yesterday. "I still had some small problems physically," the midfielder said that after the game against Seraing. "Now I feel like I'm growing back to my best level."
"The end of last season was very tough and also now the preparation was tough," explained the midfielder. In his absence, Kana was replaced as a defensive midfielder by Adrien Trebel. He did a far from bad job. Does he fear the competition? "Adrien is my buddy. He constantly gives tips and also congratulated me after the match. He takes me under his wing, even though we are competitors."
For Kana, playing now is also different from last season. Then he played with Cullen next to him, now he is the only defensive pawn in central midfield. "That takes some getting used to, but I'm getting used to it. At the national team we also play like that and that does help."
About the match against Seraing, Kana was quite satisfied. "We started well. That's how we should start every game. The loss against Cercle was a big blow. This time we wanted to start furiously. I'm sure we can play like that for 90 minutes. On the other hand, we started after halftime with less intensity and concentration. So we allowed Seraing to gain confidence again."
