Loïs Openda was crowned match winner in the 1st match of the final of the play-offs for European football against AZ (2-1). 5 minutes before the end, the Belgian striker made an effective effort and a few minutes later he got a crowd change in GelreDome. So he said goodbye. “Great to end like this.”
Openda is leaving Vitesse. After 2 seasons on a rental basis in Arnhem, he returns to his employer Club Brugge. “Glad that I still got that substitution. That is very special, so I could see everyone because I quietly went to the side,” Openda described at ESPN his change.
‘I want to end the season in style’
“This is good for me, but we are not there yet. AZ is a strong team and it will be difficult in Alkmaar on Sunday. We have to continue and bring the same mentality. It will not be easy but we play to win, or in In any case, we want to play a draw. This way we can end the season in style with a qualification for Europe.”
Openda was the man of the match with an assist and a goal
