Club Brugge lost two expensive European points to Besiktas last Thursday. Kasper Nielsen then fired mainly, with the midfielder responsible for the equalizer with a dramatic pass. However, it seems that he has no intention of giving up on Blau Zwart.
Despite the tremendous control in the second half, things went wrong against Besiktas in the final minutes. Substitute Nielsen agonizingly surrendered the ball in midfield, after which Cenk Tosun gave the visitors an undeserved point.

His agent, Zuhair Al-Saqqal, also confirms that the midfielder wants to change his situation. “Despite the difficult start, the club still sees him as an important link. He wants to rectify this quickly. He will be a match-winner in the near future,” Kasper said immediately after the match. “It looks promising.” Now let’s wait and see if he can put those good intentions into action on the pitch…
