Tahith Chong sparkles in first league start for Club Brugge

“What a great move for Chongy,” enthused Academy player performance manager Les Parry. “He’s gone to a team at the top of the league whey they can relax, play their football and express themselves a little bit more. It’s difficult when you’re in the middle of the league and one of the first things you look at doing is not being beaten.

”That changes the whole outlook on the game so he found it a little bit difficult to get minutes. The decision was taken by our manager to try to move him on and Brugge came up. I think everybody feels it’s going to be a good fit.

“He does need football. For some of the younger players, the ones less experienced than Tahith, playing isn’t the be all and end all – especially on their first loans. But, for somebody like Chongy, he’s played a few games for the first team so it’s more important that he plays football. The hope is he’ll play a lot more now and we can almost guarantee that he will play more than he did in Germany so it will be a good move for him.”
