thumbnail Hello,

The Belgian manager was not at all pleased with Vincent Kompany's red card...

A somewhat shell-shocked Belgian manager Georges Leekens reacted to his side's second successive European Championship qualifying defeat by outlining his disappointment after the 3-2 setback to Turkey.

"This is a painful defeat," he told Sporza. "Yes, they had possession however they created no chances. We scored and also pegged them back with ten men. This is discouraging but we are not going to be disillusioned, as the team really fought for the result tonight."

Leekens went on to fire a broadside at the Slovenian match officials.

"Everything went against us. For the third goal we had all the bad luck in the world. The referee did not help us. Kompany had been pushed away right before his first yellow and as for the second, the referee was only too happy to give it."

Belgium travel to Kazakhstan next month needing to win after suffering defeats to Germany and now Turkey, leaving them pointless after two games.
