Odense. On Saturday evening, FC Copenhagen lost 1-2 to OB, and the status is now that the Copenhageners have lost five matches out of nine possible in the Super League. It is extremely critical if you ask FCK’s captain in Saturday’s match, Nicolai Boilesen.

– People have to go home and look at themselves in the mirror. The bottom line we delivered is so frighteningly low and it is not worthy of this football club. In any case, it was a scandal, says a clearly upset Nicolai Boilesen.

When a club is in crisis and delivers scandalous performances, it often happens that the coach is threatened with dismissal. However, the FCK defender would rather focus on the squad.

– I know that it is difficult to fire an entire team in the middle of a season, so I know that the arrow points to the man outside the chalk lines.

– But when the bottom level is so frighteningly low, each man must take responsibility, look at himself in the mirror and see if he wants to be here and if he contributes what he has to, says Boilesen.

The man in the hot seat, Jess Thorup, is not too worried about his future at FCK despite another disappointing performance.

– Why should I go and be worried? I was born an optimist, and I focus on what I can do something about, and that is working with the squad and looking at the next game, he says.

The fact is that, with Saturday’s defeat, FC Copenhagen is further away from first place in the 3F Superliga, which is the club’s goal. Thorup also admits that FCK have to scrape together a lot of points if they are to defend the Danish championship.

– We don’t make things easier for ourselves. We are well aware that we have to put together a team, and then we have to talk through the game, says the head coach.

After Saturday’s defeat, FC Copenhagen is still in sixth place in the 3F Superliga.
