Gift Orban was unhappy with his substitution against Seraing on Sunday, and has been slammed by section of the Belgian media.
Orban netted two goals and assist, but was irritated by the decision of the coach to replace him with Tarik Tissoudali, who is returning to the squad after seven months lay off due to injury.
Orban snubbed his teammates on the touchline as he was coming off and walked down straight to the bench.
His action generated divided opinions from the media.
“Will we still have to pay attention in this way to know how to manage everything and everyone properly? Somewhere I think that,” Journalist Filip Joos wrote in Extra Time.
“Gift Orban also knows that Tissoudali has been rehabilitating for seven months. He saw that boy coming from the gym.
“You can handle that a little warmer. It shouldn’t be a friend, it can even be a competitor, but still. After seven months in the rag basket, there is still a pat on the back.
Another writer, Arnar Vidarsson jumped in the defense of the 20-year-old, stating that, he’s only desperate to play more.
“It is not malicious, we know that. I always wanted to play, but in this situation after seven months of hard work. I would take it.”
“He’s just so pure in his emotion. Let him be who he is. Both in joy and in other things.”
