Ivan Trichkovski is not in the plans of Club Brugge manager Juan Carlos Garrido, and the Belgian club is looking to sell or loan Ivan to another club.
Ivan Trichkovski had a miserable first year with Club Brugge as injuries and poor form, when healthy, derailed any chance of consistent playing time. Ivan looked nothing like the player he was at APOEL which led to his eventual transfer to one of the biggest clubs in Belgium. Trichkovski made just 19 league appearances last season, only 5 of them being starts, and scored one goal. The coach that brought him to Club Brugge, Georges Leekens, was fired midway through last season after a disappointing start, and Ivan was then never able to convince the new manager, Juan Carlos Garrido, of his qualities. Trichkovski dealt with a number of injuries which made it especially difficult to win trust among his coaches, teammates and fans. Ivan’s lack of playing time also affected his play with the Macedonian national team where he was a shadow of his former self.
During the summer preparations, Trichkovski has been present in training but not playing in most friendlies as Garrido has focused on other players that he will be counting on for this upcoming season. Club Brugge is currently in England for their preparations and Ivan has been a healthy scratch in the past couple of friendlies.
With Ivan not in the plans of the manager, Club Brugge has made Trichkovski available in either a permanent transfer or a loan. If Ivan wants to restore his once promising career, a move out of Club Brugge would be best for all parties involved.
