The Belgian club fell to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Dortmund earlier this week, but were without Nigerian striker Emmanuel Dennis for the match for a seemingly bizarre reason.

Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws has reported that Dennis walked off the bus when he was told he was not allowed to sit where he pleased.

Brugge manager Philippe Clement revealed that the 23-year-old was left out for disciplinary reasons, but did not go into detail.

"Dennis is fit, but not in our selection," Clement said, according to the Daily Mail.

"He didn't follow the club's rules, that's all I want to say about that.

"I prefer to concentrate on the players who are available to me."
