The deal was already up in the air at Friday’s press conference. “He’s a good player,” Rimmer said.
“I first saw him in action at Esbjerg U19s, when I was still coaching Copenhagen U19s. He was also on our radar at Brentford. Dreyer is a player who can decide the game. In Denmark he is highly regarded.”
The 1.74-meter left wing striker has already been active in many countries: in Brighton (England), St. Mirren (Sch), Heerenveen (Ned) and Rubin Kazan (Ross). He played with the last team last season, until he returned to Midtjylland due to the war with Ukraine.
In Kazan, he scored 8 goals in 14 league matches. This season in Denmark, he also has 8 goals in 16 matches. In the European League he played 2 out of 6 matches. With the addition of the trophy, he has scored 10 goals and 4 assists in 27 games this season. Midtjylland totals: 35 goals and 29 assists in 110 matches.
“This was a unique opportunity to bring in a player like Anders,” SPORTS CEO Jesper Friedberg said on Anderlecht’s website. Anders is a real team player, he is decisive and has many individual qualities.
“As an intelligent and hard-working player, he’s very good on the ball. He’s young, but already has a lot of experience under his belt. Above all, his qualities fit perfectly with the style of play we implement at the club.”
“We also got to know Anders as a person with a good mentality, which is also important to us.”
Dreyer played two matches for the Danish national team. Dane should help Purple & White out of the malaise in the coming weeks. The record champion is only 11 after 19 days of matches in the Jupiler Pro League. Anderlecht will play this afternoon at champions Club Brugge.
Yesterday it became known that Wouter Vandenhout has taken a step back and is now the “non-executive chairman” of the club. Kenneth Bornau and Jesper Friedberg handle the day-to-day management.
