Colin Cosmans's father delivers a blow to KAA Gent – Football News

Colin Cosmans was allowed to come on as a substitute for RSC Anderlecht on Wednesday evening. This was the first time he was allowed to play for the Purple & White.

Kasper Schmeichel remained in the dressing room during the first half of the match between RSC Anderlecht and Cercle Brugge on Wednesday, allowing backup goalkeeper Colin Cosmans to play his first ever minutes for RSC Anderlecht.

Cosmans has been playing for RSC Anderlecht since 2021. Peter Verbeke then took him away from KAA Gent. He was barely allowed to play six games in three years. He chose Anderlecht, even though there are teams where he could play much more.

“At 28 years old, financial aspects also play a role. What would you choose if you were only going to earn a third or a quarter somewhere? Moreover, the intention was always to play goalkeeper for a big club. Playing is one thing, conditions are another. And where better than Anderlecht? “The setting, the facilities and the atmosphere: all first class,” Father Philipp tells Het Nieuwsblad.

According to Father Kosmans, the turning point for KAA Gent was the Europa League preliminary round against Jagiellonia in 2018. “It rained hard in that match and Köln saw the Polish ball go out of his hands several times. But he kept a clean sheet and put away a good ball, so they won by 0-1.

But not everyone was happy with Kosmans. “Despite the zero, some seemed to think it radiated uncertainty. Then it was over. This is AA Ghent. A lot of good goalkeepers are brought in, but they don't get many chances. At a top club you get fired more quickly than You are expelled in KV Mechelen or Beveren.
