Despite a double goodbye, Johann Wallem says goodbye with a bitter feeling: “Things have happened that I cannot accept” | Women’s Super League

“It was the perfect season for Anderlecht,” Johan Wallem opened the door after the cup final win over the Standard. “It’s good, but it also hurts that it’s over.”

After one season, Walem chose to draw a streak under his tenure as T1 in the RSCA Women. He remains silent about his motives: “I am a person who can take a lot, but this season a few things have happened that I cannot accept.”

“The past few months have been very difficult and the work has been difficult,” says the coach. “There are a lot of people who have said things behind my back, but I always put Anderlecht first.”

Tessa Walart also shared her insights into Walem’s departure. “I think it was very difficult for him. I think his eyes are now open to how women’s football works.”

With this, the Anderlecht star player referred to the tactical training sessions that the coach quickly threw in the trash. “This was not possible simply because of the difference in level between the players,” Wallim said. “I gave them some directions on each line in order to consolidate control.”

However, the former Red Devil is not bitter. “This is only the beginning of professional women’s football. I think we still need time and resources. There is enough quality in Belgium.”

What does the future hold for Johan and Alem? He concluded, “I’m leaving now, but it was a really difficult choice. I don’t know what’s coming next. I’m always looking for the next challenge.”
