Extra time draws the line after another pass from Vanhaysbrouck on the player: “Very painful for Depoiter”

Extra time draws the line after another pass from Vanhaysbrouck on the player: “Very painful for Depoiter”

He does not spare at all with controversial statements. That's how you describe Hein Vanhisbrouck in the press conference after the draw against Antwerp. Striker Laurent Depoitre in particular – who missed the chance to score the winning goal – was heavily criticized. “It's humiliating,” says the overtime panel.

The statement didn't go unnoticed in extra time either. Philip Goss puts the pertinent question on the table: “Is this an easy goal to score?”

“It's all about timing,” says Wesley Sunk. “He doesn't expect, whereas you have to be there on time as a striker. Scoring a goal is harder than everyone thinks, because you can't learn timing.”

Peter Vandenemppt also believes that Depoiter assessed the situation too late. He added: “He only accelerates when the goalkeeper misses the ball, instead of anticipating it.”

Well, Vanhisbrouck has a point that his player can – and perhaps should – do better. But wasn't there another way to explain it?

“I have to be honest: I think Heine is good at this,” says Frankie van der Elst. “I love him so much, but here he is hurting Deepwater. It really hurts me. Don't do that.”

“You shouldn't mention those things about Goots and Janssen. I find it very hurtful to Depoiter…” and then Vandenbempt concludes: “It's insulting.”
