RSC Anderlecht have signed Kasper Schmeichel in a summer trade. For many, an incomprehensible move by Jesper Friedberg.
It was a strange surprise when Anderlecht announced the arrival of Kasper Schmeichel. The Purple & White had already brought in a goalkeeper this summer in Maxime Dubet, and he immediately put in a more than excellent performance at the start of the competition.
Remer announced in his press conference on Friday that Dube will play against Kortrijk on Sunday, because Schmeichel was only at Anderlecht for one day.
“As an outsider, it seems that this was a move that was not necessary for the exhibition. It’s that Danish connection, isn’t it? But if you think: ‘We still need a goalkeeper…’ Maybe they saw the weaker sides in Dobe during training and started to have doubts.” They just have to solve the problem,” Van der Elst said clearly in Het Nieuwsblad.
The expectations for this season are huge at Anderlecht. “If it doesn’t end well, there will probably be a lot fewer Danes at Anderlecht next year. With a core like that you have to compete for the title. Not just hanging around in fifth place, or playing games where you wait sixteen years, as it is.” In Genk, if you get names like that, there will be no more excuses.
And then Van der Elst comes up with a powerful statement. “You’re Anderlecht, aren’t you? Now I’ll say something they don’t like to hear at the club, but Anderlecht is simply the biggest club in Belgium. The pressure to achieve results after last year’s 11th place is so great that a change has now been made and they are no longer targeting young visitors. Now it’s up to Rimmer.
