Jesper Friedberg certainly did a good job during the Mercato. The Danish sporting director has put in place a solid core. RSC Anderlecht are certainly not favorites to win the title, but they are an outsider. Friedberg managed another impressive goal.
Tribble and company are gone
Friedberg has let a lot of players go. Since January, he has managed to remove big earners such as Wesley Hoedt, Hendrik van Crombrugge, Lior Rafaeloff and Adrian Triebel from the payroll. Anderlecht allowed a number of players to leave.
Despite the transfers of players such as Kasper Dolberg, Ludwig Augustinsson, Kasper Schmeichel, Mats Ritz, Luis Vazquez, Maxime Dubet and others, he was able to achieve a goal. The wage bill went accordingly No capital A decrease of about 20%.
This was also necessary, because these costs had been affecting the club’s budget for some time. Meanwhile, Anderlecht’s total loss will amount to just €10 million, meaning the club is gradually regaining its financial health.
But the 20% drop was until Thorgan Hazard arrived. The 30-year-old Belgian was an opportunity and a last-ditch effort was made to get it. His total salary amounts to 1.8 million euros. Anderlecht want to offload two more players in January to reduce their wage bill.
Benito Raman and Amadou Diawara together earn a total of €3 million per year (1+2) and could leave in January. They no longer feature in the club’s plans after failing to impress. In terms of price/return, the picture is not right for them.
