“On paper, this team should compete for the title”: Anderlecht’s amazing transformation in one year | Jupiler Professional League

There was no chip left for the team that finished 11th. Under sporting director Jesper Friedberg, Anderlecht received a major facelift last year. “The places on the base are going to get very expensive,” says analyst Wim de Koonink about the purple-to-white transition.

The starting team a year ago under the leadership of Felice Mazo.

Anderlecht then and now.

Among the starting line-up that was favored a year ago under Felice Mazeau, today only two pawns remain.

Only Zeno Debast and Jan Vertonghen can still count on a starting role. For the rest, Purple & White has bought plenty of quality with well-known names like Thorgan Hazard, Mats Rits, Kasper Schmeichel, and Kasper Dolberg.

“The question for them is whether they can still show the quality that their name evokes,” says analyst Wim de Koonink.

The eleven names expected for Anderlecht next season.

The team is fighting for the title

“On paper, this is a team that should be fighting for the title,” De Koninck had no hesitation when he saw a rejuvenated Anderlecht.

“They have assembled a brand new squad with many big names. However, with the caveat that these boys are no longer club holders.”

So they all always found an opportunity to revive their careers with the Belgian record champion.

“And their former employers are happy too, because these players are a big burden on the budget.”

The fact that the desired players remain speaks of unbridled ambition in Brussels.

Not only newcomers offer quality. Anderlecht also stuck with its strong holders.

“The fact that Amuzu and Debast – two boys in whom there has been some interest from other teams – are still there reveals their unbridled ambition this year in Brussels.”

“Then you also have Patrice who is not pregnant due to adaptation problems and Verschauren also has to return after his injury. Places are currently being decided Very expensive. Especially since Anderlecht can fully focus on the competition and the cup.”

DrTherefore, expectations are very high. The thirst to compete with the Belgian top after a bad season may be greater.

“So far they haven’t played great football, but the results are there,” says De Koninck. “We have to wait for convincing football.”

“It’s up to Brian Rimmer to make it complete.”
