Peter Vandenbett: “Referees at Antwerp Bierschut didn’t make a good turn” | Jupiler Pro League

In his weekly analysis of Jupiler Pro League match day, football commentator Sporza Peter Vandenbempt focuses on the Antwerp derby between Antwerp and Berchot. He talks about the mediocre performance of referees, as well as about the heads of both clubs.

Hear Peter Vandenbempt’s analysis here

Peter Vandenbempt in a nutshell:

  • The referee team in Antwerp-Berchot did not do well.
  • It is especially bad that the club president questions the impartiality of the referee.
  • A lot of damage has been done in Antwerp and the club is not really going to improve.

“Unfortunate performance of the referee team”

Bierchut felt betrayed after the Antwerp derby and I’m afraid that may be true. It was another unfortunate performance by the referee team. If all this turns out to be detrimental to one team, you have a problem.

It was about a lack of consistency on the part of the rulers. There was little to be said about De Smet’s disqualification from Berchot, but why didn’t Seck van Antwerp receive a second yellow card when he was apparently deliberately kicking the ball against an opponent lying on the ground, after the whistle had already been blown? You don’t. Yellow packing.

And above all: why would the VAR intervene in one minor foul from Antwerp to reject a goal for Beerschot and not in the other – to award Beerschot a penalty?

Sometimes, as a judge, you can make human mistakes and can understand them, but that’s not really the case here.

The VAR can then say that he can’t see the friction between the goalkeeper and Sibawi very well, but that’s nonsense. And then, as a referee team, you had a huge impact on the outcome and you did a bad job.

Sometimes, as a judge, you can make human mistakes and can understand them, but that’s not really the case here.

So the rest of the snow fell. The atmosphere was great for example. Fortunately, because the match was very mediocre and football is very weak. Significant lack of quality on both sides, although there are a few exceptions, such as the Saba’i young man. But then it’s all kind of forgotten.

Bearshot coach Greg Vanderett discusses referee Nathan Verbumin.

‘Head’s hints are particularly bad’

I think Beerchot has questions about the impartiality of referee Nathan Verbumin, because he works for a company that sponsors Antwerp.

And Berchut boss Francis Franken included Operation Zero to justify his concern it was really bad. I don’t think Nathan Verbumin will come to give advice on sports nutrition himself in the Antwerp locker room or take to the field with the thought of pleasing a client of a company he also works for in front of everyone. This is unimaginable.

It reminds me a little of Paul Allaerts long ago, when – when he whistled at a Club Brugge game and made a mistake there – my employer Dexia was immediately linked to the Club, which was sponsored by Dexia. Then of course it stops.

In all seriousness, I find it very bad that the president of the club questions the integrity of the referee. He might criticize, he’s right, but no hint. By the way, he must be pissed off about VAR technology, because Nathan Verbumin has invited it to the screen once and not again. This is where the responsibility lies.

Rather than putting his energy into a potential investigation into the referee’s impartiality in the coming days, he’d better ask himself why his team, who can compete like Sunday at Bosuil, is obviously last and will go down later. This seems more useful to me.

Berchot was disappointed after the defeat to Antwerp.

The collision between the two halves kills the coach

The collision that occurred during the first half between Antwerp president Paul Gissens and Brian Brisky is very painful for the coach, he even fought.

A CEO or CEO coming in at half-time to scold everyone, including the coach, in the locker room is completely unacceptable, unprofessional, and counterproductive. Unless the Gheysens believes his endeavors have caused a transformation, that is, of course, possible too.

Paul Jessens is not alone in our football with this kind of antics. A while ago, a CEO of one of the major clubs came to express his displeasure during the halftime break.

We all know the story of Mark Cook, but he has long learned from his mistakes. It looks like Paul Gheysens isn’t yet. Even after the match against STVV, the connection has already begun. The fact that he came into the picture a few times yesterday with a glass of wine in hand doesn’t help with cognition either.

A CEO or CEO coming in at half-time to scold everyone, including the coach, in the locker room is completely unacceptable, unprofessional, and counterproductive.

“If you put Priske on the door, you can also set the dressing room upside down”

Editorial for coach Brian Presk to confront his boss and defend his players. He knows what the consequences could be. This naturally creates an unworkable situation.

If the disagreement between the coach and the grand president of the club is very frank on the street and the owner also seems to be shouting that the coach is leaving in front of everyone, then there is no turning back, I think.

Unless today’s president evaluates, separately from yesterday’s emotions and in consultation with his competent, sane and sober right hand Sven Jacques, what are the problems.

A lot of damage has been done at Bosuil and the club is not really going to improve.

And then they have to ask themselves whether the coach in this context can solve those problems in the short or long term and whether another coach in the short term – Sunday against Anderlecht – will do better with Antwerp.

And who would that be? If you now put Priske at the door, it would turn the dressing room upside down. Because, also thanks to Brysky’s resistance, he unequivocally sided with the coach.

Except, to illustrate the complexity of the problem, Ricci de Lat. He wasn’t already a captain and was replaced after half an hour. He didn’t think he was injured, the coach was.

Then, De Laet was very angry and immediately went home in what, as a real Antwerp man, is considered match of the year. A lot of damage has been done at Bosuil and the club is not really going to improve.
