Roger Vanden Stock has his dismissal given as chairman of the Pro League. That he announced at the meeting of the professional clubs on the competitiehervorming. “I step down as chairman of the Pro League. I am 75, it is time for something else. Someone else will have to do it from now on.” At the general meeting of 5 June should now have a new chairman be appointed.
This coming weekend is also the official transfer to Anderlecht. Marc Coucke will then take the scepter over at Anderlecht, Vanden Stock is then honorary chairman in purple and white. That acquisition plays a role in the decision of Vanden Stock, to quit as chairman of the Pro League. He has always shown at the hint of conflict of interest. That is exactly what the criticism is of the outside world on the acquisition of Anderlecht by Coucke and wants Vanden Stock, so distance of.
