Tony Bloom was Thursday in the Joseph Mariënstadion proposed as the new chairman of the Union. “I will as soon as possible promotion to the first class of Belgium,” showed the Briton, who made his fortune with gambling collected, is ambitious.
“I’m very excited to be here. I have been searching for a new club in Europe. This club has eleven league titles a huge history, plays in a historierijk stadium and has warm supporters. That reminds me of my first club, Brighton & Hove Albion. That has me so an overhaul. Therefore, I will the Brussels traditions in Union also respect and honour. Other Belgian clubs? No, those slopes, I’ve never really explored.”
A brexit will not quickly follow, the 48-year-old Bloom. “Stability is the only sound basis for a football club. I am here for the long term. The objective is to as quickly as possible, to promote to the highest class. But that will be difficult. All opponents in 1B are well matched. But I will not moeien with the policy. I hope as many as possible to be present during competitions.”
The opening match of the new season on the field of phd candidate Lommel late Bloom still pass. But for the home game in the renovated Joseph Mariënstadion against OH Leuven will be the new chairman of the party.
Sports director Alex Hayes made the balance for the start of the new season. “The core of coach Luka Elsner is as good as around. We still have a month the time for us to strengthen, but a lot of new players, we will no longer pick up,” said Hayes, who as yet foreign and unknown players recruited. “I do not believe that players with experience in the Belgian leagues have an advantage. Football is a universal language. The players we get, will be to adapt to the league.”
