Jürgen geril

BrusselHet is not so difficult to find a drug that cancer cures. In football, there is only one way to recover from a crisis: goals. The leaflet did warn for side-effects: relief, joy and a warm feeling inside.

But Anderlecht took the last few weeks especially bitter pills, such as the European defeat on the field of Spartak Trnava. That undermined this Europa League campaign, because now, RSCA already are the very best to win. Start with 0 to 6 or 1 to 6 is strictly prohibited. “It will be a difficult match,” says Hein Vanhaezebrouck. ‘Dinamo is the Anderlecht of Croatia, and played Fenerbahçe away with 4-1. But if we want to play in the group, winning is a must.’

Dimata is still young

Easy to say for a team that in its last seven matches, but one time won only four times, scored nine goals and grabbed. “If we score more, we also go the pressure on our defence and goalkeeper relieve. Now knowing that any mistake would be fatal. We are working hard on it and I saw it this week in training already have more balls fly in. That was before some no longer the case. Forget not, for example, that Dimata is still young. He has qualities, but needs to learn with press handle. Then get his goals back.”

“Not only our strikers need goals to learn to make. The problem is not with Santini, who will always score”

Hein Vanhaezebrouck

Coach Anderlecht

Vanhaezebrouck explained everything in detail. On Tuesday had the players to almost two hours of theory. ‘I work anyway detailed and correct always. We just need more goals to learn to make, and that is true not only for our strikers. The problem is not with Santini. That will always score.’

The Croatian striker sat next to Vanhaezebrouck at the press conference. He struck in the beginning of the season seven times touch, but scored in september against Standard. ‘Pressure? Who not to can with press must not be a professional footballer, ” said Santini. “It is a matter of inches and even that one ball falls, it follows the rest.”

But in the meantime, the supporters and chairman Marc Coucke impatient. Hein Vanhaezebrouck was yesterday, exactly one year coach at Anderlecht and he is the first coach in years that have a negative goal difference: 69-created goals and 72 goals. ‘Now, I’m no balance. That you have journalists done well. I focus on the match against Zagreb.’

Santini scored already

A new defeat against Dinamo would Anderlecht really in the doldrums, pushing and Vanhaezebrouck in a difficult position. “I hope that our work in training will pay off. We have a déclic. If that narrow header of Santini against STVV within had fallen, there was this week in the press a lot less enthusiasm. But well, we should not be doing.”

The coach may, however, go up to the fact that Santini in 2011 with Zadar in the Croatian league all scored against Dinamo Zagreb. “One of my most unforgettable goals’, found the striker. ‘Dinamo was better than now, but we won with 2-1. I scored from a free kick and got a yellow for taking off my shirt. Dinamo has me already a few times polled, but I always refused. First succeed abroad. Hopefully I can later with Anderlecht show that the choice was right.’
