Brussels On a supportersavond said trainer Gert Verheyen recently that Nicolas Lombaerts in due time his chances would get. The defender of KV Oostende this season only in the basis for the bekerduel in Hoogstraten and fell in the league against Genk. Defender Goran Milovic is Friday suspended against Antwerp. A good time to Lombaerts again to play?

It need not be. After the suspension of Milovic may Verheyen also Brown in the defence and stretch, with a viermansdefensie football or The Bock a row achteruittrekken. There are multiple options.

The situation is, however, delicate. If Lombaerts now not playing, he feels no doubt even more to the side – and there is already tension between him and the kustclub. On the basis of it, is his contract until 2020 with an annual salary of more than 1 million euro. A legacy of Marc Coucke, who, as a millstone around the neck of Ostend.

KVO in a stranglehold

Lombaerts has until 2020 to a contract with a annual salary of 1 million euros, a legacy of Coucke

Verheyen gave previously that he always purely sporting choices. We believe him, but the player and his entourage feel yet also for financial reasons was set aside. Plays Lombaerts not at Antwerp, then that feeling will only strengthen and KVO perhaps even longer in a stranglehold held.

Oostende has the financial, after all, is not wide more since the departure of Coucke. Different brokers have already received the question or Ostend the commissions to which they may still be entitled later on, should pay for it. Sometimes it was even requested to have commissions to re-negotiate. There is also no budget for a new striker in January.

There would be more financial margin without Lombaerts, no wonder that the directors of his expensive contract wants to terminate. Only is KVO 2.0 not financially strong enough to unilaterally say, and the experienced defender at one time to pay. The situation with precious little speelminuten is Lombaerts also not inclined to do concessions and money to drop. He finds that Coucke him has abandoned and promises broken. The current impasse is the result.

Therefore, it is not unlikely that Lombaerts Friday just to kick off. It was obvious that Most of the past few weeks the boys chose which KVO future looks like Wout Faes, but now it seems better to make the situation even more complex. Sporty can, the former international who move to, it may be what goodwill creation, and he stands again in the window.

Because KVO must hope that Lombaerts to be more lenient, so that he will be for another club or open to a compromise to his expensive contract to terminate. Only then will KVO again breathe freely.
