“The trainer is not under pressure’

The polonaise is a treurmars become. Marc Coucke (53) had its entrance at Anderlecht completely different was proposed. Europe and the cup are already gone, how should it proceed?

IstanbulDe defeat against Fenerbahçe cut off there heavy in. At the airport of Istanbul dripped the disappointment is still the face of Marc Coucke. First wanted the Anderlecht-chairman no interviews to give, but suddenly, he changed his mind. “What my feeling is? You may choose between bad and very bad.’

The European switch-off with 1 12 in a weak group, is the downright shameful?

“What Anderlecht until now showed, is just more than insufficient. That earn this club and our fans. The defeats in Trnava and in the cup against Union undermine everything.”

Has Anderlecht not just low quality?

‘Honestly, we thought that this core was armed on three fronts to fight. We were very ambitious, but there is no constancy in it. The only steadfastness that we see, is that this team each match a weak moment. Also against Fenerbahçe, we are back with our nose on the facts. There are too many weaknesses in this core.’

Your coach will blame it on the inexperienced and very young selection.

“The only consistency we see is that this team each match a weak moment”

‘That is a part of the truth. We pay some dues, but it goes deeper than that. Sometimes we play good football, eh. At Fenerbahçe, we had to the rest sixty percent of possession and we had control, but it is not a boxing match where you have at the end can win on points if the opponent does not knock out correct. In football you need goals to make and therefor we are missing a punch. And as soon as we’re giving up a goal to swallow, drops everything as a pudding in each other.”

Your trainer is so under pressure, as I understand it.

‘No, no, no. The trainer is not under pressure. Nonetheless, we in-depth analysis go through a lot of conversations. It is clear that I ingredients wrong to be successful at this club and I want to know what those ingredients are.’

With whom will you all talk?

‘Internal and external calls. I also want to speak with people who have a lot of football experience and the history of Anderlecht know. Sometimes they have a different vision.’

You mean icons like Van Himst, or Zetterberg…

‘When legends come to visit, I grab always the chance to in depth for that people to talk, yes.’

Insert the hand in your own bosom? You decided yet on the composition of the core?

“Since I was the new chairman ben, there’s been a lot of changed in Anderlecht. I have been busy with all sorts of things around the club, but the base product remains, of course, football. Week after week, everything must be at the service of that 90 minutes on the turf. Many people have done their best, but on the field, is currently not out. That is a sin.’

Those that the transfers did, Luc Devroe. Accuses you tell him something?

“Once again: everyone did his best. Luc also. The core is composed with much higher expectations, but the result is disappointing. Though I think some still need some time to grow.’

Like Sanneh, the man of 8 million?

“I’m here, no individual reviews. As a team we have just an urgent need referentiematch. A result which we can build.’

Everyone verkeek also you competitiestart with 12 on 12. The euphoria was too large.

“But no. When you the season starts with four victories, but in the clouds? That’s part of football. Fortunately, we have then that the twelve points to get caught, otherwise were we in the league now even further from home.’ (cynical chuckle)

You are going cast of actors to speak for the match of Sunday against AA Gent?

“That we will yet see. That game we should absolutely win. Then we will close the first half with 30 points, and that is acceptable. We have only the league and we have now the maximum out of it.’

And what if you don’t win of AA Gent?

‘We do not have 30 points, hey.’

But then there will be consequences?

‘Anyway, there follows a thorough analysis. Everyone speaks now about transfers in January, but we are only at the beginning of november. The current core needs until the winter break to prove that there is more in it than what is there now comes. It must be a replica of times. Until January we will see match by match.’

Go in January than millions to spend if you already have so much money spent in the summer?

“Oh, with the Financial Fair Play Anderlecht no problem. We’ll see. Football is a strange industry. If you are in a company, even a bad month to have, than to put the heads together and start again. But in football, you can you such bad campaigns’t afford to. There you are, every day in the spotlight.’

The title is now an absolute must for Anderlecht?

‘Hola. I went correct to say that it is almost time for this interview to finish and with this question, you have me totally convinced. But we remain ambitious.’
