Pinatar Fred Rutten (56) looks very relaxed. Anderlecht has three good training days a good internship in the Spanish Pinatar and Rutten gets slowly gaining sight of his group. “The positive dynamics in this selection that is larger than I had thought. Of course, no one here to sing and to dance after the first half, but there is a big hunger to do better. I had more negativity is expected.’

Therefore, asks Rutten are now wondering what went wrong. If he but a moment, watching the coach of the images of the previous matches of purple and white. “In the first half could Anderlecht seven games is not to win. Seven! If I duels view, had we not all need to lose. Sometimes we were better. What I want to do now, is the team a framework. A grip in which the players can always fall back on. We will certainly start with a viermansdefensie, because I saw that all the defenders himself feel better. In a 4-3-3 need guys to always have at least one these factors is below par and never by the lower limit to bags. That is the basis.’

Effective

Farewell, therefore, to driemansdefensie of Hein Vanhaezebrouck. Also, the time of complex tactical instructions seems to be over, because a lot of people in Brussels found that too difficult. “Oh, I make no criticism of my predecessor,” says Rutten. ‘The team should also look for the mirror, but I’m going to players not fast in boxes to push and say that they may not or should not. There will be a clear concept, but certainly creative players get a lot of freedom.’

‘Tough guys are often the best players. Why do I like energy in

All well and good, but one of the problems of Anderlecht was that this group to good was. That little personalities were on the table to knock if the wrong was. The return of Kara can somewhat remedy the problem. “When Kara arrives, then you think: There is someone. He is a leader that are important for Anderlecht already proved. That Kara sometimes quirky it may be, scares me. Tough guys are often the best players and therefore I put like energy. I experience such players are rarely as hard.”

Fred Rutten proved in the past already that he is the right chords. So said Jose Mourinho about Marko Arnautovic at Inter that he’s a big, unruly child of whom he was going crazy, while Rutten the rebellious Austrian just had to render it at Twente. “Yes, Arnautovic was a really nice project, hey. I was not fond of him, because otherwise, I sat here not now. (laughs) Memphis Depay at PSV also has such a reputation, but also that it ran smoothly. You need you some distress.’

Who knows will this Dutchman so even the derailed Vranjes back into line. Who is still home sick, but post sometimes pictures on Instagram. ‘Does he do that? Well, I now have no energy in men who are not. I have nothing to show.”

The biggest smile on Ruttens face there came, however, when we told him Marc Coucke is actually the most difficult guest at Anderlecht. That the president ever dare to in the dressing room, tactical guidelines. “We have a very enthusiastic president who is very sympathetic to the plight. But he will not be in the dressing room or it must be already very bad. The experience I bring from abroad, which I sometimes experienced that the whole management came in, the board took over and in their lingo, an explanation began to give.’

A lot of help from the top of the trainer is not strictly necessary, because he has a staff of seven assistants. The hotel is almost too small. ‘At this point, is that not too much. They can me info provide and someone like Pär Zetterberg speaks with so much enthusiasm about Anderlecht is that it is contagious. He has years played, and Anderlecht is in his heart. It is similar to my relationship with Twente. When I arrive there, I also have anywhere-access. It is true that I am my trainersjob at Anderlecht combine with a role as a consultant at Twente. That is not a paid feature, but if they call, I give my opinion. If I had been coach to the battle go as Twente promoted to the Premier league, is now not an issue. Perhaps, I’m 20 years at Anderlecht.’

Larger name

That last seem to be the supporters of the purple & white do not believe. They had a bigger name reckoned with a large list of achievements than Rutten. “Well, at Feyenoord, I also had the perception against which I stirred quickly. I fit into the profile that Anderlecht was looking for and now we need points. That first match at AA Gent will, of course, important, but that stands or falls on our season. We have nine matches to the play-offs just as a whole.’

Anderlecht weert brokers from spelershotel

Purple-and-white emphasises that it is not doing business with Mogi Bayat.

PinatarDidier Frenay, Gunther Thiebaut, Thomas Troch, Frederic Avellino, Peter Smeets, Daniel Striani, Nenad Jestrovic, Stijn Françis … The brokers are in Spain for the Belgian teams to visit, but only for Anderlecht, they are not just the inside and outside. “Our policy is clear,” says manager Michael Verschueren. “If an agent wills to see, he must make an appointment first and then we’ll meet outside the hotel. This is not because brokers now a bad name – there are also good – but we just want to be calm around our team.’

Verschueren thinks it is important because, it was said that Anderlecht again did business with Mogi Bayat –in suspicion in the file ‘Clean Hands’ – now, Kara has returned. ‘That is not true. A time ago I read in The Newspaper that Nantes Kara wanted to return it, after which I contacted the player. Kara confirmed to me that he was unhappy, and through his broker – mr Gilly to understand – we have negotiated a comeback. Only in the last resort moved to Nantes Mogi Bayat added. Bayat seems to have a good relationship with Waldemar Kita, their chairman, and represented so the French club. Therefore, we could not otherwise than together, but we remained neutral. Because let me be clear: Anderlecht does not do business with agents who are in suspicion. Only if another party it is our duty to those people to negotiate, we’ll do that.’ (jug)
