BrusselLuc Devroe is still on crutches after his scooterongeval. With his good friend Johan Plancke when he rode in yesterday morning unsuspecting to Anderlecht. Marc Coucke arrived only in the afternoon and not much later Devroe told that his last day had been.

Punishment from Coucke. When the billionaire last year, Anderlecht bought, was Luc Devroe one of the first to he notified in confidence and took. They had success in Ostend and his athletic director had the core of Anderlecht screening. Two hands on one belly.

Not for Dante

But there were soon cracks in the relationship during the first transfer. Anderlecht shouldered his core as agreed, and left players with heavy contracts to leave. Suddenly asked Devroe a lack of leadership wired, especially in the defence. Therefore, in consultation with real estate agent Didier Frenay, the proposal placed on the table for the Brazilian Dante Bomfin, ex-Charleroi and Standard, but also six years with Bayern Munich and 13-times Brazilian international. Dante could away from the French Nice, and was affordable. Moreover, he could the young, and the pressure on his shoulders.

The resignation is perhaps very mercilessly, but when a company director is no place for sentiment

Devroe got a not. With his 34 years was Dante too old and he had no subsequent resale value more. Coucke would rather a younger player and pressed by for the Gambiaan Buba Sanneh. There they made the president a prestigetransfer by 8 million euros to pay for it. Devroe found that too much, for the time being broke the Gambiaan still no pots.

And so there were a lot of discussions with Anderlecht this summer. Of course, did the athletic director also bad transfers. So is Abazaj a failure and weighs Makarenko too light, but maybe had Devroe what should be given more time. It was his first mercato in Brussels and transfers for Anderlecht is not so obvious. Moreover, they are not all bad. He also got goalkeeper Thomas Didillon, striker Landry Dimata and left Elias Cobbaut. All three, they get praise.

For Devroe was the constant search for balance between himself, Hein Vanhaezebrouck, and Marc Coucke. It was also agreed that Coucke the sale of Ostend had to arrange and that, therefore, Knowledge Musona and Antonio Milic of the kustploeg met had to be. Those transfers were forced choices.

On Waregem

I will Devroe now for all the bill. He felt for the first time, wetness on 17 October, when Anderlecht went to visit Zulte Waregem and Coucke the misnoegde fans addressed. “We had a lot more expected from the transfers,” she said. Devroe felt in the wind. That feeling was only stronger when he after the European elimination was aside for Michael Verschueren.

Therefore, the dismissal might be merciless, but when a manager is simply no place for sentiment. Marc Coucke could even say goodbye to his own shadow if he doesn’t follow.

Luc Devroe left Anderlecht yesterday afternoon to 15.45 hours, with Johan Plancke. That may perhaps remain. For Devroe, there is no way back. He started as a broker at the office of Patrick De Koster.

Anderlecht gets Austrian playing point guard

The Austrian Peter Zulj (25) must be the new hub of Anderlecht be. Playing point guard signed a contract for 3.5 years, purple and white pay 2.5 million euros to Sturm Graz. He can have Sunday to play against AA Gent. Zulj put yesterday’s medical tests at Anderlecht and posed for the photo. “He is a real creative,” said Michael Verschueren. ‘He scores and gives assists. At the beginning of this week was he went to Empoli for medical tests, but he chose quickly for us when we clapped at the door.’ According to insiders, had Anderlecht Zulj, last summer, already on the radar, but then took he was still 6 million euros.

Lokeren reached, as expected, reached an agreement with Anderlecht over the lease (without option) to the end of this season, Knowledge Musona (28). Lokeren takes on the full pay of Musona, so that he may game against Anderlecht. (jug)
