Michael Verschueren was Tuesday welcomes his new playmaker Peter Zulj to the press to be able to imagine. The general manager of Anderlecht in the coming week and a half, the purple-white core to strengthen. “Especially in front, we look forward to opportunities”, he noted.
With the return of Kara Mbodji, and the transfer of Peter Zulj is Verschueren moment, but to two newcomers. “That’s right,” says Verschueren. “But there is still confidence in the players that are out there. We’re not going to have a whole new team. We are still working with a few files. An attacker can retrieve is the priority. It can also be more than one striker, if at the end of the mercato is a good opportunity for it.”
The new attacker seems to be essential, without a healthy Landry Dimata, that Sunday in Ghent was missing with a slight injury. Officially going to be a slight knee injury, but Verschueren refused to further communicate about the player. “I respect his privacy. We go as a club not to further communicate about the nature of the injury. The player can do that if he deems it necessary. A player must also fit in his head. Without him we are at the forefront, of course, a problem. But I do not expect that he long out.”
On the outgoing side hopes Anderlecht are still some unnecessary players to be able to let go. “We have samengezeten with the board and there is a list created by players who may leave, ‘ explained the general manager. “We are now going to consult with the concerned players and their agents to see what is possible. I can, of course, no one oblige the club to leave, they all have a contract. Or guys like Sanneh, Saief, appiah notes and Vranjes on that list? Players who are on their position currently, but third choice, must pay their own conclusions and realize that they better leave. When Sanneh is not the case. He was not in the base Sunday, but he is close to the basiself. In the case of Vranjes is a departure is the best solution. It is in his case not to his qualities, but to some extrasportieve incidents.”
What the basisspelers respect, Verschueren, in principle, not open for a transfer. “In an exuberant bid may, of course, there is always someone to leave, but, in principle, be basisspelers not sold. We have in the market a clear signal is given that our game is not for sale.”
