Many changes and savings cause concern among Anderlecht fans, CEO Fredberg and coach Riemer enter into a dialogue?
10 de January, 2023
The organizational chart at Anderlecht has changed considerably recently. The Dane Jesper Fredberg is the new sporting CEO and his compatriot Brian Riemer has been appointed as coach. The weak results and much-needed cuts have left supporters concerned. That is why the new sporting bosses of RSCA will soon receive a delegation of supporters to get to know each other and to discuss which direction they want to take with the Purple & White.
The initiative comes from the Danish duo themselves and was already established before commotion arose about the dismissal of youth director Jean Kindermans. The fans are also curious about which transfers are possible. Names such as wing attacker Viktor Tsygankov (25) from Dinamo Kiev and left back Maximilian Middelstädt (27) from Hertha Berlin are circulating, both of which are out of contract in the summer, but are they feasible?
Premiums are paid
Anderlecht have to calculate and count. RTBF even indicated yesterday that Anderlecht has not yet paid the premiums for European football and that the jacuzzi is no longer being heated. Well, it is true that the players did not yet receive bonuses for qualifying for the Conference League groups, nor for the points and the European wintering that were achieved in a group with Silkeborg, West Ham and FCSB, but agreements have been made about that with the team. The European premiums will soon be paid as agreed, but timing is crucial for financial-technical reasons.
The club doesn’t call it savings, any more than the non-functioning jacuzzi is a means of cutting corners. That jacuzzi is located in a slightly outdated part of Neerpede where the electricity occasionally fails and that is why the jacuzzi sometimes breaks down. Which is correct: Anderlecht moved all the staff who still worked in the offices in the Lotto Park to Neerpede last summer so that the heating in the stadium does not have to run during the week. As everywhere, some energy savings can be made.
