This January 31 was not very happy for standard fans. If his club did a great job at the time of attracting Alen Halilovic for a year and a half (with option to buy more), they especially regretted the departure of the boss.
With some anger for a good part of them. On one side, because the Congolese did not keep their word ("I will not leave this winter, even if the Real"), and on the other hand, because the president of Liège accepted an offer that they consider insufficient.
Part of a loan for three million, with an option to buy five million, Congolese are worth more? In some matches, including the last in Antwerp, the strong defender seemed to have been cut by the Premier League, and therefore was likely to go on winning. But their mistakes of marking and / or concentration, a little too frequent, probably did not go unnoticed. The old Mazembe player is not yet ready for the highest level.
The Leopard will leave a gap in the dressing room, that's for sure. In the field, their duels won with insolence and their little academic but technical and athletic ball games are also lost. Your decisive goals as well. But, in terms of defensive efficiency, will normal be the loser?
No reinforcements have been followed, but Michel Preud & # 39; homme can count on other players. Milos Kosanovic is waiting for his time, then Vanheusden stands upright. Laifis could also find the axis, and formed with the Imp the best defensive pair of the Pro League.
Cavanda or Pocognoli on the return of the injury, would find a place in eleven. Wonderful Bokadi, getting rid of her wounds, can also replace her compatriot, in a very different style.
The calendar was certainly not good, especially three days of a Classic, but no, this departure is not necessarily a disaster for the Rouches and their ambitions.
