Hein Vanhaezebrouck does not agree that so many youngsters from Anderlecht are called up to the Red Devils every time.
KAA Gent has launched a new podcast called stropcast. Trainer Hein Vanhaezebrouck, among others, was a guest and he criticizes the selection policy of national coach Roberto Martinez.
“If you call up Verschaeren three years ago when he just came to beep. If you call up Debast after five matches, he has not even played with the promises once. That is unimaginable. Debast is a good player and a talent , but to call him up after five matches.”
“Anderlecht are among us, hey. If they were in the lead now, I would say: ‘okay, wow’. That is interesting for a club, isn’t it. As a Red Devil, your value is multiplied by two or three. I think it is way too striking, people should think about that. If Samoise is selected now, then his value will definitely go up to two. It may not be for me to say that, but I think it is way too striking. Again, because it not the first time.”
