Royal Antwerp FC played a good match in the Champions League on Tuesday. Yet the troops of trainer Mark van Bommel returned from Porto with a defeat.
The supporters of Royal Antwerp FC really appreciated The Great Old’s performance in Porto. Despite the defeat, the team showed up and played the entire match for the win. So some light in the tunnel, although the verdict with 0 out of 12 still remains very heavy.
Analyst Marc Degryse also saw some bright spots among the players. Senne Lammens showed that he has good hands and feet. “Zeno Van Den Bosch, in turn, does not yet have the presence of Alderweireld nor does he have a good long ball, but he did not fall through the ice against Taremi and Evanilson,” said Het Laatste Nieuws. “He must have learned that in Europe you have less time to build up. That his speed of action has to increase, and that you have to see the solution more quickly.”
And then there is 17-year-old George. “Only 17 years old. Against one of 40, Pepe, and another giant, David Carmo. Well, congratulations. Ilenikhena took up the fight, played with courage and showed enormous potential. He will be good, there I am I am convinced. Those 6.5 million euros will not be wasted money.”
And that will generate the necessary money. “After two or three years in the Belgian league, George will earn Antwerp a serious amount of euros, because don’t forget that he is in the most difficult position, right? George now has to take some of the burden off Janssen in the coming weeks, which will make them both better. .”
