Anderlecht already let go of a number of players this mercato. The Purple & White said goodbye to Lucas Lissens. That makes sense, because he urgently needed to play for a first team.
Anderlecht let Lucas Lissens leave for Lyngby. Brian Riemer explained why. “Lucas is 23 years old and we couldn’t really help him to really break through. Leaving was already an option last summer, but that didn’t work out.
Time for other talents
“We can keep our Neerpede boys at the club for a certain period of time, but at a certain point they have to break through to us, or you have to let them go. Lapage is four years younger and is knocking on the door. It’s a matter of seeing whether he has the can take the next step. It was the right time for Lucas to take the next step. We didn’t want to deny him that opportunity.”
Moreover, space must also be made available at RSCA Futures for the next generation. Nunzio Engwanda and Ismaël Baouf are two young defenders who can take the place of Lissens, who played four times for the Anderlecht first team.
Lissens had another message for the RSCA fans.
