RSC Anderlecht rose to number two in the Jupiler Pro League standings. However, Brian Riemer’s team suffered a setback.

RSC Anderlecht has experienced a decline in results in recent weeks and Jesper Fredberg does not have to look long for a cause for those problems, which seemed to mainly lie with goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

“Because there was a stupid break,” Fredberg is very clear in Het Laatste Nieuws. “As a result, the rest of the team has also taken a step back. So it’s not just Kasper. Few players have reached the level we hoped for since the restart.”

The sporting coach of the Purple & White would like to say a few things about Schmeichel’s transfer, especially about the high expectations that existed with his arrival.

Too quick to criticize Kasper Schmeichel

“Not many goalkeepers in Belgium have such a reputation and that experience. However, Kasper has had to adapt. His start was difficult – Dupé did well, even though he was not yet as match fit as he is now and still had to get to know our way of playing football.”

The criticism of Schmeichel was great and that was much too soon for Fredberg. “If I’m being strict, Kasper has conceded one goal so far that he shouldn’t have – that ball in Leuven. In addition, he has proven in his last three games in 2023 that he is a good goalkeeper. One who scores points for Anderlecht.”
