Mark van Bommel is doing particularly well with Royal Antwerp FC in the Jupiler Pro League. An 18 out of 18 was booked. The coach hopes to be able to get a 21 out of 21 against KVC Westerlo.

Antwerp plays well at times, but can also win ‘ugly’. Van Bommel is not a typical Dutch trainer who necessarily wants to impose his will on the opponent. The coach talked about it The last news.

“The Belgian competition is simply difficult, more difficult than I had previously thought. In the Netherlands, as a top club, you sometimes go to a match where you are more or less sure in advance that you will win 2-0 or 3-1. is it mainly about playing nice football, while the approach in Belgium is different. Whether I am a bit of a Belgian trainer? I was born close to the border in any case (grins) “, he says.

In Belgium, the smaller clubs play in a very organized manner, while in the Netherlands they often give their all. It is therefore no coincidence that teams such as PSV and Ajax regularly win in the Netherlands with very heavy figures. That is much less the case in Belgium. Antwerp will take on Westerlo tonight, which has a mixed start to the competition with a 6 out of 18.
