“I’m confident that the team will be competitive soon and I hope to help them as soon as possible,” said the winger. “I still have to adapt a bit but I’m ready physically and mentally. If there’s pressure on my shoulders? I don’t really feel it but I’m used to it.”

In Anderlecht, the Danish player will find two compatriots with coach Brian Riemer and CEO Sports Jesper Fredberg. “Their presence was not essential in my choice. Anderlecht is a great club, which I have known since I was young. My decision was quickly made and I want to quickly add my stone to the building.”
Despite the complicated situation and important matches approaching, against Zulte Waregem on Wednesday and at Seraing on Sunday, Brian Riemer does not want to toast his new recruit yet. “His transfer was a great opportunity for us. Anders is a creative player, with a good shot and who makes his teammates better. I’m sure he can help us but we also have to be patient. He has just arrived and he hasn’t played since mid-November because of the long break in Denmark,” explained the Anderlecht coach.
