Wouter Vandenhaute is no longer the executive chairman of RSC Anderlecht, the club announced on Saturday. The decision was taken at the RSCA board of directors meeting on Friday.
“Wouter Vandenhaute has decided to take a step back and convert his term as executive chairman into a term as non-executive chairman. He will leave the day-to-day management to the two CEOs, Kenneth Bornauw (Non-Sports) and Jesper Fredberg (Sports),” Anderlecht said in its press release.
The club also specifies that Jean Kindermans, whose collaboration seemed to be coming to an end, will continue to work with the Academy. “The members of the board of directors unequivocally endorse the importance of the youth academy for the club and the merits of Jean Kindermans, as well as the need to continue to innovate. As part of this ambition, the club intends to continue working on Neerpede’s future with Jean Kindermans. »
Vandenhaute succeeded Marc Coucke as club president on May 28, 2020.
With a record of 23 points in 19 games, on the eve of a trip to Club Brugge, and after having called on three different coaches, Anderlecht only occupies 11th place in the D1A.
