Brian Riemer and Anderlecht take extra blow for clash with Genk – Football News

This weekend there is a tough match between KRC Genk and RSC Anderlecht. The Purple & White will then try to hold on to their leading position in the Jupiler Pro League. That will have to do without a number of strong holders.

There will be no more talk of Thorgan Hazard in 2024, which has now been confirmed by coach Brian Riemer. And there is more bad news to report by the Danish coach of RSC Anderlecht. He indicated this at his press conference.

Yari Verschaeren has also not yet been fit for the meeting with Genk. He was one of the possible replacements for Hazard. “He is close to his return, but because of his history we do not want to take any risks.”

After the meeting against Genk, there are still six matchdays in the play-offs. Yari Verschaeren can certainly still be of value to the Purple & White, an extra reason not to take too many risks right away.

Gattoni as a replacement for Debast?

To top it all off, Anderlecht also has to make do without the suspended Zeno Debast. Federico Gattoni seems the most likely replacement for him. Brian Riemer himself left little doubt about that.

“Federico has experience and can handle big matches. We will be able to use him well,” he was clear. It is not yet certain who will take over Thorgan Hazard’s role, but it will more than likely be Francis Amuzu.
