The Impact of Kevin Mac Allister’s Absence on Union SG’s Play-Off Performance

Union SG couldn’t have had a worse start to its play-offs. The absence of Kevin Mac Allister appears to be increasingly important.

Stress from the play-offs, physical and mental fatigue: everything has already been written to explain Union’s decline. But the absence of Kevin Mac Allister is also an important factor.

Union is now five games in a row without a win in the competition. Three in the Champions’ Play-offs and two in the regular season before the play-offs had started. The Argentinian defender had to drop out of those two games due to a hamstring injury.

The loss of Mac Allister should not be underestimated, especially now that a strong opponent follows every week. They also noticed this at La Tribune.

“There is a lot of talk about what the Union board has done well in terms of attracting players, but they are going wrong in two defensive positions. They are missing a winger and a central defender. Since Mac Allister is no longer there, it has been a disaster.” said Swann Borselino.

An opinion that Philippe Albert supports. “Ross Sykes, both defensively and offensively, is disastrous.” On Sunday there will be a new opportunity for Union against Club Brugge, the team in form.
