AA Gent is serious this season: chairman Ivan De Witte showed all his ambitions and that also puts pressure on coach Jess Thorup. He wants to ensure a good season.
“Last year we were second and we were the best scoring team, with more than two goals per match on average. That Hein Vanhaezebrouck says that the corona crisis came at the ideal time for Ghent? Of course I do not agree with that. I agree sure we had achieved something great in those finals. ”
Also next season, Club Brugge will be the team to beat, according to Thorup. “I think many clubs are going to try Bruges challengen. Anderlecht performed below his level last season, maybe it will recover. But you also have Charleroi, which did incredibly well. Antwerp, which already turned out with some transfers. Standard. Genk. ”
