‘Bye bye Roofe: this is the best transfer of this summer mercato’


Kemar Roofe left Anderlecht. He’s going to play for Glasgow Rangers. According to Anderlecht follower Pieter-Jan Calcoen, that is an excellent thing.

“Anderlecht must be satisfied that it manages to sell Roofe,” Calcoen added The last news. “Firstly because he weighed too heavily on the wage budget. Roofe collected between 2 and 2.5 million euros annually in the Lotto Park, making him one of the big earners in the selection. Now that RSCA has to save, his departure is a stroke of luck. Bye bye Roofe: this is the best transfer of the summer mercato. ”

Moreover, Roofe brought little added value. All in all, Roofe seldom reached the expected level, he was a miscast of Vincent Kompany. The player-manager urged sports director Michael Verschueren at the time to attract the crowd favorite of Leeds – hence the insane conditions – but internally admitted that he expected more from his friend. ”

Now the younger strikers will have to get up. ‘That is more than ever the path that Anderlecht wants to follow: giving products from the youth academy plenty of opportunities and supplementing them with players with a growth margin. Wouter Vandenhaute looks with healthy jealousy at Club’s business model, where Izquierdo, Danjuma, Wesley and other Nakambas could be sold with a lot of profit – and after sporting success in the Jan Breydel stadium. Inefficient Kemar Roofe does not belong in that working method. ‘
