It remains to be seen what the coming season will bring for Standard. Last season, it finished disappointingly fifth and reinforcements weren’t added this summer. However, a new coach came, as Michel Preud’homme waved off and Philippe Montanier came in his place. The Frenchman will immediately have to do without a holder.
The Rouches start their season on Saturday with a home game against Cercle Brugge, but The last news knows that Standard will not be able to count on Obbi Oulare for this. The striker is on the sucker with a hip injury and will not get fit in time. Felipe Avenatti is already certain of a basic place at the start of the competition.
For 24-year-old Oulare, however, this should be the season in which he can finally perform for a whole year. The past two seasons, he has occasionally shown flashes of his qualities at Standard, but he was mainly inhibited by injuries. As a result, he still only played 24 times for the Rouches.
POLL: Will Oulare finally explode this season?
