This is how Peter Vandenbempt adds Sporza that at Antwerp people first thought of another trainer. “The first choice was Hein Vanhaezebrouck”, it sounds. He should have provided more attacking football at Antwerp.
However, an agreement with Vanhaezebrouck was not reached, so Leko became the trainer. “Offensive football is also what Leko stands for and why he was chosen”, says Vandenbempt.
Vanhaezebrouck’s return to Belgian football remains to be seen. After his resignation from RSC Anderlecht, the trainer took a sabbatical and started working as an analyst. He is also inactive for several months due to an operation.
