There are enjoyable moments to debut as the Anderlecht-coach. Fred Rutten may be his first match at AA Gent not to lose or threatens RSCA off the top six to fall. Stress. Especially because a driver Adrien Trebel (knee) are normally not ready to play touch. Happy landed asset Peter Zulj at Zaventem. If that wedstrijdfit, the Austrian may already after one workout to the bin.
It is now two weeks ago that Fred Rutten was appointed as the successor of Hein Vanhaezebrouck. In that time blew the Dutchman Anderlecht new life. He is already popular with his players because the workouts are fun: less running gear than with Hein and more with the ball. Shorter workouts also. Rutten opts for an approach à la John van den Brom, and that makes for ambiance. “I look to the positive atmosphere in my group,” said the trainer. “We want to maintain a good performance in Ghent. Although our season is not saved if we do win and also not completely lost if we go under.”
Still, Anderlecht under pressure. It is now fifth and a defeat is Play-off 1 again in danger. Rather than aim for a good football wants to Rutten now first bet on a good organization. “The important thing is that we points. I am a new coach no Tita Tovenaar with a baton waving and everything goes crescendo. That takes a while. We watch Gent so if a European away game where we aren't naive football. We have the people now, not entertain.”
The Dutchman will opt for a viermansdefensie and seems to be a preference for real backs. Therefore make lost sons Obradovic and appiah notes a realistic speelkans and should Saelemaekers a little worried. He is not in the top slide. Najar seems to be the ideal right-winger and as a right back is Saelemaekers not defensive enough. “I'm going to still nothing is lost”, continued Rutten. “My arrangement is for 99% in my head, but is not completely finished yet.”
Since Bornauw to cope with a knee injury is Kara the defensieleider. The largest twijfelpunt is still on the midfield. That should definitely be against Gent in the balance sheet is constantly maintained. Youngster Edo Kayembe scored already good points as a lieutenant of Kums, but Trebel becomes, in principle, not fit. Who's going to than as the deepest midfielder took office?
I experimented on training, but Gerkens does not seem the ideal man. Bakkali, Morioka or Verschaeren than but? Perhaps the ideal scenario, however, that gain Peter Zulj directly can play. Only arrived that only yesterday in brussels and he will have a one time only been training for. Itself is the Austrian not keen to immediately to jump in, but I closed it. “I see how fit Peter is and what he can teach, but there are still other options.”
After his nude photos on Facebook look Ognjen Vranjes is much better from a new employer. “I saw a bird's eye view a few pictures of him pass through”, concluded Rutten. “That was amusing. (grins) I'm going to now no definitive conclusions about Vranjes. I gave him this week or a hand, but he is still sick. Now, only the match at the Gent.”

Peter Zulj (25) arrived yesterday at Zaventem. After his transfer to Anderlecht was playing point guard is still a few things to handle in Austria. At Anderlecht is the number 27 it's ready. He can straight away game against AA Gent?
Peter Zulj – wide, smiling under his black cap – was a bit surprised that he is yesterday, was met on his arrival. Maybe learn Belgium him Sunday on the field of Gent. “Gosh, I don't know,” he says. “In terms of timing, that is short, eh. I expect it earlier next week (at Eupen, ed) . All true, however, that I profile answered that Anderlecht was looking for. This emerged from a conversation I had with sporting director Frank Arnesen and trainer Fred Rutten.”
Yet it had Zulj almost for the Italian Empoli chosen. “But Anderlecht plays each year for European football, and I know Ivan Santini is still of when he was at Red Bull Salzburg played in 2008. This is the perfect step for me. In addition, I hope to really make a difference. You will see that I have a good left and a good vista. I can a man turn off and try my luck in front of goal. That brought me quite a few goals and assists. Hopefully I pull that line through at Anderlecht.”More about RSC Anderlecht Anderlecht launches hotline for brokers to Fred Rutten for a baptism of fire in Anderlecht: “I am not a Tita tovenaar, now prevails the result” Peter Vandenbempt: “Luc Devroe was not now, but at the airport of Istanbul, the train pushed” Adrien Trebel sharp for his team mates in Anderlecht: “Not enough work for Hein Vanhaezebrouck”
