Ariel Jacobs quits his job as trainer of Anderlecht. He decided, together with the management, that not renewing his contract would be the best choice for him and the club. Chairman Vanden Stock reacted emotionally.
"I never worked with a trainer like him before. We never had any problems and I would have liked him to stay." Though Jacobs is not popular anymore with the fans. And a few players in the group feel like they didn't get enough chances this season.
According to board member Colin, Anderlecht will look for a foreign and experienced trainer that could help the club in their European ambitions.
Christoph Daum will not replace him though. The former Brugian trainer quit his job. But Club Brugge and Daum agreed their former trainer cannot join Anderlecht. If he does, Daum will have to pay a fine of one million. Brugge already appointed Leekens as their new coach. This means that a job as federal coach is open. Something for Jacobs maybe?
