The search for a new coach continues. John Van Den Brom decided to stay in Vitesse, so his name can be taken off the list. The Mauves are now focussing on Co Adriaanse, Fred Rutten, Gianfranco Zola, Ralf Ragnick and Luigi de Canio
Remarkable: former Chelsea coach Villas-Boas also postulated for the job. Though his salary demands are too high for Anderlecht. He wants to earn up to 3 million per year, while Jacobs didn't earn more than 500.000 euros.
