OTHER The news has now been officially confirmed by RSC Anderlecht: Robin Veldman will be the new coach of the U21. He comes over from Ajax where he also trained the youth teams. At the end of this season he will start his adventure in Brussels.
Veldman will train the Purple & White U21 from June 14, where he will be head coach. That place was open after Graig Bellamy moved to the first team to fill the gap after the departure of Nicolas Frutos.
“I have often seen the youngsters of Anderlecht at work at Ajax and Heerenveen, including at the Future Cup, where they often went far and where they already won. I have known their neat, attacking football and the international top talents such as Lukaku, Tielemans and many others who were already produced by the Academy for a long time. I want to get the most out of all that talent and help them take that next step to the first team. During a good conversation with Vincent Kompany and Peter Verbeke, I immediately saw that we are completely on the same page with our vision and enthusiasm. I am incredibly looking forward to getting started and preparing the next generation of guys that the supporters of Anderlecht love so much ", says Veldman on the club website.
