INTERVIEWS RSC Anderlecht and Antwerp kept each other in balance during the match. Both Fred Rutten and Laszlo Bölöni agreed that a draw had been more correct. But it is Anderlecht that returns home with the three points. "The step towards play-off 1 has been taken", according to Rutten.
The whole bench did a dance of joy, Rutten and Belhocine fell into each other's arms. The winning goal brought about an explosion of joy on the bench and in the visitors' section. The coach remains honest in his analysis afterwards: "You can not deserve it if you look at the game as a whole", Rutten is honest, "But often enough we have lost such a game unearned, now luck is finally on our side."
"When I started at Anderlecht, I knew we had a long way to go towards play-off 1, the first step is taken now," concludes the coach.
