INTERVIEWS The Pro League asked their members not to leave for a training period abroad during the winter break. Most clubs seem to conform to that. RSC Anderlecht has already made the decision to train in Belgium, maybe even at Neerpede.
The current corona crisis is also a scourge for the football clubs in the first division, who now - again - have to play without audience for a while. After matchday 19, there is also a short winter break, in which many clubs go abroad on a winter training period.
That won't be the case for RSC Anderlecht, a decision that the Pro League appreciates. After all, there exists a danger that the teams have to go in quarantine after their return and the calendar is already very tight.
"We already had for a while two scenarios ready for the winter break", says Karel Van Eetvelt, "One for abroad and one for Belgium. The first was stroke of the list quickly. So we stay in our own country. We are now looking whether we could organize the winter trainings at Neerpede."
