In an interview with Het Nieuwsblad, head coach of OH Leuven Marc Brys spoke of his dissatisfaction with the transfer window. The experienced head coach was adamant that the club needed an extra striker, with a move for Benito Raman having been worked on during deadline day. However, the striker was closer to moving to Sint-Truiden than Leuven but his wages meant that he ended up remaining in Brussels.
Brys said ‘I can’t possibly say now that I am satisfied, because then I would be lying’ when asked about the sides transfer window activity. The former Sint-Truiden head coach guided OH Leuven to the Pro League a few seasons ago, but this year he has found himself under pressure from a frustrated fanbase. Their poor start to the season did not help matters, with many fans feeling that his time at the club should come to an end.
However, their 3-0 victory over a winless Kortrijk before the international break certainly helped to ease the pressure. Their next fixture will certainly be trickier than against the leagues bottom side. Gent have titled ambitions and were able to keep hold of both Hugo Cuypers and Gift Orban, leading to many believing that they could be the favourites to take home the trophy next spring.
