OH Leuven supporter clubs have released a statement that claims they will boycott the fan day on the 26th of December unless Marc Brys is relieved of his duties. As reported by Het Nieuwsblad, the supporters have stated ‘As long as Brys is not fired, we will maintain our boycott. If the English members of the OHL board do not respond to our demand, we expect to hear this directly from them. If the OHL board does not comply with our demand, other actions will follow’.
OH Leuven are linked to Leicester City, with players like Kamal Sowah having gone from England to Belgium via the link. However, very few players have been developed for the Foxes through the connection. This season the side have struggled, picking up just two wins from 10 games. They have only collected nine points in that time and sit third bottom, just above Westerlo and Kortrijk.
Defensively they have been one of the worst sides, conceding 19 goals. After they picked up their first win on the 1st of September against Kortrijk, the side then picked up another point against Gent and a win over Mechelen. This certainly lifted some pressure off of Brys, but two defeats in a row against Standard Liege and Cercle Brugge has seen pressure return to the head coach.
Brys joined the club in the summer of 2020 after they had gained promotion the previous season to the Belgian top flight. In the three seasons he has been in charge the side have finished 11th twice and 10th once.
