What exactly does “a search for a new Head Coach has commenced.” mean?
Roland calls Jose Riga on speed dial, concedes on a couple of points, agrees to give him a proper contract after last time, and hey presto. The search for a new Head Coach ends 18 hours after it started.
Lies, lies, lies.
Yes Riga was popular before, he saved us from relegation, although I thought that may have been Karel Fraeye, but he was in charge for just 15 games. Who is to say he would have been found out like Peeters and Luzon? I can’t even include Fraeye because he was a fraud, but although Riga will be welcomed, he is not the answer. It changes absolutely nothing. Riga deemed not good enough 18 months ago, and sacked or forced out by Duchatelet three times, also needs to think about his self-esteem.
I note also that there will be no press conference. Riga hardly spoke to the press last time, and I think there was rarely a midweek media meeting. We actually ‘got to know’ Peeters, Luzon and Fraeye a lot better than Riga, because they did do interviews. This has to change with Riga this time around, that’s if he last’s long enough in the job. Riga’s last 4 jobs have seen him oversee 16 games, 15, 16 and 23.
This whole circus has to stop, and we need to up the protests. I just hope the players find humility, remember how lucky they are to be getting paid to pay football and that they are privileged to wear that badge on their chest. Then we can support them whilst we do everything in our powers to get rid of Katrien Meire, no doubt behind yesterday’s press release putting Wim de Corte and Jason Euell in charge of Saturday, and the biggest criminal of them all, Roland Duchatelet.
As for Duchatelet’s quotes, his first utterances to his customers for over a year, about making errors in recruitment and trying to address them in January. Well they are laughable.
On with the protests.
