Yannick Bollasie apparently can not be piorinated after his half-time spectacle against Zulte Vareghem: the congolese wing has shown beautiful things with interruptions and has to adapt to both his teammates and a new environment and to Belgian football If he had teamed up perfectly in his place, Bollasi could flourish at his own pace, trying to relax. This is obviously not the case – worse: we expect the player occupied by Everton to be the one who put Anderlecht back on track.
A Belgian system that is not adapted to the winter mercato?
"Whatever level we have evolved, we need time to adapt," said Bollasie after a draw on Sunday (0: 0). Which brings us to a peculiarity of the Belgian championship: the fact that teams have less time to integrate their winter recruits … at least in the classical phase.
The day remains after the winter mercenary closes seven days in the classic phase of the Jupiler Pro League. Simple comparison: in League and Series A there are 17; in League 1, 16; in the Bundesliga, 15; In the Premiership, 14. Add the ten playoff games and you will receive a comparable amount that allows the clubs in a convenient position to say: "It will be ready for PO1".
That was the case Lazar Markovic: Upon arrival, the Serb played only one game in the classic phase before playing seven in the PO1. Even without motivation and play as he walked, he had convinced everyone in his talent, as Anderlecht tried to return it last summer.
Carcella or Markovic?
But Anderlecht never shaken for the top 6 in the season 2017/2018. Mauves could afford to wait and reasonably expect Markovic to be an asset in the title race. There will be no title race this season if Anderlecht goes on like this: there will be no playoffs 1 if Yannick Bollasie needs "time".
Since there are only five last-minute matches (literally) to save his new club; Bolasie can not be Markovic, but it must be … a Mehdi Carsela. Carcela, who arrived in the winter of 2018, took Standard to PO1 (2 goals, 3 assists in the six games after his arrival) … but had the great advantage of knowing the championship and feeling at home. as soon as it arrives. Bolasie's adaptability will probably depend on the end of the Anderlecht season.
