In november 2012, Rudi Verkempinck (50) road cleaned up at Club Brugge, where he T2, subsequently, Adrie Koster, Christophe Daum and Georges Leekens was. The Lichterveldenaar followed Herr Daum in August 2013, Bursaspor, since recently he is his assistant at the Romanian national team. “During the talks with the football association, I immediately had a good feeling. The country is in full development, but on voetbalvlak they want to be under the influence of back Razvan Burleanu – barely 32 years – to do away with the past and especially a clean politics”, says Verkempinck, who, like Daum for two years was signed.

In qualification for the world cup, the agreement is automatically extended. But: a tough job in a group with Poland and Denmark, of which only the first is directly place. “At EC we have noticed that even teams with less talented players a good results. By a good organisation, mentality and team spirit have Wales and Iceland everyone surprised. That should be here with Christophe also possible, because of all coaches with whom I’ve worked with, he is the only one who is also the mental aspect in training is integrated.”
