Youri Tielemans…

… are vroegrijpheid:

‘Some of the players of Monaco were surprised that I was only twenty am, they are surprised by the way I talk and me behave. When I say that I am married and have a child have, are they also surprised. For me there is nothing out of the ordinary. I have the things are always well planned. As soon as I ready feel for certain important stages in life, I’m sure. If you are ready, must you hurl. I’m sure it’s good for my development, it brings me stability.’

… the difference between Monaco and PSG:

“There was moving quite a bit in the core during the summer, we were also with injured players, so the coach had to search for the best system, the best composition. But once the group was complete, we were there at all and our good series proves that anything is now on feet. Of course, PSG is a big advantage. But we look at all of them, we look at ourselves and keep in our wake, Marseille and Lyon in the holes. In one match against PSG, it may always be possible. But in the long term, if they are left and right don’t spill with points, it is really hard. We also know that she is very on revenge from his since last season, Monaco champion was. They found that there is not fun, it made them react. PSG has built a group to be very far along to get in the Champions League, so it is what normal that they are above it protrude in the Ligue 1. For us it is the real goal the second place, since we thereby would directly places for the Champions League.’

… Anderlecht and René Weiler:

“Yes, I have him contacted. He told me that after the title of a certain slackening was noticed in the group. He had indeed predicted. He wanted the players continuously tried to improve, all the more so because the opponents all would give to be the champion to beat. At the beginning of the season was Anderlecht’s not there, there was that lethargy. René Weiler was gradually the feeling that the good spirit little by little came back, that the players are aware that they have more to do. But for Weiler, it was too late. Because when you are again harder to go to work, it will still take a few weeks for that to be reflected in the results. Weiler had that time. He is particularly disappointed, because he loved the club, the group. It clicked with the players, there was a real trust. It happened, for example, that he is thy vine deleted when we told him we prefer to spend time with the family. He listened to them. For him there was from the time we are out there on the field stónden in the weekend no absolute obligation to seclusion. He had a mind to continue to do so in the biggest club of Belgium. But, as he told me, the board was not satisfied with the results and decided to cancel the contract to terminate.’
