Many fans and spectators in Sporting Anderlecht wonder why Sambi Lokong does not get his chance at Anderlecht since his excellent debut against the Standard last season. "Just look at players in my position to understand, they are experienced players, so I was on the bench or in the stands," Brother Mpokua said after a good match at Waasland-Beveren.
The same story on Old Man's face. "We have a plan with him, but you have to know that there is competition in his position with Kums, Trebel and Makarenkom, and he has to know we have a goal."
"Yes, that's fine, he told me he had a plan," Lokong admitted. "He leads me, give me many tips." Karim (Belhocine ed.) Also helps me to work on my mistakes, sometimes my coach says: If you manage to delete it, if you have it, it will be much betterAnd that's what I'm trying to do. "
If he's played in Waasland, he's getting ready to go. "Today I can say I'm grown up, I've corrected my mistakes," he says with a smile.
That's the goal, Vanhaezebrouck's plan: "We are preparing Samija to make Anderlecht a starter, he has the features for that, he has become stronger in the duels. The players do not respond, he will get more chances."
Indeed, given the complex condition of Adrien Trebel and Sven Kuma's injury, Sambi could take his chance in weeks and even days. "Yes, that's a great opportunity, I'm ready, but the coach has a lot of choices," concludes 19-year-old.
