Kenneth Vermeer seems to have forced a definitive base place at Club Brugge. The goalkeeper blundered at his debut against Standard Liège, but took a penalty kick in the match against Waasland-Beveren. The sixty-year-old Hans Galjé assumes that Vermeer decided in his favour the battle with Vladimir Gabulov.
Galjé kept a close eye on Ajax and Club and later he was head of youth education at Blauw-Zwart and goalkeeper trainer at Standard, among others,”In principle, as a former player of Ajax and Feyenoord, he has all the advantages of being under the bar. Besides his athletic ability, you also have excellent technology and excellent reflexes,”says Galjé.
Kenneth Vermeer does what he is good at in what he does.
Kenneth certainly needs qualities, but he needs time and especially competition rhythm. I assume that Ivan Leko (trainer, ed.) will give him that because he looks fit. Changing again now would not be good either. Even experienced goalkeepers over the age of thirty need confidence and clarity “, Galjé concludes in the interview with Sport/Voetbalmagazine.
The 32-year-old Vermeer will take up RC Genk, the number five of the ranking in the Pro League this coming Saturday. Afterwards, the meetings with Standard, KV Kortrijk and VV Sint-Truiden will be on the agenda, before the balance is drawn up and the Pro League will continue in a championship and demotion pole.
