The RSCA Futures, our U23s, will start the new season with a renewed staff. Guillaume Gillet will no longer coach the RSCA Futures next season. Dutchman Marink Reedijk will become the new head coach.
Guillaume Gillet joined the club last summer, having ended his playing career, to take his first steps in coaching. He became an assistant-coach to head coach Felice Mazzù in the first team. After Mazzù's departure, Gillet took up the role of head coach of our RSCA Futures. He led the Futures to the Promotion Play-Offs in the Challenger Pro League, eventually finishing sixth in their first season in the Belgian second division. At the end of this season, the club and Guillaume decided to part ways by mutual agreement.
Jesper Fredberg :
"We are happy that Guillaume was able to take his first steps as a coach at the club of his heart. But we have to be honest: the context for him was not easy this season. Guillaume will continue his development as a coach elsewhere. We would like to thank him sincerely for last season."
Meanwhile, Marink Reedijk (31) has been appointed as the new head coach of the RSCA Futures. Marink joins us from Vitesse Arnhem, where he spent the past two seasons as assistant coach to Thomas Letsch and Phillip Cocu.
Meanwhile, Guillaume's successor has also been officially appointed. Marink Reedijk (31) will become the new head coach of the RSCA Futures. Marink comes over from Vitesse Arnhem, where he spent the past two seasons as assistant coach to Thomas Letsch and Phillip Cocu.
Marink has come a long way in international football despite his young age. He started as a youth coach at the KNVB, before going on to coach Ajax and West Bromwich Albion's youth teams from 2014. In 2018, he became assistant coach of the first team at KSV Roeselare. Marink then devoted himself to a PhD in 'coaching science', before eventually joining Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2021. Under head coaches Thomas Letsch and Phillip Cocu, he rotated in the Dutch Eredivisie for two seasons.
As from July 1, Marink will be assisted by David Hubert, who joined the RSCA Futures as a player last season. David is hanging up his football boots after a beautiful career - having played for KAA Gent, KRC Genk, Mouscron, OH Leuven, Zulte Waregem and finally the RSCA Futures, among others. He will continue his development at RSCA as assistant coach with the U23s.
"The choice for RSC Anderlecht is easy to explain. It is a wonderful challenge to prepare the club's young talents in a competitive environment like the Challenger Pro League, to hopefully eventually see them make the step to the first team. Moreover, the Belgian league is very interesting, so this is also the right step for me as a coach in my own development."
