Charles De Ketelaere, Tedesco’s big oversight: “Is he really that bad in training?”

The Red Devils drew a disappointing 0-0 draw against Ukraine. Coach Domenico Tedesco has been criticized for his squad management.

René Vandereycken, a former Red Devils coach, does not understand why Charles De Ketelaere has not been used since the start of the Euros. “I think Trossard is a brilliant player, and defensively he does his job well,” he starts in the columns of Het Nieuwsblad.

“But I don’t see him as a replacement for the suspended Lukebakio, not as a right-winger. For me, Trossard is the replacement for Doku, on the left. On the right, you have Lukebakio and Bakayoko, but also De Ketelaere.”

Trossard has disappointed three times and is not, according to Vandereycken, a player cut out for this position. “Especially in the role that Trossard is currently playing: not quite on the right, often cutting inside. This is exactly the role in which De Ketelaere had a fantastic season at Atalanta.”

“From there he could have combined with De Bruyne, joined Lukaku in the box, as he does with Scamacca. Especially because – unlike Trossard – he is good in the air.”

So there are inevitable questions about Tedesco’s knowledge of the real abilities of his squad. “Has the coach ignored the Italian league? Or is De Ketelaere perhaps that bad in training? I don’t understand at all why he hasn’t even come on as a substitute.”
