Anderlecht CEO Peter Verbeke has said that Inter loanee Sebastiano Esposito works hard but needs to make a bigger impression when he is on the pitch, according to a report in the Belgian print media.
Speaking during an interview with Het Laatse Nieuws, Peter Verbeke discussed some of the strikers that are at the Belgian Jupiler League side right now.
One of them is Sebastiano Esposito who is on loan from the Nerazzurri. The club want him to get regular game time in a competitive league but he is yet to make much of an impression.
The CEO explained that they have taken strikers on loan regularly who have played well and he always feared that they would get it wrong at some point.
“Strikers with experience cost money. We have been trying for three years to put the right strikers in our path.
“Lukas Nmecha, Joshua Zirkzee, Christian Kouamé and Fabio Silva were shots that stood out immediately.
“But I always feared the day when we would recruit a striker who failed to emerge immediately.”
He then explained that Sebastiano Esposito is in the latter category as things stand but it is not through a lack of effort.
He needs to maximise the small amount of time that he gets on the pitch.
“This is currently the case with Esposito. Every player has his instructions.
“Seba works very hard, but he must realise that he has to be able to make the most of the ten minutes he gets to play.
“He must make sure he is ready in these moments. Our task is to keep him focused.”
