The Anderlecht players wear Sunday in the league match against Royal Excel Mouscron shirts on which Rob Rensenbrink is standing. The Dutchman died on Friday at the age of 72.
Rensenbrink is known as one of the best Dutch footballers of all time, but spent most of his player career in Belgium. The born Amsterdammer was under contract with Club Brugge between 1969 and 1971 and wore the shirt of Anderlecht from 1971 to 1980.
At Anderlecht, Rensenbrink won twice the European Cup II, two national titles and four times the national cup tournament. In 2008 'the snake man' was named the best player ever of the Belgian top club, which now naturally extensively reflects on the death of Rensenbrink.
Since Tuesday there is a condolence register in the official fanshop of Anderlecht, where a special memorial room has been set up for the Dutchman. Supporters can leave a final message there in the coming days.
In addition, the Anderlecht players will pay tribute to the club icon on Sunday with the special Rensenbrink shirts. The match against Excel Mouscron starts at 6 p.m.
