Royal Antwerp fans 'riot' after Kenya International's exit
Royal Antwerp fans have expressed their disappointment following the departure of Kenya International Johanna Omolo.
Omolo signed a two year deal with second division side Cercle Brugge on Tuesday and this was after Antwerp coach revealed to him that he was not part of his top flight plans.
Many fans feel that the midfielder who impressed throughout the season and helped the side earn promotion would be of much importance in top flight campaign.
The fans now believe that his new club, Brugge will be strong and might earn promotion to Belgium’s top tier due to his impact in the midfield.
Here are some of their reactions
Charles Stolck: I am Antwerp supporter and Omolo was undoubtedly our best player last season. Perfect mindset, is ballast and has gear in the legs. It is hard for everyone to understand that he is leaving.
Bjorn Kimberly Claessens Roovers: Cercle will be free champion, this is a top transfer that you have realized. He is a fighter, solid and good on attacks you are going to enjoy it. I like that Antwerp supporters have huge pain that he has left but as I said cercle will be 100 % champion. Comoooon Johanna Omolo last but not least see you in 1A with cercle brugge ????? of a real Antwerp supporter
Dirk Apers: You let Omolo go, how stupid can you be? His young
Walter VanLommel: My fear has come to pass. Without Omolo, We're going to play without midfield. He is one of players can absolutely compete at level 1 A, ????
