What to expect this Saturday evening in Sclessin, for the premiere of the former Kortrijk coach at the head of Standard? Here are the first answers …
What organization? Daily work more focused on the individual
Since his arrival in Liège, Luka Elsner has not fundamentally changed the habits of the group he now leads. So far, the Franco-Slovenian technician has just made some alterations. If he kept the training rhythm decreed by Mbaye Leye, namely one day per week with two work sessions and only one on the other days, he brought forward by half an hour the start of the training he provides in morning, which therefore start at 10:30 am. This means that the players also dine a little earlier, around 12.30-12.45pm.
In the same vein, and without changing the decor of importance, Luka Elsner has decided to systematically schedule the training given the day before the match in the course of the afternoon, to allow his players to be in the conditions closest to those of the meeting. And also not to leave, between training and the match, much more than twenty-four hours. Friday’s session thus took place at 3.30 p.m.
►► Tactical system, playstyle, base eleven: this is what Luka Elsner’s Standard should look like.
