VIDEO: Realtor Refaelov: "Did they want Lior to lie at Antwerp?"

Now that the first storm around Lior Refaelov’s transfer has subsided, his broker Dudu Dahan is talking. The long-time confidant of the Golden Shoe does his side of the story. “For three months I called Antwerp and nobody answered the phone.”

Dissatisfaction at Antwerp after the announcement of the transfer of Lior Refaelov to Anderlecht. In a communiqué, the base number 1 denounced the timing and procedure surrounding the transition. Dudu Dahan, the Israeli broker, frowned. “Did they think we would wait until August?”

“Look, the intention was always to continue with Antwerp,” says Dahan. “Only they surprised us negatively. I thought they would call us after the Golden Shoe to ask us what we wanted – as is the case with all winners.”

“But that didn’t happen the day after. Not even the month after or 3 months after. I called Antwerp and nobody answered the phone. And when I came to the stadium, nobody opened the door. I thought that was strange.”

“I acted in the interests of my client. Lior has three children, at one point his wife asked me: where should they go to school next year? I did what I had to do.”

Convinced by a phone call from Kompany

Refaelov and his entourage felt appreciation at Anderlecht. “A phone call from Kompany to Lior made all the difference,” says Dahan. “That gave him a good feeling. And everything was handled quickly with the management.”

When Antwerp got wind of the agreement, it eventually came up with a proposal. “The offer was even better than Anderlecht’s. Only it came too late – we had given our word to Anderlecht. And in life you have to make choices like a man. You have to be able to see yourself in the mirror every morning and know that you did the right thing. “

Positive conversation with Vercauteren

At Antwerp they criticize that Anderlecht announced the transfer just before the start of the play-offs. Dahan cannot understand that. “Do they want Rafa to lie? We are not that kind of people. At all meetings with clubs I had been asked: is it still possible to get Refaelov?”

“What should I have said? And Rafa should have looked his friends in the eye in the locker room, knowing that he already signed for another club. We can’t be people like that.”

Maybe the 2 clubs should sit together to find a solution for the play-offs

The question that remains now is: is Antwerp still counting on Refaelov in the play-offs? For Dahan, the answer is clear: “Rafa is like a little kid, he wants to play football and win every match.Tuesday, ed.) a positive conversation with trainer Vercauteren. Maybe the two clubs should sit together to find a solution. “
