Dries Mertens was allowed to have a chat with King Filip today. How did it go? “He knew that I had broken Maradona’s record. I liked that,” says Mertens.
Ruben Van Gucht had brought the sound fragment of his World Cup goal against Algeria for the Napoli attacker. “That remains one of my best moments with the Red Devils. You can keep looking at that. It is always more beautiful with the images”, he smiles.
Mertens was also confronted with a statement from Sporza journalist Peter Vandenbempt, who believes that Jeremy Doku may be above Mertens based on the last few months.
“I have a high opinion of Vandenbempt. He always has good insights. He may think so. Doku also has a very bright future. We must try to win. If the best way to do that is with Doku, then I will be the first to to say: go for it. Although of course I would like to play.”
