In a few months from the good goalkeeper sitting on the bench to the champion in the cup final. “That was no surprise to AA Gent. He seems to have taken a lot of them during training. As a goalkeeper, you don’t accidentally take two out of your five penalties.”
You walk next to your shoes for less. “It’s not in his nature,” says analyst Wim de Koninck. “Yesterday he said he was lucky to have jumped to the right side of both penalties. That humility is typical of him. He should put himself in the spotlight a little bit more.”
“Now he’s basically doing it with his performances and clean sheets. I think he’s really starting now, he can’t be stopped anymore. Rove is sure of his place at AA Gent.”
“And don’t forget that he already has a lot of experience. He became a holder of Anderlecht at a young age. They saw in him a very good goalkeeper. He became a victim of a lesser period when Anderlecht was on time.”
“He’s been able to come back from those setbacks a few times. The fact that he’s now at this level shows once again that he has a great deal of mental resilience.”
So nothing but praise. Does this mean that Davy Rove is ready to take a step forward? “I don’t think the transition is necessary, it’s his place in AA Gent,” concludes de Konink.
