Standard Liege had a generally good last season in which they always looked comfortable in the top six but were far too predictable and drab at times to really last the pace at the top of the table. It proved the last season of the great Michel Preud’homme experiment as the great club legend agreed to part ways after two seasons. A very good coach in Philippe Montanier takes over from this season onwards, fresh from winning promotion with Lens in the French Ligue 2. He is set to work with mostly the same squad that Preud’homme had and it remains to be seen how much he will be able to improve some promising players who delivered only in flashes last year. Samuel Bastien was the key man last season and it seems like he is staying put this season, with Megrim Vojvoda the one player tipped to leave in the coming weeks. Overall, Standard have good quality and depth but the lack of a reliable and injury-free striker is the main issue. Obbi Oulare is excellent at this level but has not had much luck with injuries lately and needs a consistent run of games. Standard look well-placed to be a player in the top end of the table and have a balanced and experienced coach but need a bit more flair and difference-makers in the final third to really push on.

Target


Challenge for the top three.

Season Review
2020/2021

№8: Standard Liege

Standard Liege started the season with high hopes and ambitions under new boss Philip Montanier and the team got off to a pretty decent start, with wins at Beerschot and Charleroi on the road in the first half a dozen games suggesting that there is real potential in this squad. However, the form of the team started to desert them after the promising start as the autumn months came in and the fixtures started to pile up. Injuries started to beset the squad too and the lack of continuity in the starting 11 became a real worry as Standard went on a run of eight league games without a win. The lack of a potent and reliable striker was the main problem while the loss of quality defender Zinho Vanheusden to a serious knee injury despite the back line of their best player. Suddenly, Montanier was struggling to get the team on board and a miserable couple of home losses to Mouscron and Sint Truiden before New Year meant that he was axed. Former player and assistant coach Mbaye Leye took over for the rest of the season and he quickly managed to refresh things and improve morale in the camp, leading the Liege side to four wins in a row. He also managed to lead them to the Cup final after difficult wins on the road against Kortrijk and Eupen on the road, and a hard-earned success at home against Club Brugge, but the hopes of silverware and a place in Europe were dashed by a loss to Genk in the final. The league form remained rather unstable but a strong run in the final few weeks ensured a place in the top eight and six more play-off games. Yet, these proved a total disaster as Standard lost five out of them and by the end the squad resembled a disheveled rabble that played without purpose. It was thus a hugely demoralising campaign and Leye faces a massive rebuilding job in the summer.
