One of the main goalscorers at Leeds United last season, Kemar Roofe was moved on by Marcelo Bielsa and the Championship side in the summer when Anderlecht came knocking.
Joining Vincent Kompany’s new project in Belgium with an injury, the striker was only meant to miss a three or so weeks, yet it took around nine to get back to full fitness.
With two games now under his belt, the former Leeds man has yet to find the back of the net, but, in quotes relayed by L’Avenir, he believes it isn’t all his fault, as the team have been underperforming.
He said: “I know people have been waiting for me for a while, but I’m not Superman. Scoring goals and winning, that’s a collective effort. Results will come. We just need a slice of luck to get going.
“On a personal level, I haven’t had a normal preseason with my ankle injury and I’m lacking rhythm, but with more games, I’ll find my best level”.
As L’Avenir point out, that higher echelon of form will be trying to replicate the output he managed under Marcelo Bielsa during the 2018-19 season.
The now 26-year-old scored 15 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions, as well as providing his teammates with two assists.
He moved to Anderlecht in €6m transfer on August 6th of this year and signed a three-year contract there.
