No matter if they are plying their trade for a while in Belgium, Switzerland or against our Red Bulls - we always need to check in on our loan players once in a while. With no league duty for some time, we have the perfect opportunity to get a quick update on our boys.
Dorgeles Nene (KVC Westerlo)
The last time we had a look he had taken a regular super sub role, but now he has nailed down a position in the starting line-up of De Kempeneers. With four goal contributions in the last four encounters in the Belgian top flight, Dorgeles has fully justified the faith placed in him, and has helped the newly promoted side into a comfortable mid-table position. Only a two-match suspension has been able to stop the Malian international.
Mamadou Sangare (SV Zulte Waregem)
His countryman had to sit it out on the sidelines for a good few weeks earlier this season. He has been given a chance to shine since the start of November, however, scoring against Mechelen, starting against Eupen and making the next round of the Belgian Cup – the 1.78-metre man has led the club's renaissance as they continue to climb the table from the bottom.
Daouda Guindo (FC St. Gallen 1879)
Our third man from Mali on loan had a really demanding autumn, with the full-back not missing a single minute in the Swiss Super League since the end of July. His team could be doing better, with a barren run of seven matches without a win, before the comeback began. A sensational 7-2 win over Mario Balotelli's FC Sion saw Daouda Guindo, Albert Vallci and team-mates go into the winter break in style.
Amankwah Forson (SCR Altach)
Miroslav Klose's side have experienced plenty of ups and downs in recent weeks. They won against ADMIRAL Bundesliga rivals Ried, Hartberg and Wolfsberg, but were beaten by Austria Vienna, our Red Bulls and local rivals Austria Lustenau. Our loanee has been a regular in that run, starting four of the past six clashes and providing two assists.
Kilian Ludewig (Aalborg BK)
In the middle of September, Erik Hamren, popular former Sweden coach, took the helm at de bolchestribede (the striped candy canes). Kilian suddenly lost his regular spot in the side. After four matches, the new boss reconsidered and started the German again at right back. It has not been such a happy time of late with four defeats in a row for the side placed 11th and second last of the Danish Superliga.
Daniel Owusu (First Vienna FC 1894)
Just when #LigaZwa was finishing for the autumn came the shocking news. The Ghanaian suffered a broken ankle in a match against Rapid Vienna II and is out for the rest of the season. Thankfully the attacker has already been operated on and is on the road to recovery. Get well soon, Daniel!
