ANDERLECHT legend Nicolas Frutos will be in charge of the team for the Champions League clash with Celtic in Brussels a week tonight.
However, the 36-year-old Argentinian coach has been told he will not get the post on a permanent basis.
The Belgian champions sacked their Swiss boss Rene Weiler after a dismal start to the season – their worst for 19 years.
Frank de Boer, sacked by Crystal Palace last week after four successive Premier League defeats, topped a fans’ poll to take over, but Anderlecht are keen on Gent boss Hein Vanhaezebrouck.
Frutos, a former top scorer who won three national titles with the team, will be in charge for the weekend clash with Waasland-Beveren and the visit of Brendan Rodgers’ men.
Sporting director Herman van Holsbeeck said: “Nicolas now has a few weeks to prove himself, but it’s not the intention to make him coach.”
