Midfield Star Radha Nainggolan shared photos of destruction on Twitter.

He wrote: “Autumn winds and pieces blowing around in Bosuille. Name another iconic pairing – I’ll wait.”

“Due to the strong wind, part of the roof at Stand One came loose and fell on the pitch.

“At the moment everything is under control, and as a club we have no more problems.”

Antwerp shared a 15-year partnership with Manchester United, which ended in 2013.

Their squad includes ex-United and Leicester defender Richie De Laet as well as former Aston Villa duo Eli Samatta and Bjorn Engels.

Former Middlesbrough midfielder Faris Aarons is the club’s captain, nicknamed The Great Old.

Antwerp coach Brian Priske made headlines in August when he held a post-match news conference naked but for a towel.
