INFO:
The General. Solid Dane of great class, an icon of RWDM. Very tough player with enormous leadership. Fiery and flamboyant personality with signature blonde locks. Scandinavian professional mentality, hardworking, demanding of other team members. Technically gifted, very calm at the back, often played long balls with both legs.

The captain of the champion team. Inventor of the elbow bump. The patron of Racing White in the early 1970s. But when Johan Boskamp arrived in 1974, there were suddenly two roosters in the coop. The player group split into two clans: the Dutch and the Belgians. However, Boskamp was with the Belgians as Bjerre was already with the Dutch. The Dutchman also thought he had the best contract, but Bjerre deserved more. His contract with Racing White was simply taken over, including the high title premiums. Boskamp was disappointed and claimed the captaincy from Bjerre. Ultimately, a Solomonic verdict was taken by giving the tape to Maurice Martens. On the field you saw nothing of the mesentente between Boskamp and Bjerre, they were real professionals. Later, for example, there was a scuffle in Bilbao. It degenerated and Bjerre's career in Molenbeek was over. Two patrons, that couldn't last.

Bjerre was also the man who never missed a match. Played every possible match for five years. Was physically a bear. Eddy Koens: "When we went to training, he had already completed his ten kilometers in the Terkamerenbos." Never had a yellow suspension and was never injured. An absolute example of professionalism. He was a central midfielder first and later evolved into a libero. A rock solid one. Desanghere's partner at the back. Desanghere had more speed and compensated for Martens' offensive impulses, Bjerre was calmer and could defend better. It was actually pure coincidence that Bjerre became a libero. At Racing White, Stassart was a libero and Bjerre was a midfielder. When Stassart suffered an injury, Felix Week posted Bjerre in that position, who did so well that he stayed there.

Bjerre was one of the best-paid players in Belgian league and was also the first foreigner to become captain of a Belgian team. 22 caps for Denmark with no fewer than 12 goals, of which he scored on all seven penalties he took, which was a national team record until Daniel Agger scored eight out of eight in 2014. And also captain, thirteen times in fact, in his last thirteen matches. Scored two goals in the 1968 European Championship qualifying match against the Netherlands, with Johan Cruyff, Piet Keizer and Wim Jansen. Denmark, also featuring Ulrik Le Fèvre, won 3-2. In 1973, Bjerre took Belgian nationality so that RWDM could employ a foreigner, in this case fellow countryman Benny Nielsen. This immediately meant the end of Bjerre's international career, who gave up because he was tired of the lack of professionalism. After his career he took Danish nationality again. Was not allowed to play for the national team for three years between 1968 and 1971. The reason was that he went to Houston in America in 1968 and the rules for amateurism were broken. Bjerre moved to PSV Eindhoven and in May 1971, when he was already in Racing White, the aforementioned rules were abolished and he was called up again.
