Yves Defraigne has been appointed as new coach of the Kangaroos Willebroek. That made the staartteam from the Euromillions Basketball League Tuesday known. Defraigne follows the Croat Damir Milacic, with whom the cooperation Monday by the disappointing results was terminated. Willebroek is the ninth and penultimate place in the standings.
The 52-year-old Defraigne is a coach with plenty of experience. After he as a player for the Mountains came out between 1994 and 1999, he was then coach until 2005. After experiences in the German Trier and at Optima Gent, he went in 2012 to return to work in the Mountains until February 2017.
Defraigne signed in Willebroek a contract until the end of next season. He will be so, as the team will also lead in Mechelen, the future home of the club.
