The arrival of Felice Mazzu (53) to KRC Genk is not surprising. Both parties were already a few days as well as around, financially got they also. But to all the points and commas all in the right place to get was the last few days have taken the time and they wanted to only communicate if everything is in order. Monday afternoon came the confirmation from the province of Limburg.

The People need to be without their kampioenencoach Philippe Clement the Champions League. Clement chose a week and a half ago for a new adventure at Club Brugge over an extra year at KRC Genk. Mouscron-coach Bernd Storck was initially in poleposition, but eventually was chosen for Charleroi-coach Felice Mazzu.

He earned three times Play-off1 and one-time European football. Last week he grabbed the Zebra’s just next to the last European ticket by losses of Antwerp in the final of the play-offs.
Genk had a lump sum of 500,000 euros up to Mazzu los to weeks at Charleroi, which is a clause in his contract stipulated.
