“Boosting for Vinc: Vinc outperforms JPL”

“Boosting for Vinc: Vinc outperforms JPL”

Just a few days after losing their last European ticket, KRC Genk has completely changed direction. Thorsten Fink was introduced as the new head coach on Wednesday. And it looks like the first summer addition is on its way as well.

When assessing the season, Genk’s board has no choice but to judge that the club has failed in recent months. The European campaign, for example, was woefully substandard. In the cup, Genk lost to second division team KV Oostende. In the competition, they eventually lost a European ticket.

Indefinite term contract

Meanwhile, head coach Wouter Franken was also given a premature farewell. In short: a failed season. But in the meantime, the focus is back on the near future. On Wednesday, Fink was officially announced as Franken’s successor. The German signed an indefinite contract.

Fink will have to continue his good work in STVV at Cegeka Arena. He has his team playing attractive football in Sint-Truiden, while Genk has more intrinsic qualities. Additionally, Fink will also have a whole new perspective for young players available for further release.

An absolute bargain at STVV

In addition, there are reinforcements on the way as well. The first summer signing appears to be an old acquaintance of the new coach. So reports The importance of Limburg That Racing has all but ended the arrival of Jarne Steuckers. The transfer of the winger could be completed as early as Thursday.

Steuckers is a wing striker who also played for Genk in their youth academy. However, he completed that training at Sint-Truiden, where he enjoyed great success last season under Fink’s wing. However, his contract includes a release clause of around €800,000, meaning Racing could make an absolute deal.
