KRC Genk steals pawn from OH Leuven – Football News

KRC Genk steals Eddy Vanhemel from OH Leuven. In Limburg he will work as head of football development and coach.

KRC Genk announced the arrival of Eddy Vanhemel on its website. He is no stranger to the club, as Vanhemel was previously active there as superstructure coordinator and coach of the Genk U17 team.

Eddie Vanhemel returns to his roots. Starting next season, the former senior coordinator and coach of the Genk U17 team will take up the position of Head of Football Development and Coach at the Jos Vaessen Talent Academy. The club said in its statement: “In this position, he will form an important bridge between the Genk Academy and the first team.”

“In recent years, Vanhemel has been appointed by, among others, SK Lommel and OH Leuven, where he was interim first-team coach following the sacking of Mark Preis. In his new position he will form alongside Genk Academy head coach Koen Dearden.

“While Dearden will focus entirely on the succession and development of current and future young players, Vanhemel, as Head of Football and Coach Development, must monitor the principles of football at our club.” From the academy to the first team.

Coaching director Roland Breugelmans has already commented on Vanhemel's appointment. “In concrete terms, we expect Eddie to continue to develop our football DNA through the attractive and attacking football that we stand for as KRC Genk,” he begins.

“In addition, he will better guide our numerous coaches to put these principles into practice. As a teacher of the UEFA-A course in Voetbal Vlaanderen, he is an authority in the world of Belgian football. In short, he is the ideal man to continue shaping the future of KRC Genk.”
