KVM strikes again: The midfielder signs the autograph

KVM strikes again: The midfielder signs the autograph

For KV Mechelen, the countdown continues until the end of the season. In the battle for the final win in the European qualifiers, Malinois had to acknowledge his superiority over AA Gent and therefore had nothing at stake in the remaining matches. And so people are already preparing for the near future behind the scenes.

The people of Mechelen have gone through a season of extremes. For example, KVM started their Jupiler Pro League campaign very poorly, even threatening to sink into relegation. Therefore, the club management was forced to intervene. For example, cooperation with head coach Steven Defour was discontinued.

Nice refreshment

To replace him, the board of directors decided to call in an old acquaintance. For example, Besnik Hassi is set to be the new T1 at AFAS Stadium. This turned out to be an excellent move. The former midfielder first provided the necessary stability within his team and then allowed his team to play better and better football.

Meanwhile, the results also increased. And in the second half of the season there was no measurement of KVM at all. This meant they only missed out on a place in the Champions Playoffs at the last minute. Excellent work from Hassi.

Invest in your youth

However, the coach leaves again after a few months. For example, no agreement was reached on a contract extension. Since this decision has already been made, KVM has enough time to find a suitable successor. The search is already going full speed.

But while waiting for the new coach, the sports administration is not standing idly by. There is no doubt that the next transfer window is already in preparation. The long term is also taken into account. Earlier this week, Lucas Pert was allowed to sign his first professional contract. Now it’s Elton Yeboah’s turn.

Progress to the first team

The 19-year-old midfielder came through KRC Genk’s youth academy in 2020 and has since become a regular at Jong KVM. Yeboah can therefore continue to develop in Mechelen. His goal is to continue growing into the first team. “My role model is Ngalile Mokau. He was my teammate with Al-Shabab at the beginning of the season, but now he is a regular in the first team,” the youngster responds on the club’s website.
