Philippe Clement will continue his adventure in Bruges. The coach of the reigning champion now has an indefinite contract, which is rather rare in football.
” I am delighted to continue to coach the Club next year. In 18 years of Club I have been able to experience many great things, but I also see many great challenges for the future. Challenges that motivate me enormously. I am already looking forward to the start of the new football competition, with an audience hopefully. ”said Clement.
“We are happy that Philippe remains the head coach of the Club next season. Our interviews showed that we still share the same ambitions, and that we want to achieve them together. Philippe is a high level coach who knows the house and can work in the multidisciplinary environment in which Club Brugge finds itself today. By switching to an open-ended contract, we give both parties the possibility of integrating evaluation periods without being constrained to a predetermined number of seasons.. “, explained Vincent Mannaert, CEO of the club.
