Glen De Boeck Returns to Coaching with KV Kortrijk: A Troubled History and Lofty Promises

“We’re going to try to straighten it out. I have experience with such things.”

After four years of absence, Glen De Boeck confidently returned to the coaching profession at the end of September. At KV Kortrijk, penultimate in the standings at the time, he succeeded Edward Still.

In 2017, De Boeck had already brought KV Kortrijk to the brink of Play-off I with an impressive recovery, but there was no repeat of that success. He also couldn’t get the train on the rails.

In 9 matches, De Boeck could only achieve a stunt victory against Club Brugge. He also achieved modest success in the Belgian Cup after penalties against Dender.

For the board, the two victories did not outweigh the defeats against Westerlo, Genk, Union and KV Mechelen and the points division against Eupen and RWDM. The elimination in the Belgian Cup against RWDM was the final straw.

KV Kortrijk now has to look for a new head coach for the 6th time in just over 2 years. After the departure of Luka Elsner, Karim Belhocine, Adnan Custovic, Bernd Storck, Edward Still and Glen De Boeck were reviewed.

Striking: the last four coaches sang an average of 12 games in West Flanders.

Assistant Joseph Akpala will take over De Boeck’s duties for the time being and will immediately face a crucial relegation match against Westerlo on Friday. “The club is working on a successor as quickly as possible,” the club said.
