Ghanaian international Kamal Sowah, has taken to social media to pay tribute to his former boss Carl Hoefkens who has left Club Brugge.
Carl Hoefkens was appointed head coach of Blauw-Zwart at the end of May. Hoefkens (43) was previously assistant coach at the U18 and U21 of Club and Talent Coach and has acted as assistant to the first team for the past 3 seasons.
Despite a good track in the Champions League, the performance and level of play in the competition remained below expectations. The World Cup break brought no improvement. On Wednesday, the club was eliminated in the Belgian Cup and on Monday it came no further than 1-1 against OH Leuven.
"Its is tough day for the wholw team to hear you no longer our coach. I want to thank you for the opportunities you provided for me this season, you believed in me in very important moments and it was a pleasure to work with you. I wish you all the best in your next steps and I hope one day we can cross paths again." Soawh posted on Instagram
Meawnwhile, CEO Vincent Mannaert said: “Carl is a Clubman pure sang. His contribution and commitment to Club NXT and as an assistant were greatly appreciated. His part in this season’s successful Champions League campaign cannot be underestimated either.
“Our choices last summer did not deliver the desired level of play and result in the Belgian league and the Belgian cup. We are now working on the best possible succession for Club.” He added.
