Steven Defour is no longer a trainer at KV Mechelen. It remains to be seen who will be his successor Achter de Kazerne.
Steven Defour decided in mutual consultation with KV Mechelen to step aside after the team’s difficult start to the competition. He had just been a trainer Achter de Kazerne for a year.
The club is busy looking for a successor. Previously, the names of Marc Brys, Bernd Hollerbach and Ivan Leko were mentioned as possible successors to Steven Defour.
According to the football podcast Barotelli, you can add a striking name to that list: Timmy Simons. The problem, however, is that he is still under contract with Dender in the Challenger Pro League until 2025.
An element that could point in the direction of Simons leaving Dender is that video analyst Pieter De Bot suddenly leaves the club after five years. Is that the harbinger of a move by Simons towards KV Mechelen?
In any case, Simons fits within the profile that KV Mechelen has as trainer of the club. Let’s see if an agreement can be found with Dender regarding an early departure.
