Ghent has made the decision: ‘Not Besnik Hasi, but the coach of this Belgian club must become Vanhaezebrouck’s successor’ – Football News


KAA Gent has put Wouter Vrancken at the top of its wish list as coach for next season. The coach himself is also charmed by the interest. Although there is still an obstacle to be overcome.

The newspapaer knows that Wouter Vrancken is the top candidate to become the new coach of KAA Gent. Sam Baro – the owner of The Buffalos is a fan of the coach’s working method – has made the decision.

Vrancken is currently working as coach of KRC Genk. There has been noise on the line for several months now. The good start of the Limburgers in the Champions Play-Off seemed to clear the air, but Genk is now back to square one.

It is the intention of both Genk and Vrancken to quickly clarify matters. But that is precisely the problem for Ghent. The coach has a contract in Limburg until mid-2026. Without a dismissal or termination of that contract, it will be an expensive matter The Buffalos.

Besnik Hasi is also still on Ghent’s list. The current coach of KV Mechelen seemed to be the top candidate, but has now become a plan B. “I would like to continue working in Belgium in the coming years,” he was very clear.

Who will be the new coach of KAA Gent?

The Buffalos want to quickly appoint a new coach to shape the preparation for the new season. We are still waiting for official notification regarding Hein Vanhaezebrouck’s farewell. Although no one doubts anymore that the latter will leave after this season.
