Hein Van Heesbrouck sacked as coach of Gent – Football News

Hein Vanhaezebrouck is an outlier among coaches in the Jupiler Pro League. His story at KAA Gent now seems over.

Hein Vanhaezebrouck was one of the outside favorites to win the national title in the Jupiler Pro League with KAA Gent at the end of the Summer Mercato, but after several departures during the Winter Mercato, there are not many left.

On the contrary, the battle will be to finish in the top six and thus play in the Champions Playoffs.

The course of events in the Buffaloes team clearly did not please the coach. Every week he used his press conferences to broadcast his views on everything and anything to the world, and his club and board were no exception.

Hein Vanhaezebrouck wants to be fired from KAA Gent

“It's a gift for journalism to see him bust his ass every week. But that doesn't mean he's always right,” says analyst Johan Boskamp at Het Belang van Limburg.

The Dutchman is convinced that Vanhisbrouck has a hidden agenda. “I think he's consciously looking for something to do. Hopefully they'll fire him and pay him money before his contract is up. Just to get off his bullshit.”

Since the club was taken over, Vanhaezebrouck is no longer the ultimate powerhouse at KAA Gent. It seems that “Ivan (De Wit, editor) always had his hand on Hine's head, but under the new owner (Sam Barrow, editor) things look different.”
