ALEXANDER BLESSIN HAS GOOD NEWS...
Coach Alexander Blessin has signed a new contract until 2024. Blessin's contract expired after this season, but now he commits to KVO for another two years.
Gauthier Ganaye: "There were a lot of rumours about Alex's future after the end of last season. We had confidence in him when we appointed him last summer and he delivered the style of play we wanted and the results even exceeded expectations. Yes, it's no secret that several clubs in the summer inquired about his services. But before the preparation for the new season started, we sat down with Alex and reached an initial agreement to extend his contract at the club until 2024. We started this journey together a year ago and I am delighted to continue working with him to improve KV Oostende.
In football, especially when a team is successful, players come and go. The most important thing for us as a club is to build stability and stick to our vision. Now it's time for new heroes to step up!"
Alexander BlessinThere was a lot of speculation about my future these past months, but I never made a secret of the fact that I was open to an extended stay at KVO. Here, I can play the football I want to play myself and I know that I am supported by Gauthier and the board. When we started last season with 2 out of 12, there was never any panic, while that would have been the case at many other clubs. Knowing that the board fully supports your way of working and goes along with that, brings a certain peace to a trainer. I am a loyal person and this new contract offers stability, both for me and for the club. Now it's up to me and my staff to continue this momentum and to make the many young players better. Now the new Theate's and Hendry's have to stand up. In any case, we are on the right track and keep working hard."
