Tomorrow Faïz Selemani (29) will look his best friend Teddy Teuma (29) and ex-club Union in the eye. A few seasons ago, the Comorian ball virtuoso forced a transfer from the capital to West Flanders. “Do I regret my choice for KV Kortrijk? Certainly not.”

The last day of the regular competition in the Jupiler Pro League promises to be a special match for everyone who has a warm heart for KV Kortrijk. Club legend Kristof D’Haene (32) hangs his football boots on the hook after eight seasons with the Guys. “It will be emotional for Kristof,” says Faïz Selemani. “He has always given everything for this club and will have a nice farewell. Not only do I have a good relationship with him on the field, we also get along well off the field. I’m sorry for him, but if you’re in too much pain, you have to stop.”

Not only D’Haene will wave goodbye to the fans of the Veekaa. Coach Bernd Storck (60) and perhaps also Faïz Selemani will also be seen for the very last time in the Guldenspoorstadion. “It is now known about them, but I cannot say for sure that I will no longer be here next season,” said the Comorian. “Last year I also thought I had left for Genk or Al-Ahly. My broker will just do his job as I told you before. I now focus on that last game against Union, an important one for myself. I will meet my buddy Teuma for the first time in midfield, nice duels will be fought. We’ve already talked about it. He is also looking forward to it.”

No regrets

In the summer of 2019, Selemani reinforced Kortrijk’s troops. He came over from Union through the Act of ’78. “Do I regret that transfer? Certainly not. I have always been happy at KV Kortrijk. You just make a choice. I’m really proud of Union for doing so well. I’m proud of their achievements in the league and in Europe, but I don’t mind not being there. I had a good time with Percy Tau and Youssoufou Niakaté. What an attack we had then in second class. I still have regular contact with Youssoufou. We had a great time then and the fans of Union realize that. It is a pity that I am no longer liked by them, but that is football. On Sunday we want to close the season well and just give Kristof a nice goodbye.”
