KV Kortrijk won its fifth pre-season friendly match against PhD student RWDM 2-1. Edward Still, the new Kortrijk T1, coached fully along the sidelines. Mbayo scored the home team’s two goals. “I wanted to see what shape my players are in.”

On Monday he led his first training, on Wednesday he was immediately in the dug-out. Edward Still does not have a quiet start at KV Kortrijk. In the exhibition match against RWDM, he started with a striking name in the basic team. “Why Lars Montegnies kicked off? Because he deserved it,” said Still. “Lars is doing very well in training. I also saw him playing against SK Beveren on Saturday, he was the best player on the field of those young guys. He’s doing great. With me you don’t deserve to play until you prove yourself and he did. I will never choose someone based on their track record, age or salary. The best players will play. If you’re 17 or 35 now, it doesn’t matter. He played a very good game.”

“The victory was not the most important thing. I especially wanted to see what shape my players are in. I am satisfied with the result, but I am disappointed with David Henen’s injury. He was doing well and now had to go to the side. His hamstrings are bothering him and he will be out for ten days. Luckily it’s not too bad.”

Transfers

KV Kortrijk still has to look for some reinforcements. Now that the takeover troubles have finally subsided, they can fully focus on transfers at KVK. Aleksandar Radovanovic (29) trained for the first time yesterday after his loan to the American Austin FC. “He is back in the country, but he does not have a work permit for the time being,” says Edward Still. “That will be okay. I count on him 100 percent. He is super important to me and will be a key player, I told him that. For the rest we have a list of 20 to 25 players and yes, Martin Wasinki is on that too. I know him very well from my time at Charleroi. I would be lying if I said that I do not want to bring him to KV Kortrijk. He also had a good period here. If it’s possible for us and for him, I think both parties are happy.”
