Defeat to AEK Athens hurts Dessers’ future at Genk under Vrancken

KRC Genk manager Wouter Vrancken was disappointed with the performance of his side in their friendly game against AEK Athens.

Genk lost 2-0 to the former Greek Champions and Vrancken singled out his attackers for not living up to expectations.

The tactician started the game with Cyriel Dessers, Junya Ito and Luca Oyen, but they failed to impress.

In his post-match remark, Vrancken criticized the attitude of the Attackers and demanded more moving forward.

“There is enough willingness in training,” the KRC Genk Coach told Het Laatste Nieuws. “But I saw that too little against AEK Athens. That was especially the case in the front. They have to make sure they turn their knob.”

“We just didn’t play a good game,” Vrancken continued. “We didn’t give away many chances, but we did swallow goals on stationary phases. That just shouldn’t happen.”

“I also saw too little energy in possession. I was also surprised by some. You play back in a stadium and we are on a week of the start of the competition, then you expect a bit more.”



Dessers has played all Genk’s pre season game so far, and he’s yet to find the back of the net.
