KRC Genk will travel to Zagreb in Croatia on Wednesday morning, where it will play the important Europa League match against GNK Dinamo on Thursday. Head of Football Dimitri de Condé and chairman Peter Croonen remain behind in Belgium and are said to be in quarantine. The injured Daniel Munoz is also missing.
On Wednesday morning at 10.15 am, the selection of KRC Genk will fly from Maastricht Airport to Croatia. Racing would do itself a great favor by winning in Zagreb, but cannot count on Daniel Munoz. The Colombian right back already missed the match against Beerschot (2-0 defeat) last Sunday and is still injured. His compatriot Carlos Cuesta is also in the basket and does not belong to the 23-strong core of John van den Brom. Simen Juklerød will travel with you. The Norwegian played his last official match in July (Supercup against Club Brugge). Also present are the youngsters Tobe Leysen, Jay-Dee Geusens, Luca Oyen and Andras Németh. The four played in the Youth League against MTK Budapest on Tuesday.
Furthermore, the Genk delegation in Croatia has to do without chairman Peter Croonen and Head of Football Dimitri de Condé. They would be in quarantine. Croonen had previously also been absent for the away game against West Ham. The chairman then did not feel well on the morning of the departure.
PRC test required
The time of waiting anxiously for the new corona tests has also come again in football. At KRC they prefer to err on the side of caution. For example, everyone who boarded the plane with the players on Wednesday – staff, employees, sponsors, VIPs and journalists – underwent a PCR test. “That is not required by UEFA, but the media coverage clearly shows that the numbers are not going in the right direction,” said Operations Manager Robin Godderie.
