Beerschot starts preparation for the season in 1B today. For Andreas Wieland it will be the first training as coach of the Mannekes. He welcomes three newcomers to the practice field, Robbe Quirynen, Thibaud Verlinden and Thibo Baeten. The Belgian-Kosovar tester Andi Khosi is also expected at the Kiel, the 21-year-old central midfielder is at the end of his contract with Cercle Brugge.
The club hopes to announce a few more names in the coming days. The Congolese Belgian Mardochée Nzita is one of the targets. The 21-year-old left winger was trained at Anderlecht and moved to Italy in 2019, where he played for Perugia and Pescara. Last season, Nzita made 27 appearances in Serie C, with one goal and four assists.
Coulibaly is training with us
Also expected in training today: Ismaila Coulibaly. The Malian midfielder was hired from Sheffield United for the past two seasons, but will return to the English club this summer. Because Coulibaly’s work permit is not yet in order, he will maintain the condition at Beerschot for a while. (sks, kofr, dige)
