Everybody expected it and now it has happened Harelbeke have fired their coach herman Helleputte. Harelbeke hasn't got a good team. Personnally I thouhtr they would make it mainly because Helleputte is a real good coach. Still he didn't make it. Harelbeke is last in the table with only 7 points , they conceded 55 goals in only 16 games
and it has been over a month that they won a point.All good reasons to sack a coach (although I don't say that would be smart).
Still that has nothing to do with Helleputte's sacking this morning. No, the coach was sacked because the new sponsors wanted to bring their own man. that man will be Gerd Zeise. "Gerd Zeise", you might ask, "who the hell is Gerd Zeise"? Wel I have absoultely no idea.
Still it doens't end there. The new sponsors also wanted to appoit a technical director. This function will be for Enver Alesic. Now that guy I do know. In 94-95 and a part of 95-96 he was coach at Genk. everybody considered him not only as a tacktical and megalomanic retard, it was also know to bring in his own players and make large amounts of money by doing so. This costed Genk lots and lots of money.
Now I know I'm a pretentious guy, but I can and will not believe that I know that, but the harelbeke-board doesn't. So can anybody please answer this question:
Why does a board agree to a deal where they have to accept that one of the most important positions in the club is filled in by an utterly corrupt, crazy guy ???
