As of the sportive development within the last weeks in combination with the current standings KAS Eupen arrived at the decision to set a new stimulus to successfully master the upcoming challenges by engaging a new head-coach. Board and Directorate explicitly and cordially thank Jordi Condom for his exemplary commitment and his successful work during the last years with the highlights being promotion, staying in first division and Cup Semi-Final. The appreciation for Jordi Condom can also be seen in the fact that KAS Eupen offered him a new scope within the Club. After his highly intensive term in Eupen Jordi Condom prefers to look for a new challenge. All staff members wish him good luck and all the very best for his future. The door in Eupen always stays open for Jordi and his family.
