KAS Eupen has renewed its contract with goalkeeper coach Gil Diaz until the end of the season. Gil Diaz moved up from the KAS Eupen youth department to the first team in December, taking over, at first on a temporary basis, from Javi Ruiz who had transferred to the Chinese 1st Division. Following the training camp in Doha, Gil Diaz again had to stand in, this time for Mamadou Lamine. Due to the magnificent work he is doing and at the express request of the three goalkeepers in the professional squad, KAS Eupen has renewed its contract with Gil Diaz until the end of the season.
KAS CEO Christoph Henkel is pleased with this in-house solution to finding a replacement goalkeeper coach: “We’re all very pleased with the work being done by Gil Diaz and our goalkeepers also want to continue working with him. We are therefore pleased to announce that Gil Diaz will be supporting us as a first-team coach until the end of the season. In this decisive phase of the League championship, continuity and reliability are going to be very important factors in the routine work of our professional squad.”
