‘ Vincent Tan just bought a new club : KV Kortrijk ‘
it was just announced that Tan bought us. not sure what to think. does this make us sister clubs?
for those who want to know bit more about my team:
we are in the belgian first division again since 2008. are playing for the third time in play off 1 (best six teams after the regular competition, the play offs are organised for the sixth time ) we ended 5th in the regular competition this season.
up to this weekend we were in the running for european football but will be difficult with only three more games left. our trainer renewed his contract three weeks ago but decided to move to another team. the supporters are very angry so not sure if we will have a coach for the three remaining games. our budget is about 8 million euro’s. have about 7000 crowd on average. the teams we dislike the most are zulte waregem and fc bruges. some of the hardcore supporters of kortrijk have ties with swansea since more than 10 years. (sorry lol)
our stadium, game against bruges a couple of weeks ago in play off 1:
