Speaking to HVBL, Bryan Heynen was asked about his chances of going to the World Cup in Qatar this winter. “My biggest problem, I think, is that I fall between two generations. I was still too young when the current squad of thirty somethings and near thirties was formed, and I do not belong to the young group that is prepared for the changing of the guard”.
The Genk captain has been one of the standout players for the side this season, with five goals scored from midfield already, including a late winner against Gent. Heynen came through the Genk academy before graduating to the first team, who currently sit second in the league behind Antwerp. This weekends fixture with OH Leuven will be his 180th in the Pro League.
Following their game with Leuven, Genk will face Westerlo in the midweek fixtures, before a table topping clash away to Antwerp on the 23rd of October.
