Kortrijk’s Comorian international Faiz Selemani has told Het Nieuwsblad that he regrets not joining league leaders Genk in the summer. Genk offered Selemani a contract, however the winger believed that the proposed salary was too low. Selemani said “I am still dissapointed that the transfer fell through. I really wanted to go to Genk”.
The 29 year-old also revealed that he could have joined Egyptian giants Al Ahly, but the deal also fell through. With the January transfer window imminent, there could be more opportunities for Selemani to leave Kortrijk. The player claims that he is open to offers, but for now is happy to stay and give his all to Kortrijk.
Last season Selemani played 29 matches for the Kerels, scoring 13 goals and providing five assists. Since returning from injury this season, the Comorian has played 12 matches, scoring four times and providing one assist, with one of the goals coming against Genk.
Selemani was part of the Comoros side that made history by being the first side in the nations history to qualify for the African Cup of Nations. The side made the last 16 before being beaten by hosts Cameroon.
