Felice Mazzu returns to Charleroi for second spell in charge

Charleroi have announced former Union St Gilloise and Anderlecht manager Felice Mazzu is set for his second spell in charge of the club. Mazzu had a successful six years at the club between 2013 and 2019 before departing the Zebras for an ill fated time in charge of Genk.

Mazzu rebuilt his career in Brussels with Union, returning them to the top tier of Belgian football and qualifying for European football in their first season back in the top flight. However, Mazzu departed for fellow Brussels based side Anderlecht, where he replaced legendary Mauves defender Vincent Kompany. Unfortunately, Mazzu failed to recreate his success at Union and was sacked at the end of October.

Charleroi are currently in 12th in the Belgian Pro League, with 19 points from 16 games. They have won 6 and lost 9, with just one draw. Mazzu will take over on the 28th of November, with his first game in charge being against his former side Anderlecht on the 23rd of December.
