In an interview with Het Nieuwsblad, Oostende CEO Gauthier Ganaye has said that current head coach Dominik Thalhammer will remain in his post until the end of the season. This comes despite the club being on a six game losing streak in the league, which has left them second bottom and three points from safety.
Thalhammer took over from former Kortrijk manager Yves Vanderhaeghe. Ironically, this was the second time that Thalhammer had taken over a club that had been recently managed by Vanderhaeghe, having done the same with Cercle Brugge during the 2021/2022 season. Earlier this season the Austrian was sacked by Cercle Brugge and replaced by Miron Muslic.
The side have been incredibly active during the winter transfer window, bringing in a number of players as they look to reverse the team’s fortunes. Kelvin Arase recently joined form Karlsruher on loan until the end of the season.
Striker Ivan Durdov, defender Matej Rodin and midfielder Pierre Dwomoh have all joined in recent weeks.
