RFC Seraing have fired their first team manager Peter Kerremans for the second time. According to La Dernière Heure, Kerremans has been removed with immediate effect and replaced by press officer Julien Renson. It remains unclear why Kerrmans has been fired.
Kerremans, a former goalkeeper for the club, was fired in 2021 following an incident involving the use of false COVID tests while Seraing were in the second tier. However, he was rehired by the club after the Disciplinary Committee of the Belgian Union abandoned the proceedings.
The Liege based side currently sit in 14th place with 10 points from 11 matches. The side have done better than expected, given that many expected them to be rock bottom for the majority of the season. Jose Jeunechamps side have historically had a close relationship with FC Metz, from whom they have loaned players such as Georges Mikautadze, Ablie Jallow and Youssef Maziz.
This season it appeared that Metz were going to be unwilling to send players to Belgium given their relegation to Ligue 2. However, before the end of the transfer window Vagner, Mathieu Cachbach and Sami Lahssaini, the former two who were there last season, were allowed to join the club.
Another Metz player, goalkeeper Guilaume Dietsch, also had his loan period extended. Unfortunately Dietsch recently broke his fibula and will be out for a number of weeks.
