Late last night, RWDM released a statement that said they had parted ways with head coach Vincent Euvrard and his entire backroom staff. There had been rumours at the start of the summer that Euvrard would leave RWDM, but as we got closer to the start of the new season it appeared that he would be there to lead them into the 2023/2024 season.
However, the club have made the move and in a statement thanked Euvrard and his staff for helping RWDM to gain promotion to the first tier of Belgian football.
Club President John Textor added ‘During his time at the club, Vincent has shown his ability to coach at the highest level in European football and I am confident that he will achieve great success in his career. While our decision takes into account his strong leadership of our club in the most recent seasons, it is also with an eye to the future that we aim to lay the foundations for consistent success in the first division and, ultimately, in Europe’.
It has certainly been a turbulent summer at the Brussels side, with Textor’s appointment of himself as President causing much anger amongst the fans. This latest move appears to have further upset the supporters, and the club will need to make the right appointment to help keep the fans on side.
RWDM will open their season against Genk, a side that challenged for the title right up until the final day of the season.
