As reported by Voetblakrant, a fight between Sint-Truiden assistant coach Lamine Cisse and physical trainer Sebastian Klein has resulted in Cisse being fired by the club. The Senegalese coach, who has also spent time with Wurzburg Kickers and Mouscron, retired from football in 2010 after spending most of his career in Germany.
The report also indicates that this is not the first time Klein has been involved in an altercation at the club. Two months ago the trainer was involved in an argument within the club, but it did not become physical like this incident did. Klein was absent from training today due to medical reasons.
Bern Hollerbach and presumably the rest of his close staff are set to depart the club in the summer. It is not yet known who will take over from the German head coach, with the club’s Japanese ownership promising the fans that more will be revealed in April.
