Nigerian trio gets new coach in Belgium


The trio of Nigerian players, forward Taiwo Awoniyi, midfielder Anderson Esiti and winger Philip Azango will resume under new coach after the international break.

The Belgian Jupiler league side KAA Gent has appointed Denmark’s coach Jesse Thorup as their new manager.

Gent parted ways with their former coach Yves Vanderhaeghe following a not too impressive performance in the new season.

The club confirmed this appointment via its official twitter handle on Wednesday afternoon.

Awoniyi joined the team on loan from Liverpool after having a successful loan spell with Mouscron also in the Belgian league.

Azango on his part joined from Slovakia side Trencin while Esiti has been with the team for quite a while.
