Peter Maes is Beerschot’s new trainer. The Antwerp first division announced this on Thursday. De Limburger signed a contract until 2024 at Het Kiel.
“Peter Maes is a trainer with a strong personality. The choice for him was easy, ”says chairman Francis Vrancken. “I am convinced that with all his experience he is the most suitable trainer for Beerschot. He will happily lead us through our second year in 1A. ”
“By hiring Peter Maes, the club has clearly opted for experience,” says vice-chairman Walter Damen. “Everyone knows that a second season in 1A is not always the easiest. Peter Maes is therefore a logical choice. I hope to experience at least as much football fun with him as during last season. ”
In the course of last season Maes switched to STVV. There he ensured that the Limburgers managed to secure themselves with attractive and fiery football. Maes now also wants to bring that to the Kiel.
“I chose Beerschot because as a trainer I always want to aim as high as possible. I want to play dominant football and I think the Beerschot fans want that too. In my time as a player I got to know Beerschot as a warm and hard-working club and I also want to see that zeal in the football that we bring. ”
