After almost eight months, the time of Stefan Krämer at the Kas Eupen is already over again. The Belgian first division announced on Wednesday that the German was released from his duties.
Thus, the KAS reacted to the already long-lasting negative run: The Eupeners could win only one of the last 17 league games. “Unfortunately, the earnings crisis of the last weeks and our current sporting situation have caused us to separate ourselves from Stefan Krämer as head coach of the 1st team”, Director-General Christoph Henkel establishes the coach change in a club message. Krämer already trained in Germany Arminia Bielefeld, Energy Cottbus, Red White Erfurt, the KFC Uerdingen and the 1st FC Magdeburg. Eupen was his first station abroad.
Small upholstery on the relegation place
Despite the dismissory, Henkel thanked his former coach, especially for the integration of the youth players: “Even if we were not able to build on the outstanding start to the season, Stefan Krämer made it, young players from their own junior department to the squad of the 1. Incert the team and help some of them to a successful debut in Belgian professional football, “says Henkel.
A successor is already found: The previous co-trainer Michael Valkanis is promoted to the chef coach. He should give the team new impulses in the relegation battle. Currently, the sports association occupies the 15th place in the table and has four points ahead of the relegation place.
