TRANSFERS Vincent Kompany would have liked Karim Belhocine to have stayed with Anderlecht. Kompany liked that Belhocine was close to the players. The Algerian Frenchman preferred the head coach to the assistantship and therefore went to Charleroi.
It took Charleroi the necessary effort to take over Belhocine's two-year contract with Anderlecht. It is Mogi Bayat who proposed Belhocine at Charleroi as a potential coach.
