Jose Riga’s assistant Karel Fraeye has been located and has been appointed as head coach of Belgium Division 3 side VW Hamme.
A penny for Fraeye’s thoughts then as he returns home to East Flanders in north Belgium, but Hamme represent a level higher than his last job in Belgium at Eendracht Zele.
Horribly translated this is what Karel said about his time at The Valley:
“I look back on that with a fantastic feeling adventure. It was an intense period with each two matches per week, but I have learned a lot. I cannot thank Mr Duchâtelet enough for this opportunity, but on the other hand, I would also continue to develop as head coach. Hence the choice for VW Van Hamme. Hamme is for me a step forward in my development. Charlton I regard as an unexpected chance to sample the profleven, but i do not want to skip steps. Mr Duchâtelet understand my choice and supports me 100% because in addition to the work at Van Hamme I will also continue to make analyzes and scoutingsverslagen for the network, just as the past half year. I will also have a coordinating role for his network.”
An interesting last couple of sentences.
Thank you Karel for everything you did in SE7.
