Darren Keet is a happy man in Belgium after his club OH Leuven were promoted despite losing in the promotion play-off final.
Leuven lost 5-1 on aggregate against Beerschot but a decision by the Jupiler Pro league board to extend the 2020/21 season to 18 teams promoting the two finalists from the second division meant that Leuven still got promoted anyway.
The format in Belgium is that the league is split into two halves with the first half taking place between August and December with the second half starting after January.
The two teams who win the two halves make it to the playoff final and battle it out with the winner winning promotion to the top flight, but in this case, both Beerschot and OH Leuven were promoted.
Keet will be pleased to return to the Pro League after having previously played there with Kortrijk before his return to South Africa to join Bidvest Wits.
