Lyle Foster gets new coach in Belgium


On October 7 Belgian Jupiler League side Cercle Brugge sacked Fabien Mercadal after the club had a shaky start to the 2019/20 season.
It did not take long before they found a replacement with German technician Bernd Storch being given the reigns and an opportunity to turn things around for the club.
Cercle Brugge are currently bottom of the log standings with three points from 10 games played so far.
The struggles for the club are mostly caused by the fact that it is a feeder club mostly for the bigger clubs in Belgium and its affiliated clubs like AS Monaco in France so each season they struggle because they must start afresh after every season.
FARPost International Football Writer Prince Sobayeni with Lyle Foster.
Known for his strict no-nonsense approach in his set up Storck has hit the ground running already as he prepares to take on Charleroi over the weekend in the league.
The record of the German mentor speaks volumes having coached the Hungary national team and more recently, top division Belgian side Excel Royal Mouscron last season where he helped them to a 10th place finish.
The 56-year-old has been welcomed very warmly by Brugge fans with the hope that he will bring good fortunes at the club.
Teenage South African striker Lyle Foster was a regular under Mercadal even though the striker has not yet scored a goal for his loan club he is one of the key players for the club and hopefully with the new coach, he would continue getting playing opportunities and hopefully he will start banging in the goals as the season goes towards the halfway mark.
