Jess Thorup signed with Racing Genk on September 24, and on November 2, the Dane accepted an offer from FC Copenhagen.
At Genk they do not hide their disappointment after the sudden farewell to the Danish head coach.
“Jess Thorup has decided to return to Denmark immediately and become head coach of FC Copenhagen there”, Genk writes in a press release.
“KRC Genk was informed of that decision yesterday afternoon and it turned out to be irreversible.”
“The club is both surprised and disappointed and regrets that after such a short period and after a series of excellent results, Jess is already leaving us for another challenge.”
“Awaiting the arrival of a new coach, Domenico Olivieri will again lead the training sessions, assisted by Michel Ribeiro.”
In the Genk announcement, Jess Thorup herself is also given the floor.
“From day one I felt at home at KRC Genk. Players, staff, board and everyone in the club form a big family. And Genk is a very nice city where you feel the support for the club”, says Thorup.
“But for me this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: returning to my home country to coach the biggest club in Scandinavia.”
“I saw myself in Genk for many years, but together with my family I decided to seize this opportunity.”
“I want to thank KRC Genk for the opportunity I got and wish everyone in the club the very best.”
