John van den Brom is surprised that FC Utrecht let him go to KRC Genk so easily. The club management immediately announced that it was open to the coach’s departure.
“No, actually not”, Van den Brom responds in conversation with De Telegraaf to the question whether he expected Utrecht to let him go so quickly. “They said almost immediately that it was negotiable. In the conversation with Jordy (technical director Zuidam, ed.) It turned out very quickly that he was open to it, just like I did.
The stories that there was no more chemistry between Van den Brom and the players the trainer dismiss as nonsense. “There was no chemistry in the match against Heracles. I blame the players for that, but also myself.”
According to The Telegraph Genk also showed interest six weeks ago. Van den Brom confirms this. “Yes, but not only Genk showed interest. I just said ‘no’ to everyone, because I was in my place and had the trust of the club. We wanted to create something great together. Now it felt like the moment: for me and for the club. “
