Surprise in the works: transfer-free Buijs suddenly shows up in Belgium

A surprise is in the works: Danny Buijs will be the new trainer of KV Mechelen, sources report to this website after reports from Het Nieuwsblad and De Cceit. After four seasons of FC Groningen, Buijs was free on the transfer market and therefore available.
Mechelen hopes to present Buijs in the short term. Mechelen became enthusiastic about Buijs because he is known as ‘a passionate and tactical strong coach with an eye for youth’, writes Het Nieuwsblad, which cites Bjรถrn Meijer‘s transfer. The left-back makes the switch from FC Groningen to Club Brugge for six million euros.
Buijs took his first steps as head coach in professional football at Groningen. Prior to that, he was head coach of Cossack Boys. Buijs started badly at Groningen, was allowed to stay seated and then performed reasonably to well, given the available resources. This season was less, but it must be said that Groningen’
s selection was less than before. He maintained a difficult relationship with technical director Mark-Jan Fledderus.
