White smoke should arrive soon

After several weeks, the negotiation for Charles De Ketelaere’s move to AC Milan is now in its final stages. The Belgian talent is not even training with Bruges anymore.

As explained in a press conference by the Belgians’ coach, Carl Hoefkens: “I want everyone on the field to be able to give their all at all times,” he said. “For Charles, it was no longer possible to give everything. He indicated that he was becoming too heavy mentally and was afraid of injury. So he stopped training with the group.”

The coach is not disappointed with De Ketelaere: “I have known him for a long time and have been closely involved in his growth. Sometimes it happens there are other thoughts, that might be the case now,” so Hoefkens. “If he were to leave, I would advise him to continue doing what he has been doing here for a long time.
