Gyorgy Csepregi is the new technical coordinator of Beerschot
Gyorgy Csepregi is the new technical coordinator of Beerschot. The 46-year-old former player of Cercle Brugge and Roeselare was the head scout of United World last season and now moves to Beerschot. Where he will be leading the technical department. "I will focus on youth development and transparent communication between team, coaches and management.”
Csepregi played football until 2006, first with Hungarian side Honved Budapest, then with Belgian clubs Cercle Brugge, Roeselare and Knokke. When his career in football came to an end due to an injury, he remained active in the Belgian football scene. The past year he was head scout of United World. So he knows Beerschot and Belgian football.
"I know the situation I’m coming in to very well," Csepregi smiled on Wednesday afternoon. "I was already involved in all Beerschot's transfers this transfer window and it won't be any different now. Although it will be in a new role. The fact that I already know the club and Belgian football obviously plays to my advantage."
Csepregi's vision also fits Beerschot perfectly. "I always want to focus on youth development, as Beerschot did this transfer window. Not only by attracting good young players, but also by giving opportunities to our own academy players. On top of that, I stand for open and transparent communication to players, coaches and management. Clarity is the best policy."
Gyorgy Csepregi will also be in the technical committee with General Manager Frédéric Van den Steen, Academy Manager Davy De Smedt, Coach Andreas Wieland and U23 coach Cederique Tulleners. That committee will continue to be advised by Marc Noé and dr. Nick Jansen and will work closely with United World's Football Business Development team, headed by CEO Abdullah Al Ghamdi and Director Of Recruitment Steven Vanharen.
