oach of Belgian Side Genk Peter Maes has reportedly lost his job at Belgian side Genk after a disagreement over Wilfred Ndidi transfer to English Champions Leicester City, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.
Ndidi will still as expected move to Leicester City for a fee in the region of £15m when the transfer window opens in January but his imminent departure appears to have triggered a disagreement in the team, that has claimed coach Maes.
Maes was promised by the management of the team that Ndidi will remained at the club till the summer before joining Leicester City but was disappointed when he later discovered that the 19 year old will join “The Foxes” on the 1st of January.
Although the club have moved swiftly to replace the Nigerian, Maes felt broken by the club’s decision and that fractured his relationship with the club management which eventually lead to his sack.
However the club played down the row as the reason behind his departure citing their poor run of form in the league as the reason why he was axed less than 24 hours to their cup game against KV Oostende.
