New structure in the sports section

After sports director Josep Colomer left KAS Eupen for personal reasons, KAS Eupen is restructuring the sports section. The responsibilities for scouting and the sports management of the club will be reallocated.

The new Director for Scouting is Siegfried Marti, who has been Head Scout of FSV Mainz 05 until now. Prior to that Siegfried Marti worked in scouting for Werder Bremen and FC Cologne in responsible positions as well as a lecturer at the German Sports University Cologne. Siegfried Marti is a graduated sports teacher and holds the football teacher license as the DFB’s highest coaching license.

KAS Director General Christoph Henkel explained: “Our goal is to further optimize our national and international player scouting as the basis for sporting success in the medium and long term. With Siggi Marti, we have succeeded in engaging one of the most experienced scouts in the Bundesliga. With his many years of experience within three Bundesliga clubs and his excellent knowledge of the Belgian, Dutch, French and German language leagues in particular, we are ideally positioned for the future. We have known Siggi Marti for many years, appreciate his scouting philosophy and look forward to a very trusting and close cooperation. Welcome to Siggi!”

Christoph Henkel will assume the leading function in the sports division. With immediate effect, the General Director of KAS Eupen will be General Director/Sport Director of KAS Eupen.

Board member Dr. Andreas Bleicher: “After the regrettable departure of Josep Colomer, we had to reposition ourselves in the sports sector. As a team with Christoph Henkel and with the outstanding support of our entire administration, we mastered a transfer period with over 40 transfers in/out in the best possible way. Christoph Henkel enjoys our fullest confidence in taking over the position of General Manager and Director of Sport together in our team. With Siggi Marti as Director of Scouting and Christoph Henkel in his new double function, we are ideally equipped for future sporting challenges.”
