STVV is facing a historic season, as this year the club celebrates its 100th anniversary. Ahead of this, the Canaries are taking an important step: none other than Thorsten Fink will become the new head coach. "Fink is a very experienced coach who wants to roll up his sleeves and has a real winner's mentality. That is why he is the ideal candidate to lead STVV in this anniversary season."
While the Belgian league is on its last legs, STVV is already preparing for the new season. In appointing the new coach, the board once again went for "Deutsche Qualität". Thorsten Fink, a former Champions League winner with Bayern Munich, brings a wealth of experience and a strong work ethic to the Tiensesteenweg. 2 times champion and cup winner with FC Basel, cup and Super Cup winner with Vissel Kobe, Fink achieved successes as a coach in several countries.
Now, the German is ready for his next challenge in the Jupiler Pro League: "I am thrilled to join STVV and be part of a club with such a rich history and passionate fans. The fact that we are on the eve of our 100th season makes it extra special. Together with the staff and the players, we will do everything we can to make it a memorable year," said the brand new coach of the Canaries. Fink brings along his trusted assistant Sebastian Hahn, with whom he has formed a tandem for eight years.
