It was too much defeat for the title champion.
Indeed, the former coach of the Zebras saw his men fall in front of La Gantoise, the defeat seems too much.
Despite ambitious recruiting, the title champion has never been able to emerge this season or win under Mazzu's command.
Ninth in JPL, the Champions League campaign is also not a success at the game level, apart from an encouraging result against Napoli and a game against the Reds at Anfield.
The board had thus announced that the match against Ghent was very important and meant that Mazzu had to win it.
So Genk should officially announce Mazzu's departure shortly before seeking a new coach.
