Herman Helleputte is the new Technical Youth coordinator of K. Lierse S.K. Helleputte succeeds Ives Serneels in the role, who recently became Technical Director of the National Ladies Team.
TD Ruud Kaiser: “Herman still has a contract for several years with the club and there has been discussion amongst the board of the club for some time to bring Herman back into a role. It was also quickly apparent that Herman was motivated to work with the youth set up. There was space there because of the departure of Ives Serneels. Herman is a born and bred Lier man and will perform this function with heart and soul. He will have three important tasks. Firstly he has to ensure the further development of our youth trainers. Next to that he will be responsible for the framework and education of the technical development of our youth players. Finally he'll be responsible along with myself for internal scouting, i.e. the evaluation of the youth players who could potentially feed through to the first team. Herman will take on his new role immediately today, as the start of the season is imminent.”
