They lead the belgian league with nine points down to Club Bruges and Antwerp, and on the whole it has so far been an excellent season for Genk, who are also still in the Europa League.
While Marcus Ingvartsen large one had not had a role on the team, right back Joakim Mæhle been the regular man on the team, and according to Johan Boskamp has Mæhle storspillet.
the Dutchman Boskamp is a big voice in belgium, where he over a long number of years was in charge of clubs like Anderlecht, Genk, Genk and Standard Liege, just as he had trænerjob, among others, in England. Now analyze the he matches.
Even though he just has problems with Mæhles nationality, he is enthusiastic about what he has seen from Genks right back.
- Mæhle, he is Norwegian, isn't it? He is attacking the excellent. He is perhaps the best right back in Belgium. The positioning should still be better, but it's gonna get for the kid. He can also still improve its matches, says the dutchman to Het Laaste Nieuws and explains why he believes Mæhle is better than some of the other backs in the belgian football:
- Mæhle has many more fodboldmæssige qualities. (Collins) Fai, and (Luis Pedro) Cavanda (both from Standard Liege, red.) have not quite the same class. The defender maybe a little better, sounds among other Boskamp.
Joakim Mæhle, 21 years old, moved to Genk back in 2017 from AaB. He was in January the subject of bids from English Southampton, and this summer is expected that the Danish back in Niels Frederiksen's U21-landsholdstrup, who take to the U21-european championship in Italy.
