During the event with the partners of the BMW car dealer at Siekhöhe, BG’s CEO Frank Meinertshagen said: “I am very pleased to continue the successful work with the coaching team. The position of head coach is extremely important for a club’s success – continuity in this position is an important building block It has also been an excellent collaboration on a personal level over the past two years. “

Moors said Tuesday night: “I want to enjoy some time with my family, but there will not be much time. Preparations for the new season will go hand in hand.” The Belgian also commented on his sporting goals: “I’m incredibly frustrated with how things went this year. So I’ll definitely do better next season. I’m not going into a new season to get a worse result.”

Moors and Foucart have been in talks with all players for a few days. They can plan with captain Akeem Vargas, record player Mathis Mönninghoff, veteran Harper Kamp and 19-year-old Marios Giotis. Who else returns from the squad from last season will be decided later. However, Moors makes no secret of the fact that he would like to continue working with some players.

Moors, whose family lives in Belgium and regularly visits Göttingen, moved from Bamberg to southern Lower Saxony two years ago and was to form a new team within a very short time. With the violets, he immediately entered the top four for the MagentaSport BBL Cup. In addition, under his leadership, BG confidently secured his place in the league and ended the 2020/21 season under unfavorable conditions (ghost matches, corona quarantine) in a twelfth place in the table. Last season, the Belgian then led the Violets to their best record in seven years. For a long time, the Göttings took a playoff position, but in the end they lacked the necessary luck to create the big surprise. “It’s no secret that I really enjoy working with people here,” Moors says. “BG is an ambitious club that wants to develop a little bit each season. I am happy that we are continuing on the path we have taken together and that I can contribute to this development.”

The 37-year-old Foucart replaced Thomas Crab as BG assistant coach last summer, who had returned to his home country Belgium for personal reasons. “Olivier and I have worked well together – I can always count on his loyalty and commitment,” said Moors of his compatriot, who came on the field for him for the first time in the season’s final match on Sunday against FC Bayern Munich due to the Moors’ suspension. “I’m glad we can continue our very good cooperation.”
