KRC Genk assistant trainer Hans Visser has described Ghana international midfielder Bennard Kumordzi as a ‘tireless road warrior’ and hailed his dynamic qualities in midfield. 

The 28-year-old remains one of the key players at the Cristal Arena since arriving two seasons ago as a free agent after quitting French side Dijon.

Kumordzi’s dynamism allows him to fit perfectly into a rotational KRC Genk midfield and score important goals for the club.

After arriving from France, the former Panionios man needed to adapt to the style of the Belgian Pro League which he did with some perspicacity and patience.

Visser reveals the Ghanaian brings something extra to the team.

“Last year, when he came here, he sat with a conditional behind and he had to adapt to our way of playing and coaching, so he needed some more time to settle. He is a super professional, always as you need it. Bennard moreover is well aware that he has to work and that he sometimes has to exercise patience. I do not see any way that he took many steps forward,” he told Sportmagazine Knack.

“Especially European, in the away games, we used Kumordzi something more, because we are more office in a 4-3-3 formation. That extra midfielder, you need at that level, the higher speed and intensity. A silent but golden guest.”

Kumordzi, who was targeted by Arsenal in the past has won laurels at Genk in his two season spell as he scored in the final of the Belgian Cup last season and lifted the trophy.

He has also helped Genk to go beyond where they reached in the Europa League last season.
