Grandiose Sunday, the Burkinabé goalkeeper sets himself a benchmark in the Pro League.
When he does not deflect penalties (already three this season, including two on Sunday against Genk) or when he does not jump on all the balls that approach his goal, Hervé Koffi laughs and dances. He is one of the great animators of the carolo cloakroom. That doesn’t stop him from working hard when it comes to training. The Burkinabe international is a bit of a whimsical goalkeeper but very professional, picky. On his equipment and his lifestyle.
Sunday against Genk (2-0), he delivered a five-star service. Without him, Charleroi would never, ever have won. “Hervé continues to improve. He is a boy who has unimaginable relaxation and incredible flexibility ”, comments Eric Deleu, his former goalkeeper coach last season at Mouscron. “He also proved, on penalties from Onuachu, that he was very strong mentally.”
For Philippe Vande Walle, former “TK” notably of the Red Devils, it was above all a day of glory. He tempers: “Koffi was able to take advantage of an ideal match scenario. This happens when a goalkeeper, who is already in great shape, can count on the baraka at the same time. But he still proved that his team could trust him. ”
