Kevin De Bruyne and Thibaut Courtois, both risen out of KRC Genk, are nominated for the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award. Rightfully deserved for their astonishing seasons. And a unique situation, as both players evolved from the KRC Genk Talent Academy to the first squad before launching towards amazing international careers.

Fingers crossed for our Genkies, with the winner being announced this evening at 18h00.
