Eerder vandaag kwam het bericht dat STVV vandaag nog in Japanse handen zou komen. Dit werd ontkracht door STVV, waarop enkele uren later de huidige trainer  Bartolom√© ontslagen werd.

Volgens Yahoo is de nieuwe coach van Sibt-Truiden al bekend: Mr Masahiro Shimoda (50). 

Hieronder volgt een stukje van de letterlijke vertaling:
