Royal Antwerp have appointed Marc Grosjean as their new coach on Sunday, succeeding Dojcin Perazic who was sacked on Friday.

Grosjean coincidentally, was the first coach to be sacked in Belgium this season when he was fired by Mons at the end of September. He becomes the third man to manage Antwerp in this season following Perazic and Rene Desaeyere.

“My goal is that Antwerp stays in the first division,” Grosjean told reporters.

Antwerp lie second from bottom in the 18-team division with just three league wins from 17 games.
