Ghana international and KRC Genk midfielder Bennard Yao Kumordzi says he is thrilled over his club's progress to the final of the Belgian Cup at he expense of giants Anderlecht.
A determined Genk denied Anderlecht final berth in the Belgian Cup by winning the second-leg semi-final tie 1-0 on Saturday to tie the aggregate at 1-1 before proceeding to win the ensuing penalty shoots 7-6.
Kumordzi who lasted 106th minute of the clash states hard work by the entire team earned them the final berth reward.
“I cant really explain how i feel but it’s a great moment for us the players, management and our fans as well. We never gave up. We knew we were going to get the final nod,” the Ghanaian said.
"With determination and teamwork we made it so I’m very elated but it doesn’t end here whichever team we play in the final we will go in with the same mentality and win the ultimate.”
Genk will face off with the aggregate winner from the other semi-final between Kortrijk, and the 2012 Belgian Cup runners up, Cercle Brugge.
The Belgian Cup final will be played on May 9, 2013 and Kumordzi’s Genk will be hoping to win the Belgian Cup for a fourth time.
