Ghana international Joseph Paintsil is looking forward to Genk’s league encounter with Kortrijk after win over Anderlecht in the Belgium Cup this week.

Kortrijk will play host to log leaders, Genk on Monday, December 26 in match week 18 as the Belgian Jupiler Pro League resumes.

Paintsil was unplayable when his side defeated Anderlecht in the Belgium Cup this season. The red-hot forward's extra-time goal ensured Genk beat Anderlecht to progress to the last eight of the competition.

His 95th-minute strike was enough to send Genk through to the next round of the Belgian Cup. He was also named Man of the Match.

Speaking after the game, Paintsil, who is looking forward to his side league clash against Kortrijk has set sights on getting a good result in the encounter.

Asked about his sides chances of winning the Cup, he said, “We just take one game step by step, as you can see we take this game and the next game is the league match against Kortrijk. We look forward to see how it goes and we will do everything possible to have a good result”

Despite his top form, the former Tema Youth star was excluded from the Black Stars squad for the World Cup 2022, where Ghana exited group stage.

Paintsil has been in superb form for Genk this season having scored 8 goals in 16 appearances in all competitions and providing 6 assists in the process.
