He had revived Anderlecht’s fortunes since returning to his youth club, which led them to third place this season.
Burnley’s six-year spell in the Premier League ended with relegation on its final day, despite caretaker boss Mike Jackson’s best efforts to keep up.

sports post heard Burnley recently turned down a loan being offered at a relatively modest six percent interest rate because they were confident they would stay.
They will now revisit the lending markets and attempt to refinance the terms of a previous loan from MSD Capital.
The relegation means the club will face the early repayment of a significant part of a £65m loan given to owners ALK Capital to complete their takeover in 2020, on top of losing more than £100m in television money.
Striker Ashley Barnes has agreed to a one-year contract extension to stay with the club.
