Date of birth: 22 March 1974

Coaching career: Club Brugge (caretaker, assistant), Waasland-Beveren, Genk, Club Brugge
• A utility player who could operate in midfield or at full-back, Clement came through the ranks at Beerschot but was soon snapped up by Genk, helping them win the Belgian Cup and finish runners-up in the league in 1997/98. After an injury-plagued year in England with Coventry, returned to Belgium in 1999, signing for Club Brugge.
• Swiftly became a key figure at the Jan Breydelstadion, where he formed a defensive shield in front of the back line. Clement lifted the Belgian Cup again in 2002 and 2004 and the Belgian First Division title in 2002/03 and 2004/05.
• Added a further Belgian Cup success in 2007 before bringing down the curtain on his playing days with two seasons back at Beerschot.
• Clement made his Belgium debut against Norway in March 1998 and played two games in the FIFA World Cup finals later that year; a non-playing squad member at UEFA EURO 2000, he won 38 caps in a nine-year international career.
• After retiring as a player in 2011, he returned to Club Brugge as a scout, working as assistant coach between 2012 and 2017 and having two spells in caretaker charge of the first team. Struck out on his own at Waasland-Beveren in May 2017, making such a positive early impression that he was appointed by Genk that December; led the club to the league title in 2018/19 before leaving for Club Brugge that summer and promptly overseeing the club's immediate return to the UEFA Champions League group stage in August 2019.
Date of birth: 4 September 1953
Playing career: Adana Demirspor, Galatasaray
Coaching career: Ankaragücü, Göztepe, Turkey Under-21s, Turkey (three times), Galatasaray (four times), Fiorentina, AC Milan
• A central defender, Terim represented Galatasaray for over a decade, winning three Turkish caps, and played 51 games for Turkey, 32 as captain. Began his coaching career with Ankaragücü and Göztepe, before being named assistant to national team boss Sepp Piontek and put in charge of the U21s in 1990.
• Appointed Turkey coach in 1993, Terim led them to EURO '96. They lost all their matches in England, but just getting to the final tournament, Turkey's first since the 1954 FIFA World Cup, was a major landmark.
• Returned to Galatasaray after the EURO, winning four league titles, two domestic cups and the 2000 UEFA Cup. Serie A came calling and Terim took the helm at Fiorentina and Milan before rejoining Galatasaray; however, a run of disappointing results brought about a temporary retirement in 2004.
• Reappointed Turkey coach in 2005, Terim – known as 'İmparator' (The Emperor) for his leadership skills – steered them to the UEFA EURO 2008 semi-finals but could not guide them to the World Cup in either 2006 or 2010, the latter prompting his departure.
• Back for a third spell as Galatasaray boss in July 2011, in his first season he inspired Cimbom to their first Süper Lig crown in four years. Repeated the feat in 2013 when also helping Galatasaray to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. Named head of the national team for a third time – on a part-time basis – in August 2013, he parted company with Galatasaray a month later to assume the role full time. Was unable to lead Turkey to the 2014 World Cup, but did take them to UEFA EURO 2016. Took over at Galatasaray once again in December 2017, ending that season with another league title – 12 months later, Terim guided Galatasaray to their seventh Turkish league and cup double and third under his command.
