Ghanaian forward Joseph Paintsil has heaped praise on current Genk coach Hannes Wolf after offering the chance to play again for the first team.

Painstil has been integrated back into the first team after being frozen out by former coach Felice Mazzu.

He has featured in two games under the current manager and says he's elated to be back into the first team.

"Of course I was very surprised to find myself back in the basics. The trainer talked to me beforehand, with all the players by the way," the 21-year-old said.

"He gives the whole team a new adrenaline  and pushes everyone forward.

"He told me to keep pushing even if I made mistakes and that gave me confidence."
