Gent won the Belgian Cup on penalties on Monday after the final against Anderlecht in Brussels finished 0-0 following extra time.

Ashimeru, who was making an injury return suffered one other setback 16 minutes on the pitch, and had to be compelled off.

Ashimeru will miss the remainder of the season following his latest injury.

Meanwhile, the coach of Anderlecht Vincent Kompany has defined the explanation for fielding the Ghanaian regardless of being unfit.

“You always give a little more to play the final,” justifies Kompany. “We could use his profile at the end of the match. I felt that Gent’s midfield was tiring and that we could dominate them, and take control. Unfortunately, he felt his knee and had to give way to Kana, whose rise to the game I highlight.”
