Karelis scored in the 1-1 draw against Standard Liege but the result was not enough to see them through to the next round of the Belgian Cup.
However, Karelis expressed his happiness from his Genk displays so far as he looks in a decent form since he joined them in January.
“I’m glad that I scored. This is always good for a striker. I feel really good at Genk and I’m always getting better. It was good to score a goal but when the team lose that’s not good enough. If we had scored an away goal in the first leg we would have had more faith in the second leg,” Karelis underlined.
