Looks very raw and his end product needs lots of work but at 19 and scoring 1 in 2 he has the time.

Looks very exciting but then we always go mad on a YouTube vid!

I watched the first minute and thought if that's his first minutes of highlights then raw is one way of putting it....that finish on 23 seconds!!

All the exceptional Belgian players were once in that pub standard league. This lad is clearly a few levels above the likes of Henen, judging by the competition for his signature and the fact that the Belgian champions want him for their first team, even if it's just for one season on loan.

Plus the only youtube video anyone had of Henen when he signed was a slow motion 40 yard pass across the pitch. As opposed to top scorer with 22 in a top flight league at 19. No guarantees of how good he will be but it's definitely a better starting point.

I assumed as only other person who had a strong negative opinion, had the good grace to admit they had stopped watching after a minute. With dribblers, they often start the video with the 'not quite' clips.

He was averaging 1 in 1 in last dozen games. This goal was against team who finished 2nd in the league.


It was the shot on 56 seconds of the video in the original post that finished me off. Couldnt grasp why in a highlights video on youtube someone would put a shot in that goes about 30 yards wide!!

Did he play in the game against Celtic?

Yes he played left wing. He had some really good moments, did look their main threat but he was very hit and miss. Reminded me a bit of how Lookman plays but seems to be a bit more aware of situations than Lookman in terms of where he was trying bits of skill.

Anderlecht were awful though, like 3-0 to Celtic flattered them which given how average Celtic are for them to dominate like that away from home shows the level Anderlecht are at.

He has something and hard to judge given how bad they were, looks like could offer something to the squad but when watching the match I thought he looks like he needs the loan move for development as much as anything else.
