Vertonghen away from Anderlecht? Opponent makes prediction

Vertonghen away from Anderlecht? Opponent makes prediction

Jan Vertonghen announced the end of his international career on Friday. The European Championship in Germany is therefore the last achievement in his rich career as a Red Devil. However, he has not yet made a decision at club level.

The defender turned 37 at the end of April and now has a formidable record in professional football. Back then, he made his debut for Ajax as a teenager. There, he also grew into a strong man. He later became a regular at Tottenham Hotspur for many years.

In the autumn of his career, Vertonghen also spent several seasons at Benfica, before moving to RSC Anderlecht. In the meantime, he has rarely missed a game for the Red Devils. With over 150 caps under his belt, he has been the Belgian international record for some time now.

RSCA is waiting

For many years, Vertonghen worked on a particularly busy match schedule. And this of course left its mark. Physically and mentally. After a disappointing European Championship, the defender decided to retire from the national team after years of loyal service.

At club level, he is keeping all options open for now. However, it is no secret that Anderlecht would like to continue with him. And while they will likely only make a final decision after or during his vacation, the Purple & Whites seem to have a good chance of getting another year out of Vertonghen.

mental issue

Damien Marc, who played for Charleroi last season and is therefore a rival of Anderlecht and Vertonghen, already doubts he will continue. “I think he will continue at Anderlecht,” he said. No vestige“He was one of the best players last season, he kept the house straight. Thanks to him, Anderlecht was very strong and physically strong. At this age you are guided by the mental side. If the mind wants to continue, the body will follow.”
