This is gunna be good!
Looking forward to this :)
Club Brugge has a few wonderkids aswell btw, I managed them and a few of the older players had caps for Belgium in their day! speaking of which, Lestienne is somewhat your best player i think, and he's on loan to Genoa this season ^^;
Diazepamell - Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy!

Feliks (loser) - Probably one of your better jokes. The only better joke is your team.

Maximus - You bet it is. SOTM is calling

C94z - Hopefully it doesn't get ruined (FELIKS)

Icarus - Yeah it was really annoying to see he is out on loan. He is a real talent. Thanks for the advice
You got me good.... better slink away to the corner of shame...

Oh hey Club Brugge, what are you doing here?

Newly appointed Anderlecht manager Enzo Scifo has held talks with journalists from around the country today, saying that the youth set up at the club will be crucial in the seasons ahead. The Anderlecht squad currently contains some of the most promising players in the country, including Aleksandar Mitrovic, Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet, whilst some famous players from the academy include Premier League trio Romelu Lukaku, Vincent Kompany and Adnan Januzaj.

"Youth is going to be a huge focus for the club, and myself, as we push forward to becoming a competitive club in Europe. Players like Youri and Dennis are not only the backbone of the future Anderlecht, but have a role to play today. I plan on playing these youngsters throughout the season and moulding them into world beaters."

Youri Tielemans is considered to be the biggest talent in Belgium at present

It is no secret that Anderlecht's youngsters are highly sought after in world football, with Jurgen Klopp revealing that he has plans for signing Tielemans in the near future. Meanwhile, Aleksandar Mitrovic is not expected to be in Anderlecht colours much longer with interest from clubs such as AS Monaco and Napoli.

With a squad of almost half under-21 players, Scifo in reality has no choice but to play his youngsters. However, this youth approach should benefit the club in the long term and maybe one day, RSC Anderlecht can once more produce a world class player like Enzo Scifo.
Never heard of them

top banter lolol

you better renew Praet & Tielemans contract before a big club comes along and snatches them lol
Interesting concept and good luck with utilizing Mitrovic... He was a complete monster for me, when I played with Anderlecht
Xander You will hear of them when they tear you apart in the derby

Icarus Yeah if they leave, they'll be leaving for big bucks

Audere Mitrovic is gonna be the future of the club - if I can keep him

Tomi Juric joins Matthew Ryan and Club Brugge

Australian forward Tomi Juric has joined fellow Aussie Matthew Ryan at Belgium side Club Brugge.

The forward always spoke about wanting to play European football

He started his career in Croatia with his family before moving to Australia to play for Adelaide United. He made no starts at Adelaide and moved to the new club that was at the time the Western Sydney Wanderers. He made himself known there by scoring 12 goals in 24 appearances for the club.

He is the second Australian to sign under the reign of Michel Preud'homme after Matthew Ryan did last season, Michel always spoke of how he thought Australians were very talented and now this could possibly be a potential scouting place for the Belgium side.

Great update and a great story so far, I'm very excited for the future updates!
Great to see you guys back on track after the unfortunate incident that ended your last story. :)
Nice to see a bit of patriotism with your signings Xander, keep it up mate!

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Brugge, Brugge, Brugge!!!!!

Champi0n - Very unfortunate. God Dammit Feliks
