‘Cash register ringing: Club Brugge has already secured successor Thiago’


Club Brugge has not been able to enjoy Igor Thiago for long, because next summer the goalgetter will move to Brentford for a record amount. And so Blauw-Zwart has to look for a new spearhead again.

A tough job for Vincent Mannaert’s successor, who will then finally call it a day. All the more so because Jan Breydel has featured many strikers in recent years who ultimately did not meet expectations.

Successors of Thiago

Although Ferran Jutglà started well last season, the Spaniard is now back in good form. Unless he also wants to visit other places himself, Jutglà may simply move up in the pecking order at the bottom.

In addition, Romeo Vermant will return from his loan to Westerlo, and there are still a number of promising attackers at Club NXT. Consider, for example, newcomers such as Victor Barbera and Benjamin Faraas.

Talent at Club NXT

However, in the draw against Francs Borains last Friday, it was Kaye Furo who claimed the spotlight. With two assists, the 17-year-old Antwerp native immediately emerged as the standout player on his debut for Nicky Hayen’s troops.

“A dream striker”, was the opinion of the commentators Eleven. At one meter 90, Furo is also somewhat reminiscent of Thiago in terms of profile. Although the chance seems slim that the millions he brings in will remain in his pocket.
