OTHER It took a long time, but finally there is white smoke: Mario Stroeykens has extended his contract with Anderlecht. The 17-year old striker, who was still tied up until the end of next season, extended his contract with one year. He is now fixed until mid 2024.
"I am proud of my trajectory: I started this adventure at the age of 8 and this club has given me a lot since then. I want to give something back to the fans by proving my worth in the first team. I'm ready for the next level," he told RSCA.be.
"Just like for a number of other youngsters, the coming season will be important for Mario's development," adds CEO Peter Verbeke. "Despite his young age, Mario is physically and technically ready to compete in the first team. He will get the opportunities to play himself into the spotlight, but of course we will give him the necessary time."
