Another player of the 2007 generation just turned professional. Chike Van de Ven Macayle has signed his first contract with Sporting. His contract runs until June 2023.
After playing for the youth teams of KVC Westerlo and KRC Genk, Chike joined the RSCA Belfius Academy in 2019. He immediately established himself as a skillful forward. This season, he is playing with Stéphane Stassin's U16 team.
Jean Kindermans, director of the RSCA Belfius Academy: "We are delighted that this young striker signed his first pro contract. He arrived from KRC Genk in 2019 with his younger brother Terry, and he has proven that he has all the speed, power and technique required to score goals. He's playing this season with RSCA's U16s, who have made a good start to their league campaign."
