Official: 31-year-old former Charleroi, Club Brugge and Union Saint-Gilloise player relaunches career in D1B

Pietro Perdichizzi and Westerlo have agreed to terminate their contract by mutual consent. The defender did not take long to find a new club.

After four seasons at Westerlo, Pietro Perdichizzi will return to D1B, a league he knows well having played 163 matches there. The 31-year-old defender has signed for Lierse until 2027.

He is best remembered for his time at Roeselare, Antwerp and Union Saint-Gilloise (over 100 appearances for Union before the club’s return to the top flight).

He was also one of the architects of Westerlo’s return to the top flight but played very little this season. He will now put his experience at the service of Lierse, who finished eleventh in D1B this season.

Perdichizzi continues his Belgian odyssey

Born in Charleroi, Pietro Perdichizzi began his professional career at Mons on a January evening in 2010. For the record, it was against Racing Genk, with Franky Vercauteren bringing the young Kevin De Bruyne on for the last quarter of an hour for the visitors.

Perdichizzi then moved on to Club Brugge and Zulte Waregem, where he did not play.
