Anderlecht: “Vertonghen has made his decision”

Following Belgium’s elimination in the Euro round of 16 by France, Jan Vertonghen quickly announced his retirement from international football.

The question on everyone’s lips now is whether he will play another season with Anderlecht. This is the desire of the club and the supporters, and the majority of observers believe that he still has one season left in his legs.

Another season

A few months ago, the player had stated that he did not want to be a burden to Anderlecht, or in other words, that he would not take the risk of playing one too many seasons before bowing out.

And while he is currently on vacation, the player is letting his entourage negotiate with Sporting. Because according to Le Soir, his desire is to sign on for another season with the Brussels club.

Vertonghen should thus be able to continue to guide the young players who are evolving in the squad and bring his experience to a defense that will inevitably have to be reshuffled since Debast and Gattoni have left.

While nothing is yet official, the next few days could allow Anderlecht to make the good news official. With fewer international commitments, Vertonghen will be able to more easily string together matches with Sporting, which is set to return to the European stage.
