Vertonghen sees four young defenders for the Red Devils

National coach Roberto Martinez no longer has an international class defense. That is obvious. The national coach saw three experienced defenders transfer to the Jupiler Pro League.

Toby Alderweireld went to Royal Antwerp FC, Dedryck Boyata to Club Brugge and Jan Vertonghen to RSC Anderlecht. They will probably play a lot there, which is good for the Belgian national team, but it is clear that we no longer have a defense like we did at the 2018 World Cup. There is still a big gap behind the experienced pawns. Arthur Theate is knocking firmly on the door, but other young defenders still have many steps to take. Vertonghen mentioned four young players, including Theate, as potential base players for the future on Mauve TV.


“Theate is already there and that is a very good thing. Hannes (Delcroix, ed.) is there, I hope Zinho (Vanheusden, ed.) will come through. Zeno (Debast, ed.) you also have Vertonghen said.

Theate is a basic pawn at Stade Rennes and Delcroix and Debast are at Anderlecht. There is a chance that Vertonghen Delcroix – who has had a difficult start to the season – will play out of the team. Debast is by far the best defender of the start of the season at RSCA. Vanheusden has been playing for AZ since this season, but he has still not played there. The ex-player of Standard and Inter has been struggling with physical problems for years, as a result of which he played far too little. He urgently needs to become top fit so that he can continue to develop as a defender.
