Fabio Silva has stormed into the Jupiler Pro League through the big gate. The Portuguese striker turned out to be an absolute trendsetter at Anderlecht during the start of the season. Will he make the difference again tonight against KAA Gent? Mentally it is already good, he told Sportweekend: “I feel 100% confidence here.”

Fabio Silva effortlessly sings along to the ancient classic “Anderlecht Champion”. And to make the slogan a reality, they also look at the Portuguese at the purple and white.

Silva impressed in his first weeks with the record champion by scoring five goals and delivering two assists. “I feel free here and I have confidence,” the striker explains his blood form. “I need that right now.”

It has ever been different. At his mother club Wolves – Anderlecht hires Silva – the top talent barely got off the couch. “When people look at my stats, they think I’ve played 26 games in the Premier League. But that’s not the case, hey. Sometimes I only played for 3 minutes. Here I get more chances and things happen.”

I am happy to be able to play football again and enjoy matches.

“The last two years have not been easy,” Silva looks back. “I’m happy that I can play football again and enjoy matches. (laughs) Even away games by bus and hotels I find fun now.”

During the difficult moments, the Portuguese found support in his faith. A large image of Jesus is tattooed on Silva’s left arm.

“That way I always see what is important to me,” said the striker.

Who knows, maybe a trophy will be added in the future?
