INTERVIEWS Sieben Dewaele was twice in the starting eleven in this preparation, against Benfica and Hamburg. Dewaele admits that he thought about a departure at RSC Anderlecht, but the arrival of Kompany has changed everything.
Dewaele was captain of the U21 last season and it looked like he was going to start at the U21 again this season and Dewaele didn't want that anymore.
"I am twenty years old and I would start my third season at the U21 in Anderlecht. So the thought of leaving came to mind, I wanted to play games at the highest level. There were also first division team who followed me such as Kortrijk. But then Kompany was there. For him, everyone starts from scratch and he also wanted to see everyone at work. I got my chance and I grabbed it and gave everything. I still have a lot to prove but I am very happy. "
