TRANSFERS Het Laatste Nieuws today tells seven striking facts about Francis Amuzu, Anderlecht's number seven. One of them is about how he ended up at Anderlecht. He was close to a move to PSV or Club Brugge.

As a 14-year-old, Amuzu tested at Anderlecht for the first time. The purple and white team was immediately convinced. But Club Brugge and PSV also showed far-reaching interest. For Club Brugge, Peter Verbeke, current CEO of Anderlecht, conducted the talks with the Amuzu family at the time.

The other facts are about:

-Amuzu's barefoot training at the JMG Academy;
-Ghana's interest in having Amuzu selected for their national team;
-his hat-trick, something guys like Lukaku, Tielemans and Praet failed to do in the Anderlecht shirt;
-his father Theopilus who was a professional football player at Standard and KV Mechelen;
-his enormous speed;
-his girlfriend who has a beauty shop in Antwerp.
