Standard de LIège, Ryan and Samy have reached an agreement : our 2 young Belgian talented players have signed a new contract for 3 years (with an option for an extra season).
The young defender born on the the 8th of September in 1996 (18 years old) and the young forward born on the 1st of April in 1997 (18 years old) have rejoined our Youth Academy in 2013 coming from KAA Gent. Now they have decided to give confidence to Standard de Liège for the rest of their professional career.
Axel LAWAREE : "We really wanted to keep Samy and Ryan because we believe a lot in them. They're young, Belgian and they have a big progression margin. They were in Austria during the summer preparation and if everything goes like we planified, they will be serious competitors for the players of the first team very soon. They belong to the new working philosophy, in which we would like to give a real chance to our best young players so that they can develop themselves. Their challenge is to take the last step and to show that they're ready to play little by little. In that way, they'll follow the old legends of our club !"
Our club wants to congratulate Samy and Ryan MMAEE for this new contract and wishes them all the best at our club.
