"Christian is a young striker who already has a lot of experience", our Director of Sports Peter Verbeke states. "He combines power with speed: qualities we wanted to add to our squad. His arrival should enable us to add to our scoring capabilities. Just like Joshua Zirkzee, Christian chose RSCA as an important step in his further development. That element has also been important in our choice for Christian."
“I’m really excited to play for RSC Anderlecht this season”, Christian Kouamé says upon his arrival at Neerpede. “The style of play that the coach desires should suit me. I’m obviously joining a strong squad and I hope I can meet the fans in the stadium soon.”
