This Wednesday, June 16, Yari Verschaeren signed for an extended stay at RSC Anderlecht until 2024. The attacking midfielder remains loyal to his formation club after eleven years.
Yari made his debut on November 25, 2018 in the away match against Sint-Truiden. In the 67 professional matches which followed, he won the hearts of the Purple & White fans and became a fan favourite in the Lotto Park. Last season, too, he made himself important for Sporting in the last ten league games after an ankle injury. With four goals and two assists, he managed to qualify the team for European football. Yari also made his mark with the national team. The Kid has now collected 6 caps, in which he scored one goal for the Red Devils.
Yari Verschaeren: “I am very happy that I can officially extend my contract with the club of my heart. I feel at home at Sporting, and I also owe a lot to the club. It is therefore a logical decision for me to play in mauve and white until 2024.”
Peter Verbeke, Sports Director: “Yari has gone through difficult periods due to a number of unfortunate injuries. That will also have made him stronger. Now we want to take a new step in his development together. His potential is great and he can play a key role for us next season.”
