Qatar gave us a new perspective.

His relaxed attitude

“If I’m really relaxed going into the tournament, it’s for a number of reasons. The Qatar experience gave us a new vision, another perspective. My age also plays a role. And other players are in the same situation. We are more adult, more altruistic. Over the years, you realize how lucky you are to be here. Your priority is no longer to play well for yourself, but only to help the team and set an example.”

“The qualities to do something great”, “Satisfied only if we are in the final”: the Red Devils are ambitious

Games and matches

“We have good cohesion in the group. Whether in Tubize or here in Germany, we spend a lot of time as a team. We play cards, board games, PlayStation or ping-pong. We also plan to watch a lot of matches together. Not to analyze possible future opponents – the staff is more competent for that – but for pleasure, to be together. Group cohesion is, in my opinion, a very important factor in going far in a tournament. I also sense a big hunger among the players. For some, it’s the first major tournament. For others, it will be the last. In both cases, it offers additional motivation and the desire to give your all to go as far as possible.”

The Card Players WhatsApp Group

“There is always a WhatsApp group for the team card players. The tradition continues over the years. Who is part of it? (he thinks). Jan (Vertonghen) is the captain of this group. There is also Charles (From Ketelaere)Leandro (Trossard),Kevin (De Bruyne)Maxim (De Cuyper) who joined us, and me. Hans (Vanaken) isn’t there, because he was usually the lucky one at cards. Now it’s clearly Jan. But I’m slowly getting closer to his level.”

Osmosis with young people

“I’m one of the oldest on the team, but it’s not like I’m with 14-year-olds. We don’t live in very different worlds, the youngest and I. Even Jan Vertonghen, who is still a few years older, laughs with the kids in the group. Meunier said he still had 12 years in his head and I understand that well. The head conditions the body.”
