The SA Youngster Lighting Up Belgium

Percy Tau may have been the biggest South African name to make the switch to Belgium this season, however there’s another youngster from Mzansi who’s currently stealing the headlines with his form.

Kurt Abrahams, who completed a loan move to Westerlo from Saint-Truidense last month, has scored two goals in two games for his new side since dropping into the Belgian First Division, most recently grabbing the winner as they beat AFC Tubize 2-1.

The 21-year-old’s start to life with Westerlo has seen him draw high praise from his head coach, Bob Peeters, who mused that he can do ‘things that many other footballers cannot’.



According to voetbalkrant.com, Peeters said, "We were already busy with Abrahams in June, and I wanted to bring him to Westerlo anyway… He brings something in the team that we did not have last season, it is clear that he can do things that many other footballers cannot do."

Abrahams’ side is currently top of the table with three wins from their opening five games, and the youngster will be eager to try and keep up his form as they target promotion back into the top-flight. He has five senior goals in 13 games since making his professional debut in Belgium last year. 

Meanwhile, Tau’s Union Saint-Gilloise are second bottom of the table with only one win so far this campaign, and the Bafana Bafana international missed their most recent game due to his international commitments as South Africa drew 0-0 with Libya.
