Fulltime football man. Belgian Red Devils’ and Red Flames’ media manager and press officer. Previously sports journalist at Play Sports (Telenet), VTM and BRT radio (now VRT). When I’m not working you can find me groundhopping, travelling as a football tourist, reading, writing and speaking. But first and foremost enjoying football. Not only the game as it happens on the field of play, but also far beyond the four lines.
