Saddil Ramdani's transfer to Belgium: What drawbacks await?

Saddil Ramdani has got some invitations from the Belgian clubs, however the Indonesian star should consider carefully before deciding.

After SEA Games 30th, winger Saddil Ramdani of Indonesia U22 was contacted to transfer to play for Pahang FA Club in Malaysia. According to Indotransfer, the 20-year-old refused in order to wait for invitations from European clubs.

According to Indosport, 2 teams at the Belgian national championship: Sint-Truidense VV and Zulte Waregem clubs have expressed their desire to serve the young stars of Indonesia's U22 team.

"Zulte Waregem is one of the potential destinations for Ramdani. They have Sandy Walsh, an Indonesian player and ready to help Saddil integrate into the new environment", wrote Indosport.

At SEA Games 30th, Egy Maulana, a young star who competes in the Polish national championship, played well and was a key player in the Indonesia U22 squad. Witnessing the growth of Egy, the author has the right to expect Saddil's future if this player can go to Europe to play.

"The Belgian Championship has many quality stars like Kevin Mirallas, Simon Mignolet and Steven Defour. If playing football in Belgium, this will be a good opportunity for Saddil to develop his career, thereby contributing more to Indonesian football", the author shared.

However, he did not forget to warn the young 20-year-old about the difficulties in Europe, and the cases of Firza Andika and Cong Phuong are typical examples.

"In January 2019, Firza Andika signed with AFC Tubize in the Belgian Second Division, but quickly had to leave after only 7 months", Indosport cited.

"The Belgian Championship has many quality stars. If Saddil comes here, his playing time will be very limited, even for the reserve team as the case of Nguyen Cong Phuong", pen Peter Wijanako warned.

Saddil Ramdanis transfer to Belgium: What drawbacks await?

Four months in Belgium, Nguyen Cong Phuong played only 20 minutes for the first team of STVV. It was in a 0-6 defeat to Club Brugge in the second round of the Belgian National Championship. Not being used, this striker will leave the team to return to Vietnam to play for the Ho Chi Minh City club in the upcoming time.

In addition to Cong Phuong, another Asian star, Lee Seung-woo, is also disgraced in Belgium. Therefore, Saddil must definitely consider carefully if he wants to join STVV.
