I'm a player that gives always 100% and I plan to do that here as well. I'm a hard worker on the pitch, with a good pass and good heading ability. I want to quickly ensure that I'm worth a starting place in the team, and so can help Lierse to a good season. I know that Lierse is a nice peoples club with loyal supporters. That also attracted me.
