The midfielder started his career at Anderlecht and signed a professional contract in 2013 after 11 years as a youth player. From there, he played 185 games for the club over the next four years, scoring 35 goals and creating 31 assists.
Tielemans is fondly remembered by Anderlecht supporters who helped the club win two league titles, and it was while he was based on the club’s Lotto Park grounds where he became the first ever player to play in 10 before his 18th birthday. Champions League matches played.
After two years at Monaco, he moved to Leicester, where he had become a fan favorite even before his Wembley exploits against Chelsea.
So far, he has scored 17 goals and 19 assists from 108 games at King Power Stadium.
Alongside an Anderlecht and Leicester star, the 24-year-old hopes to become a Belgian national hero this summer as he tries to lead the national team to glory at Euro 2020.
