League summary:

Jupiler League 2013/2014 (ongoing): 1 match/0 goals (KAA Gent)



The impact of Belgian football is all around us. Their national team, with quality players such as Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard, Kevin de Bruyne or Romelu Lukaku, is tipped to be the main dark horse of rapidly approaching World Cup 2014 in Brazil. And that’s not all because there is another talented generation (players born in 1995 & 1996) that starts to play regulary and bedazzle experts and fans in Belgian Jupiler League. One of the most interesting is certainly Jinty Caenepeel. This gifted winger started his career at KV Oostende, but moved to Gent at the age of 15. Before the current season, former Gent coach Victor Fernandez gave youngster a chance to train with the first team. Hard work in training has not gone unnoticed and thanks to that Jinty made his debut for “The Buffalos” on 19th October 2013 in a league fixture against Lokeren, replacing Cesar Arzo after 79 minutes of the match. In the past he represented Belgium on U-15 and U-17 levels, now he is part of “Red Devils” U-19 team.



“He is extremely fast and has excellent ball control, but there is still a lot of work ahead of him.”

(Tony Sergeant – youth coach at KAA Gent)
