Aaron Leya Iseka is another pearl out of Anderlecht youth team. It’s worthy of note that his brother is Michy Batshuayi – a brilliang Standard Liege striker, currently the top goalscorer in Jupiler Pro League. 2013 for Aaron was a great year. He won the Belgian championship at U-17 level and scored the most goals in a very prestigious AEGON Future Cup, where young “Les Mauves” also won the top prize. In 2014, he played in UEFA Youth League, where he has already scored 4 goals in 6 matches, and then later went to Italy for Viareggio cup, where he also scored 4 goals in 6 matches, and RSCA lost in the final against AC Milan.
“At the age of ten Aaron outclassed everyone and everything; he has a very strong character, which can be heard in a group . For years he has been the driving force of each locker room.”
(Mohamed Ouahbi – Leya Iseka’s former coach)
