Walter Baseggio still closely follows his Sporting Anderlecht and football in general.

Sports and youth alderman for the city of Tubize since 2018, Walter Baseggio (42) has enough experience to give advice to young footballers. “That they make sure to surround themselves well. When I see that Sambi Lokonga already wins three times more today than during my best period in Anderlecht, I hope that all these young people will manage it better than me”, explained the 42-year-old former player with Sudpresse.

“The pension insurance, imposed by the Pro League and which you collect at 35, fortunately got me back on track. I was too nice and too much I-didn’t care. Too often, I I was happy with my game with a goal or a nice assist. I could undoubtedly have had a better career but I do not harbor resentment, jealousy or remorse. I know that it is also this character “playing” which got me through all the hardships as a footballer and as a man. This positive mentality saved me. I, the shy guy, was not made to be famous. I neither consider myself nor like a former star, nor as an icon. The real icons are the Van Himst, Rensenbrink and Coeck. I would not want to change for the world, “concluded Bassegio.
