Ilias El Hari has signed his first professional contract. The 18-year-old flank attacker has been playing for six months at KVC Westerlo. Just this summer, he got on a plane to Moldova for a European Championship trip with the National Futsal Team U19. He seemed born for Futsal, but has chosen the field.
During the World Cup break, Ilias was allowed to join the first-team training camp for the first time. He also trained with the first team several times after the training camp. From now on Ilias will be seen even more on the training fields. He will train three or four days a week with the first team and the rest of the week he will join the U21. With this gradual transition we want to ensure that Ilias can develop optimally.
