Mats Rits, the footballer who (almost) never gets hurt

Mats Rits is the only Bruges resident to have played on the pitch with his trainer.

This Friday, Mats Rits will return to Mechelen, a club where he played for five years (2013-2018), with more than 150 games on the clock. An obviously special moment, especially since the KaVé relaunched it, after his adventure at Ajax Amsterdam (2011-2013).

Since this Dutch episode, the midfielder has been spared. He has never withdrawn for physical problems in the past eight seasons. “Is that true?
