At the beginning of this season, Jérémie Makiese signed a contract with Virton, in 1st division B. He would get a place under the bar with the promises, only he didn’t have much time to focus on his football career in recent months.
After all, 20-year-old Makiese is also the Belgian representative for the Eurovision Song Contest. Last Thursday he qualified with “Miss You” for tonight’s final.
His fellow goalkeepers, with captain Anthony Sadin as mouthpiece, give him an extra boost in a video.
Makiese could become Virton’s most successful player this season tonight, because after an inglorious year in 1B, the club threatened to drop to the amateur series. Only thanks to the bankruptcy of Mouscron, Virton can remain in 1B.
