Jérémy Doku is an old acquaintance on the nomination list of the Golden Boy and despite a season with a lot of injuries and few striking performances, the Rennes winger got a place on the list again.
The two other Belgians in foreign employment are Aster Vranckx, who has secured a permanent place in midfield at Wolfsburg, and Eliot Matazo, who is trying to take steps under the wing of Philippe Clement at Monaco.
The 3 players from the Belgian league are neatly divided between Anderlecht, Club Brugge and Racing Genk. At Anderlecht it was not Yari Verschaeren that caught the eye of the people of Tuttosport, but Anouar Ait El Hadj.
At Genk, goalkeeper Maarten Vandevoordt could count on a nomination. His sandwich is already baked, because he signed a contract with RB Leipzig, where he will not go until the summer of 2024.
The most surprising Belgian name on the long list is probably Cisse Sandra. The 18-year-old attacking midfielder particularly impressed in the Youth League, although he also got more and more playing opportunities under Schreuder in the second part of the season.
