The 17-year-old Lapage has been playing for Anderlecht since the age of seven and this season played for the U18 and U21. “Amando is originally a midfielder, but was transformed into a defender,” said Jean Kindermans, head of the RSCA Belfius Academy. “He is strong in the air, anticipates well and has a good pass in the feet,” Kindermans added.

Lapage will compete in the defense of the first team with Wesley Hoedt and Lisandro Magallán.
