PREMIER - Arsenal pitcher Sambi Lokonga tells about his Anderlecht first-team debut

Published on: 21 October 2021

Ahead of turning 22, on his tomorrow-dated birthday, Arsenal and Belgian national team midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga unveiled some of his truths to Gunners official media:

"To be honest, when I was a kid, I liked always to watch the individual players, rather than a specific team. My family didn't support anyone in particular.  But I was only 10 when I joined Anderlecht, so I grew up there and we used to go to the stadium all the time to watch the first team with the rest of the youth players - we would go a few times a month with the youth team. Then, when I was 18, I got to play there for the first time, in a full stadium. All my family was there – I bought them all tickets and everyone came to support me! I had my parents, friends, cousins, aunties. A lot a lot of people!

It was three years ago, but I remember how excited I was. Honestly, I’m not someone who gets nervous so I was more excited than anything, and I just couldn’t wait to play, to start a game. In fact, I couldn’t sleep the night before, because I wanted to play in a big game, and that’s just the way I am.

Back when I was a kid fan, I remember one against Standard Liege. They were always a big rival for Anderlecht, and this was a really, really good game. I think I was about 12 at the time, but the thing I remember about it most was the atmosphere. Anderlecht was always a difficult place to play for any team to come to. For a few years we used to beat every team at home, and everyone was afraid to go and play there. So the supporters were always really important for us".
