The Premier League has been able to watch two talented Belgian goalkeepers as of late: Chelsea’s Thibaut Courtois and Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet.
However, both Belgium internationals are fellow countryman of possibly the most crazy goalkeeper on the planet. Glenn Verbauwhede used to play in the Belgium top flight with Club Brugge, Kortrijk and Westerlo.
The 30-year-old moved to South-Africa in the summer of 2013 and has played for Sundowns, FS Stars, and currently Maritzburg United, who are ranked last in the ABSA Premiership.
Now, the Belgian, who has been capped 62 times for Belgium’s youth national teams, has been heavily criticised for his antics on the field.
In a league match against Golden Arrows, who are sitting in 11th place after 23 matches, Verbauwhede repeatedly flinged himself at his rivals, one time even complaining heavily after allegedly being kicked by one, which was ruled untrue by the replay.
No one really knows why the 30-year-old is putting on such a comedy show on the pitch, and he doesn’t seem to stop doing it anytime soon…
