Isaac Tshibangu: Anderlecht sign TP Mazembe wing

The five-time African champion has announced that the 18-year-old forward has joined the Belgian elite division

Anderlecht drew Congolese international Isaac Tshibangu from TP Mazembe out of Linafoot.

The 18-year-old gets a three-year contract through Belgian first division A, with the option for a further year.

Through this development, the wing will continue his professional career under Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany at Lotto Park until 2024.

“TP Mazembe confirms the total agreement reached with RSC Anderlecht for the transfer of Isaac Tshibangu,” a read statement from Congolese website.

“The Congolese international wing has signed a three-year contract with another year as an option with the Belgian.

“He arrived at the Crows as a young player with great potential, but still unknown at the time, in Ligue 1.”

The player and his father were presented by club chairman Moses Katumbi on Monday night.

In his remarks, TP Mazembe boss stated that the Belgian player is a goal scorer to reckon with while wishing him all the best in his career.

“I wish him all the best when he opens a new page in his football career,” Katumbi said.

‘Tshibangu is a humble, formidable and impeccable goal scorer to count on. May the Lord bless him as he takes TP Mazembe to higher heights. ”

Although he is a left winger, the teenager can play in any other position in the attack. In the 2019-2020 campaign, he scored eight goals and four assists in 22 games.

In the recent season, he only finds the net once in 23 league outings, as Dragan Cvetkovic’s men finish second behind league winners AS Vita Club, after scoring 66 points from 30 games.

Tshibangu is expected to join the rest of the press and white group in Brussels no later than July 1.

He becomes the sixth player in Kompany’s group after Ghana’s trio Majeed Ashimeru, Dauda Mohammed, Francis Amuzu plus Anouar Ait El Hadj (Morocco) and Albert Sambi Lokonga (Congo).

Even if it is equal, he can make his debut when the 34-time Belgian champion tackles the Greek team OFI Crete, in a pre-season friendship hosted on 15 June.

On the international scene, Tshibangu made his debut in the Congo on 18 September 2019 in a 3-2 friendly defeat against Rwanda.
