This means the average man needs to work for at least 6.5 years to earn the same as De Kleine Generaal earns in only 1 month.
The salary of the Belgian midfielder compared to his Burnley teammates
His net worth is on the rise since he signed for Burnley. Everybody knows how much money is being spent on salaries in the Premier League and he is making a good amount of money per year. As a result his net worth is now roughly 15 Million Euro (13 Million Pound) . His market value is declining, he is nearing the end of his career and he will not be that costly to pick up for potentially interested clubs. His current market value is about 5 Million Euro (4.2 Million Pound).
He has a lot of tattoos, here is showing some of them off while wearing a Belgian Red Devils shirt. This was right before the world cup in 2018, a tournament he didnt participate in, unfortunately.
Family - Get to know them
He calls her 'his pride'. It is his daughter that he has together with Ornella. The couple and the kid are so happy together. Family time is all he wants these days.
Defour Car - What does he drive?
Is this really him? You bet! Here he was still a very young ladsy, but he already drove a great Audi. We are pretty sure his car collection has only gotten better over time though.
House - Where does he live?
His vacation home in Croatia is absolutely stunning. Here you see him enjoying a great glass of wine while checking his phone. Isn't life just great sometimes?
Hi there WTFoot fan and or follower. We are so very happy to have you here at the Wiki of one of Belgium's most interesting players. De Kleine Generaal (the little General) was born in 1988 but he is still going strong. After having played in several countries across Europe he is currently playing for Burnley in the English Premier League. He started his career in Belgium, first at his hometown team Mechelen, in the Youth Academy, and later on in Genk; there he made his professional debut in 2004. He played a whole bunch of years for Standard Liege after that, before joining FC Porto in 2011. After several successful seasons in Portugal he went back to his homecountry to play for the traditional Belgian giants Anderlecht. Burnley became interested in his services though and they attracted him in 2016, right after they had promoted to the Premier League. At Burnley he has helped the club remain in the Premier League and he played an important role, especially for the younger players. The Little General can be considered a true warrior on the pitch. He also played a lot of games for the Belgian national team, the Belgian Red Devils. He retired in 2018 having played 52 games for the national team, having scored 2 goals for the Belgians.
