September 24, 2017. A few days after having given two touchdown passes in the Belgian Cup during a successful Lokeren 2-0 in the face Beerschot-Wilrijk, Amine Benchaib continues his professional debut dream by scoring a marvellous goal to Sclessin. A great joy for all of his clan as the one who was then only 19 years of age was quickly tempered as the goal “was not reported to the team,” he said at the time. Beaten 2-1, Lokeren had brought to light a talent which had joined the club at 14 years old from Ghent.

Now carolo, Amine Benchaib recalled on Tuesday in front of the press that he had kept his feet on the ground in spite of the first non-professional, which he probably would not have dared to dream. “My father is very important to me. He was a football player professional (editor’s NOTE, in D2 moroccan before playing in the reserve side of Ghent and Roeselare) and he advises me and guides me a lot. After my debut, he told me that the best was to come for me, but that there was no reason to hover after these beginnings there. “
