The French footballer, N’Golo Kante has acquired the third-tier Belgian side, Royal Excelsior Virton.

The club affirmed the news of the current owner Flavio Becca selling the club to Kante and also unveiled that the 32-year-old will take control on July 1.

In one of the recent on-field developments of Kante, the former Chelsea midfielder completed his transfer to the Saudi Pro League (SPL) team, Al Ittihad, earlier this month.

The statement said: “Flavio is obviously extremely happy to hand over the keys of the club to N’Golo Kante, a high-class player, not only for his footballing qualities but also and above all for his widely recognised human qualities.

“Driven by his passion for football, N’Golo Kante wants to continue to structure the club in order to consolidate its foundations, stabilise its staff and eventually reconnect with the tradition of training RE Virton’s Youth Academy.

“The club aims to establish its local roots in order to become a driving force of football in Gaume and in the province of Luxembourg.”

In the 2023-24 season, Virton will feature in the third tier of Belgian football after being relegated in the previous season from the second division, Challenger Pro League.
