Today Beerschot extended Dante Rigo's contract that will keep the young Belgian midfielder at the club. He joined Beerschot from PSV Eindhoven in January 2022 and will now also feature in the 2022-2023 season in which our club will try to bounce back immediately to Division 1A.

Rigo only played 6 games since January but nevertheless feels at home. "I have moved to the Antwerpen Zuid-district and settled well both in the city centre and at the club", the 24 year old says.  "I missed my start because of a rib injury but then claimed my spot in the starting XI with decent displays against KVK Kortrijk and Sint-Truiden."

"Relegation to Divison 1B is a big blow but we aim to regain our place in the top flight as soon as possible.  I have quite a bit of experience in the second division as I played with "Jong PSV" in the Netherlands. Football is a bit more physical on that level but that doesn't scare me. I am ready for the new challenge."
