Mats Rits signed his first professional contract at Germinal Beerschot. The Antwerp native made the switch to Ajax after two seasons. Due to injuries, he did not experience a breakthrough in the first team in Amsterdam. After his move to KV Mechelen in 2013, Mats immediately emergd as a stronghold in midfield. After more than five seasons at KV Mechelen, he made the switch to Club Brugge in 2018.
CEO Sports Jesper Fredberg:
“Mats Rits is a valuable player that knows the league, has a lot of experience and bring leadership to the squad. Apart from being a dynamic central midfielder, he has a good personality and is a good communicator.”
"I am signing here today with a very good feeling and with a lot of desire to contribute something to the team. It was an easy choice for me and the right moment to opt for this project. I immediately felt a lot of confidence from my talks with the management of RSC Anderlecht and I strongly believe in the clear vision of the club management."
