Louis Torres and Lucas Larade definitively join Cercle Brugge!
Both Torres and Larade have been training with Cercle's first team since the start of preseason. Louis Torres is a left back who has spent his entire career for AS Monaco and has now joined the Groen-Zwart. “I am happy to be here. Cercle is a big step forward for me. As a young player, my goal is to play as much as possible and help the team move forward. Physically, I improved a lot during the preseason. It was an intense week, but I am now fully ready for the start of competition.”
Lucas Larade, meanwhile, is a central defender who joined Monaco in 2021. Before that he had been playing with Créteil. “If you look at my career to date, it makes me very proud to be able to take this step. The hard work is rewarded. I am very happy to be here and to have this opportunity. I can't wait to show the coach and the supporters what I can do. The success stories of Boris Popovic and Edgaras Utkus inspire me enormously. They stood in our shoes last season and have moved forward. My objective is to do as well as possible and to go the extra mile.”
