Zinho Vanheusden’s agent Gunter Thiebaut has revealed that his client would have never left Inter had he not picked up a serious injury.

Whilst in Inter’s youth ranks the highly rated Belgian youth national team player injured his cruciate ligament whilst representing the club in the UEFA Youth League against Dynamo Kyiv back in September 2017.

Vanheusden was sidelined for four months as a result and upon his return he signed a new long term deal with the club before being loaned out to Standard Liege.

At the end of the 2017/18 season his loan was extended by a further season and this past Summer the Belgian Pro League side turned his stay with the club into a permanent one for a club record fee of €12.5 million.

Multiple reports have stated that Inter have a buy back option on the 20-year-old central defender and that he could be brought back to the club this coming Summer.

“Zinho was considered one of the most promising defenders and without the cruciate ligament injury he would never have returned to Belgium, because the plan was to give him a chance in the Inter first team as soon as possible,” he told Belgian news outlet VoetbalNiuews.
