Biography

As a child Frédéric played for Olympia Wespelaar before starting his career at Belgian outfit Lierse SK, joining at the age of five. He progressed through the youth ranks and into the first team, making his debut in January 2007. Representing Belgium at various youth levels, he was a member of the Lierse team that won promotion and the Second Division title in 2010, and went on to make over 100 appearances, captaining the side more than 75 times.

At the age of 25, he decided to move abroad, signing a short term deal with Partick Thistle in October 2014. His contract with the Glasgow side was soon extended, and he became a regular during his two years at Firhill, before returning to Lierse in 2016. When Lierse went bankrupt at the end of the 2017-18 season, Frédéric returned to Scotland once more to sign a two year deal with United in June 2018.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Frédéric was born on this date in Wespelaar, Belgium.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    As a child Frédéric played for Olympia Wespelaar before starting his career at Belgian outfit Lierse SK, joining at the age of five. He progressed through the youth ranks and into the first team, making his debut in January 2007. Representing Belgium at various youth levels, he was a member of the Lierse team that won promotion and the Second Division title in 2010, and went on to make over 100 appearances, captaining the side more than 75 times.

  • United commenced their 2018/19 campaign with a penalty shoot-out defeat against Arbroath in the Betfred Cup after a rather lacklustre 1-1 draw. The turnover in players since last season was illustrated by the six debutants in the starting line-up, with new signings Ben Siegrist, Frederick Frans, Sam Wardrop, Fraser Aird, Christoph Rabitisch and Nicky Clark all making their first United appearances. In addition, young midfielder Declan Glass was handed his first start for the club.

  • United’s elimination from this year’s Betfred Cup was confirmed after a penalty defeat to Alloa Athletic at Tannadice. The match was depressingly similar to the preceding week’s penalty defeat against Arbroath, with United taking the lead, being pegged back by a late penalty, before losing in a penalty shoot-out.

  • Last Appearance - QOS 1 - 2 Dundee United

    United gained their first league win of the season at the second attempt with a badly needed victory in Dumfries against Queen of the South after a dominant first half performance. The Doonhamers got back into the game in the second half but United did enough to see the game out and gain a vital three points.
