Anderlecht set to honour former player Nii Odartey Lamptey

​Former Anderlecht midfielder Nii Odartey Lamptey has expressed his excitement upon finding out that his former club are set to honour him on November 22 after he spent five years with the Belgium side.

Lamptey plied his trade for Anderlecht between 1990 and 1995 where he put on some impressive performances and became a prominent feature in the team.

In a letter addressed to Nii Odartey Lamptey and signed by the Public Affairs Officer of RSC Anderlecht, David Steegen said: “We are extremely honoured to invite you to Anderlecht to attend a league game against KV Kortrijk on November 22”.

“I am extremely happy for the invitation and their decision to honour me, this shows that the few years I spent with them have been recognised and I am grateful to them for that.

“I was a young player who played in their team and made exploits by winning trophies with them.” Odartey Lamptey told an Accra based radio station, Peace FM.

“They have written a book about me, my experience with the team and what I went through before joining them and my exploits while I was playing with them.

“They have spent about a month in Ghana researching about me. We are launching the book at Amsterdam, Holland and Belgium,” he concluded.
