Bateau comfortable in Belgium.

Bateau comfortable in Belgium.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFA).


T&T defender Sheldon Bateau is enjoying every bit of his time with KV Mechelen in the Belgium Premier Division.

The former national Under-20 captain was among the list of overseas-based players who appeared for T&T in the just concluded Caribbean Cup Finals. He performed creditably in defence for Stephen Harts team, appearing in the three matches at the Ato Boldon Stadium,

I felt good about my performances and the performance of the entire team during this tournament. It showed that something good is happening and we need to continue building on this, Bateau said.

At the moment Im enjoying my career in Belgium. The club KV Mechelen is doing well and Im happy to be a part of them. Ive scored two goals this season and generally Im very comfortable and enjoying my role over there.

Bateau said he would welcome the addition of more T&T players to Belgium following reports that U-20 players Levi Garcia and others were set to join the League there.

Id encourage the players to come over. I saw them at the airport heading over there when I arrived and I hope they can settle in well and continue to develop their game over there. Its a good place to come over to as a young player.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Sheldon Bateau grounded by visa problems. Has not returned to Belgium since the Second Round of the Caribbean Cup ended on October 12th. Mechelens management quite upset.

ah little google translation from dutch to english

Sheldon Bateau, the 23 year old defender who was a fixture at KV Mechelen, is now 3.5 weeks stuck in his native Trinidad & Tobago by visa problems.

Bateau After a match could not return to Belgium because of visa problems. Moreover, the nearest Belgian Embassy in Jamaica, 1,000 miles away from where he currently resides. Malinwa responded yesterday for the first time.

"Soon there again matches," said coach Aleksandar Jankovic. "Bateau may have to stay there, because this is incomprehensible. He's a pro? Yes, Sheldon sometimes, but he will call me in what condition his future? He has a training program, but it is exactly as if he takes a second summer. We will have to check how much he has recovered. Bateau should not expect that he will immediately get a new chance. A fine? That should determine the club. "

little respect

Here and there is even talk of a resignation, but that qualifies assistant athletic director Olivier Renard. "He will not fly out, but we will be dotting the i's (ie a fine). It is incomprehensible that Bateau is left anyway even though he knew that his visa was not in order. That shows little respect for us. We hope it's a matter of days before he's back and then we want to hear his version of the facts. This is too ridiculous for words.

Men just need something to complain about.  To me he's speaking haltingly because he's trying to speak to a non-English speaker and at times is trying to speak Flemish in-between, so it seems he's processing his words more than usual before speaking.  I found myself doing the same when speaking to native Spanish speakers in spain, alternating between halting English and Spanish.
