The defender was ‘dump tackled’ by Bills cornerback Ron Brooks (all in good spirits!) at a Play 60 Community Event for local schoolchildren.

Now the Belgian international is taking tips from one of the game’s greats, Osi Umenyiora, formerly of the New York Giants, on how he can avoid the big hits in future.

The pair met as part of a BBC feature as the Club continues to work closely with the NFL ahead of two regular season games being played at our new stadium from 2018.
