Nacer Chadli | Early Life & Family
Nacer was born on 2 August 1989 to his parents, Ramdam Chadli and Fatima Chelski. He was born in Liege, Belgium.
As for his siblings, Nacer has two elder brothers, namely, Jamal Chadli and Amine Chadli. Besides, the Belgian international has an unnamed sister.
We scoured the whole internet but couldn’t find her name. But, we will update it as soon as the information is made available.
Moreover, when Chadli was still a child, his father decided to emigrate to Belgium from Morocco, searching for a quality life.
During that time, most young kids were involved in football. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that young Chadli fell in love with football at a very young age.
The Belgian international started his football training with hometown club JS Their-a-liege. After impressing his coaches and scouts alike, Chadli moved to the youth academy of Standard Liege to continue his development.
Subsequently, having spent some time at the Liege academy, Nacer moved on to AGOVVV Apeldom, where the future Belgium international would start his professional career.
Nacer Chadli | Career & Stats
Unlike most other top footballers, Chadli’s professional career started with Dutch second division side AGOVV Apeldoorn.
Having impressed many scouts, Nacer’s manager, Ted Van Leeuwen, feared that top division clubs would take the Belgian international away from their hands.
On the contrary, the attacking midfielder stayed with the club for three years until Dutch top division side FC Twente swooped in and signed the young prodigy.
By the time he finished his three years with the second division team, Chadli had played in a total of 93 games scoring 29 goals.
Considering the clubs scouting Chadli, FC Twente considered themselves lucky to acquire the services of Nacer.
