Only little pointed at that time on the fact that vest should become once an international Topstar. After it had not created it in three years Prague to succeed it changed to Belgium to the sports club Lokeren. Here it developed itself further and became in the season 1998/99 with 24 hits goal scorer king of the first Belgian league. Vest large strengths lie due to its size of 202 cm and its wuchtigen body in the head ball play and ball shielding.
