Although Sven made his international debut in 1995, he wasn't selected for Belgium again for four years and has only recently become a more permanent fixture for the Red Devils. Very much a confidence player, he is an attacking midfielder who moved from Mechelen to Club Brugge in 1993. Turning down the reported overtures of Rangers and Bayer Leverkusen, he moved to Schalke 04 on a free transfer in July 2001. Although playing out of position during his early months in Germany, he is seen as the natural successor to Andreas Moller at the Arena AufSchalke. Fellow Red Devils Nico van Kerckhoven and Marc Wilmots join him at Schalke.
