Although he was born in Belgium, Kevin spent his childhood in England until in Africa.

When he was four years old, Kevin started his football game. At that time, he joined the club at his school located in Drongen. One of his biggest motivations for becoming a well-known footballer was that he was not pleasant enough.
At the age of 14 years, Kevin left home due to not getting too much support to become a professional footballer. He then joined the Genk football academy and began to have some basic skills to play the ball. A few years in the academy, Kevin had taken a lot of media attention thanks to his abilities.
Although born of a wealthy family, Kevin lived by only relying on money earned from playing football. Continuing to sharpen his soccer talent, Kevin’s game was getting better. He claimed to only visit his family on weekends.
At that time, Kevin thought that he just wanted to dedicate his life to playing football.

In Germany, Kevin had a bad experience. At that time, he was cheated by his lover. The worse thing was that his lover cheated on his own teammate, Thibaut Courtois. After getting a conflict, the three found a middle ground until it ended peacefully.
In 2015, Kevin’s ability was in demand by Manchester City. Right at the end of August 2015, Kevin was officially in uniform for The Citizen. Together with City, he signed a contract for the next six years. At that time, he was carried off with a dowry worth 55 million euros.
