Wesley Sonck (born August 9 1978 in Ninovemarker) is a Belgianmarker football player, who currently plays as a striker for Club Brugge and the Belgium national football team. He played for K.R.C. Genk in the Jupiler League from where he joined AFC Ajax in 2003 for about £5 million. He finished as the top scorer of Jupiler League in 2002 with 30 goals and in 2003 22 goals, which he shared with Cédric Roussel.

Club career

AFC Ajax

Two months after joining the club, Sonck went on loan to AFC Ajax, where he had an argument with then manager Ronald Koeman. Sonck sustained a kidney disease and did not return to action before the end of 2004-2005 season.

Borussia Mönchengladbach

His game with Borussia Mönchengladbach of the German Bundesliga was hampered by injuries. Mönchengladbach then signed him on a permanent contract, a deal initially arranged already at the start of his loan. In the summer of 2005 Sonck had three of his ribs broken after a horrific tackle by Wilfred Bouma in a goalless, meaningless friendly between Borussia Mönchengladbach & PSV Eindhoven. Sonck took six months to recover, marking his return to competitive football with a goal in a 3-1 defeat by Bayern Munich. He scored three more in 13 further Bundesliga games for Mönchengladbach until he was forced out for three months with an injury in the hollow of his knee at the start of the season of 2006-2007.

Club Brugge

He left Gladbach at the end of the season, joining Club Brugge on a year long loan deal while Borussia Mönchengladbach began playing in the second tier of the Bundesliga.

International career

Sonck was called for the national team during the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. In the match versus Spain he scored Belgium's only goal in that match, thus ending Casillas and Reina's undefeated streak of 710 minutes.
