Raymaekers carries with him an experience of over 200 games at the top level in Belgium and Holland. Still only 29, Raymaekers has a lot to offer and is a great signing for the Delhi Dynamos.

The defender began his career in the youth ranks of top Belgian club, Genk where he honed his skills. Raymaekers left Genk in 2005 to join Dutch second division side Den Bosch, where he played for two seasons, before moving back to Belgium and signing with second division team Lommel United. He shifted to RS Waasland from the same division in 2009.

OH Leuven signed Raymaekers from Waasland in 2010. A key player in the Leuven side that achieved promotion to the Belgian Pro League in 2010-11, Raymaekers quickly became a fan favourite at the club. Cool, composed, and reliable, Raymaekers is known for his resolute defending, passing skills and prowess in the air.

Commenting on his induction in the Delhi club, Raymaekers said, “I am very excited and motivated to join Delhi Dynamos and I will do my very best to have an amazing experience in India.”

On Raymaekers joining the unit, Delhi Dynamos FC Coach Harm van Veldhoven said, “Wim is a cool customer and is pretty adept at handling pressure when defending. While Delhi Dynamos hopes to play attacking football, having a compact defence is equally important and Wim’s entry will definitely bolster us in that area.”

Delhi Dynamos FC already has two experienced international strikers in Mads Junker and Morten Skoubo. The club is in the process of getting more quality players on board to build a formidable team ahead of the tournament, which kick-starts in October this year. With an experienced coach in Harm, and alliance with Dutch powerhouse Feyenoord Rotterdam, Delhi Dynamos is working towards its mission of building football into a leading sport across Delhi and Northern India.
