In my opinion, right now he's good enough to be a starting left-back at Anderlecht for most Belgian league games. He would struggle against the top teams though. So is he far off? I would say no. But as tobo said, he will have to be patient. He's basically 3rd choice at LB, with their first choice being the starting LB for Sweden's national team and an experienced backup (who's also vice-captain) who played his entire career at Anderlecht so far.
It's a shame he won't play all that much though. I know he's only 18 but he reminds me a lot of Celestine Babayaro (former Anderlecht and Chelsea player, don't know if you remember him). Great pace, great technique. But he's still very raw. Needs games. Also still has a lot of growing up to do (mentally), he doesn't seem to be the brightest cookie in the jar.
