Thomas Meunier (born 12 September 1991) is a Belgian footballer who plays as a right back for Club Brugge in the Belgian Pro League.

Career[edit]

Meunier was signed by Club Brugge from Belgian Third Division team Virton in January 2011, with the actual transfer to be completed during the summer 2011 transfer period. A few days earlier, Club Brugge had just missed out on the transfers of Dalibor Veselinović and Jelle Van Damme and therefore wanted to make sure Meunier would not become the third near miss. Club Brugge managed to complete the deal before any of the several other interested Belgian clubs (Anderlecht, Standard Liège, Sint-Truiden and Zulte Waregem) could.[1]

On 31 July 2011, Club Brugge played its first match of the 2011–12 season against Westerlo in which Meunier was allowed to play the final 20 minutes. Meunier played a decent match, getting on the score sheet in the process.[2]

International career[edit]

In September 2011, Meunier was called up for the Belgium U21 team and scored in the 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification match against Azerbaijan U21.[3]
