Sébastien Bruzzese (born 1 March 1989) is a Belgian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Sint-Truidense on loan from Club Brugge.


Born in Liège, Bruzzese began his career with R.F.C. de Liège, who was promoted to the Promotion A team and made his first three prof games. He moved in July 2007 to the reserve squad from Anderlecht and in August 2008 promoted to first squad. Anyhow, he didn't play any matches. In the next season (2008/09), he was second keeper for a short while. The first keeper Daniel Zitka was injured and the first substitute Silvio Proto was lent to Germinal Beerschot.

At the end of January 2010, Bruzzese moved to AA Gent. this was because Bruzesse never got the chance to play, as he was only the fifth keeper after Silvio Proto, Daniel Zitka, Davy Schollen and Michaël Cordier. In the same period, he played seven caps for the Belgian national team under 19 years.

Bruzzese is sometimes compared to former keeper Christian Piot. He also owes a lot to Jacky Munaron, who made his transfer from Anderlecht to AA Gent possible. Munaron is a former keeper himself of Club Luik and Anderlecht.[1]

On 31 January 2011 Bruzzese and his team-mate Christophe Lepoint were involved in a serious car accident. Allegedly, they were returning from a night-club and that Bruzzese had been drinking, but this has never been confirmed.[2]

Following the 2011-12 season, Bruzzese moved to Zulte Waregem.


Bruzzese was born in Belgium and is of Italian descent.[3] In 2007 and 2008, Bruzzese gained 7 caps for the Belgian under-19 team.
