Youcef Belaïli should not be entitled to a new contract with Stade Brestois at the end of the current season. Not having been able to bring the most expected, the officials of the French club are not thrilled to renew his lease.
Author of a very good Arab Cup with the national team A ‘, Youcef Belaïli went to monetize his talent in the French championship during the last winter transfer window, by opting for Stade Brestois, with the ambition to give another dimension to his career. . To avoid taking risks, the Bretons offered him a six-month contract with an automatic extension which depends on the player’s performance. But for now, his performances are still far from convincing.
Indeed, everyone is unanimous in saying that the child of Oran could have done much better given the enormous potential he enjoys. But obviously, he could not adapt with the entourage of his club. The last failure to qualify for the next World Cup with the national team knocked him out.
Admittedly, the left winger of the national team had enough luck from his coach Michel Der Zakaria. He even had the chance to play regularly, but without having his reference match. Obviously, he still can’t catch up physically, which has had a negative impact on his level.
His statistics do not plead in his favor
A few days before the end of the Ligue 1 Uber Eats championship, Youcef Belaïli is still struggling to regain his best level. Faced with this situation, the management of Stade Brestois is not motivated to keep him in anticipation of next season. Everything suggests that the Algerian striker is on track to leave the Brest ship at the end of the current season.
In eight games played, Belaïli has delivered only one assist and has scored no goals. Statistics that hardly plead in his favor to hope to land a professional contract with another European club or at least stay at Stade Brestois for another season.
Apparently, the Algerian international striker seems more than ever close to a return to the Qatari or Saudi league from the next summer transfer window. It would be the only option to bounce back and relaunch his career after a failed experience in the French league. In any case, everything will be clearer about Belaïli’s future in the weeks to come.
