Stade Brestois: a club official talks about the future of Belaïli

Between staying or leaving Stade Brestois, Youcef Belaili has not yet decided on its future. Author of a breathtaking end to the season, the Algerian striker was approached by Brest officials with the aim of negotiating a new contract, but he could leave Brittany in the event that he receives an attractive offer from a another French club with higher sporting ambitions.

Youcef Belaïli was able to find the net again, scoring a goal in the match between Stade Brestois and Girondins de Bordeaux last night, as part of the last day of Ligue 1 Uber Eats. A goal that was not enough for his team to win, in a match where they bowed out with a final score of four goals to two.

For lack of adaptation, the left winger of the national team is struggling to find his marks in the French league. Author of a shy start during the return phase, he was able to come back in force in the last matches. Highlighting his great technical and physical qualities, he was approached by Stade Brestois officials to negotiate a new contract, which expires next June.

Lorenzi: “We want to keep it, but…”

Youcef Belaïli has indeed received a proposal from Stade Brestois officials to re-enter, but as of press time, he has not yet decided on his future. Despite his somewhat advanced age (30), the child from Oran is aiming higher with a view to joining another French club which claims to play the leading roles next season.

During the interview he gave to the Daily “Le Télégramme”, Belaïli confirmed to stay in the French Ligue 1 next season, but without revealing the name of the club whose jersey he will wear. Today, another Stade Brestois manager talks about the player’s future at the club. Sporting director Grégory Lorenzi, since it is about him, says that there are discussions with the player. “Yes, there are discussions, but I have a framework that I will respect. If Youcef wants to stay with us, we also want to,” he said in an interview with “Ouest France”. But he does not close the door to a possible departure of the Algerian striker, indicating: “But there are things the club cannot do. The decision is going to be up to the player.” Obviously, it would be for financial reasons.

It is also to be remembered that Hafid Belaili, father of Youcef and his agent at the same time, said last week that his son is coveted by OGC Nice, FC Toulouse and LOSC Lille. The French media “Le 10 sport” claims that the player has touches with Greek clubs, including Olympiakos. Apparently, it is after the end of the national selection internship that Belaïli should decide on his future.
