Brest: What’s going on with Belali? – Football

Although rumors of the termination of Youcef Belali’s contract have been circulating in recent hours, Brest assures that the Algerian attacking midfielder is still at the club. But maybe not for long…

Brest: what is happening with Bela

Belali and Brest, will it end soon?

Is Youcef Belali still a Stade Brestois player? For several Algerian media, the answer was no. The latter had announced since Monday night that the 30-year-old attacking midfielder had terminated his contract with the Breton club. A version finally denied by SB29 this Tuesday.

Contacted by RMC, the Brest management denies having signed a document allowing the termination of the Algerian international’s contract and claims not to have received any formal request in this regard from the player or his entourage. Fennec is also expected at the training center on Wednesday, his return from the international break.

And yet…

False alarm, then? Not really. Because despite this denial, the radio says that a divorce between the two parties seems to be in process. On the one hand, the Finistrano club would be fed up with the behavior of the player, author of several gaps outside the field in recent months , as Le Tlgramme explains. On the other hand, the former resident of Qatar SC has never set foot in Britain and no longer hides a grudge against him, wanting to return to Qatar or go to another Gulf country.

Arrived on a free transfer in January 2022, Belali was not very convincing during his first six months at Brest (3 goals and 2 assists in 13 Ligue 1 games). This season, he started four times for Michel Der Zakarian during the first five matchdays, delivering his only two decisive assists against Angers (3-1, during matchday three). From behind, he sat on the bench against Strasbourg (1-1) and PSG (0-1), before being sanctioned against AC Ajaccio (0-1) for accumulating yellow cards. And nothing says that we will see him again with the jersey of the 19th in L1 on his shoulder.
