Youcef Belaïli explains the choice to join Stade Brestois

In the last hours of the transfer window, Stade Brestois lost Romain Faivre, sold 18 M€ to OL, but recovered Youcef Belaïli, who arrived free of any contract since the end of his adventure with Qatar SC. The arrival of the Algerian international has aroused enormous enthusiasm, especially on social networks where the followers of the attacking midfielder have exploded the subscriptions and notifications of the Breton club. “As the rumor swelled, we gained subscribers on our various accounts. We didn’t really understand what was going on until we discovered that Youcef Belaïli had 3 million subscribers on Instagram… more than Olympique de Marseille (2.1 million)! » explained Florent Corre, the communication manager at Ouest France. “On Facebook, we went from 144,000 subscribers to 512,000. On Twitter, from 91,000 to 98,000. On Instagram, from 79,000 to 211,000. And on TikTok, from 126,000 to 176,000! »

On to the field now. The 29-year-old intends to help Stade Brestois stay in Ligue 1 where he currently occupies 13th place after 22 matches. The choice of Ty Zefs may have surprised more than one because Belaïli was particularly followed in our championship, in particular by teams of greater renown. He has however decided to leave for Brittany, he who returns to France after a first missed visit to Angers during the 2017/2018 season. “I was not given the chance to play when I was at Angers (1 appearance). That’s why I came back, to play with Esperance de Tunis where I won two Champions Leagues, two Super Cups, I won the CAN and the Arab Cup with the national team. Afterwards I decided to come back to Europe to progress»assures the teammate of Haris Belkebla in the national team, who therefore has a little revenge to take. “To give everything in Europe, to show who Youcef is to people. Brest is a good way to develop this.
