Continued education

Youri decided that he would continue his studies along with football till the year 2016. He was balancing between his studies and career as a football player at the same time. 

He continued until he was 18 years old, but he dropped out after that as his football career needed way more focus, and he had a baby on the way. It was hard for him, but he pulled it off in a lovely manner.

Besides football

Both of Youri’s parents were teachers and judo instructors, and Youri had been practicing judo since a young age and is very good at it. 

He also likes to play basketball, go shopping, listen to music, watch TV, play video games, and most importantly, he likes to spend time with his family and hang out with his friends whenever he can. 

First in the family to become a footballer

Youri was from a middle-class family, and he was the first in his family to grow such a love for football as his parents and siblings were not big fans. 

He started to like football ever since he started to learn how to walk. His parents understood his passion for the sport and sent him to a football academy named Anderlecht at the age of 5. 

When he was young and was told to write an essay about what he wanted to be when he grew up by his teachers in school, he always wrote about how he wanted to be a football player.

Football only if education is continued

Youri was still young when he signed a contract with Anderlecht and needed permission from his parents. 

So, as his mother cared so much about his future, she considered his education to be equally essential and only let him continue the contract if he would continue his education and make both of them his equal priorities.
