Youcef Touati, French-born Algerian football player, Died at 27


Youcef Touati was born on March 29, 1989, in Saint-Denis and died in 2017.

He was an Algerian football player.

He played as an attacking midfielder.

He started his career bouncing around the junior ranks of several different clubs: ES Paris, Red Star 93, CS Sedan and Paris FC.

During 2005, at age 16, he joined the Amiens SC academy where he stayed for two years.

During 2007, the club offered Touati a professional trainee contract but, on the advice of his agent, he declined it to go join Spanish-side Villareal CF.

But, Touati was unable to sign with Villareal since the club was not willing to pay Amiens for the transfer.

Finally, he returned to Amiens four months later, this time to sign with the city’s other team, Amiens AC.

Youcef Touati passed away at 27 years old.
