Biography

Born in Brazzaville in the Republic of the Congo, Yannick moved to Belgium at the age of eight and holds a Belgian passport. His first foray into football was at amateur level with his local side Evere before joining RWS Bruxelles at age 21. His first professional move came when he joined Mons in the Belgian 2nd Division three years later.

A successful season up front for Mons led to a move to 1st Division A side Oostende in 2015. At the same time, he earned international recognition for Congo, playing for the U23s in a friendly match. First team options for Mons, however, were limited during his first campaign and after a short spell on loan to First Division B club OH Leuven, he left the club. He opted next to leave Belgium, signing up with Adana Demirspor in Turkey for the 2017-18 season.

Shortly after the start of the 2018-19 season, Yannick made a move to Scotland and signed a two year deal with United.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Yannick was born on this date in Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Born in Brazzaville in the Republic of the Congo, Yannick moved to Belgium at the age of eight and holds a Belgian passport. His first foray into football was at amateur level with his local side Evere before joining RWS Bruxelles at age 21. His first professional move came when he joined Mons in the Belgian 2nd Division three years later.

  • United finally got their first win of the season with a 4-0 victory over Elgin City at Borough Briggs in their final Betfred Cup group.

  • Robbie Neilson’s first home game in charge of Dundee United saw an entertaining 1-1 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Against opponents who had not lost a league game since the 13th of March, United largely dominated the game and would have won easily if not for a combination of resolute defending and wayward finishing.
