Yazici had a rather unusual childhood for a footballer. “I would spend summers as a shepherd with my grandmother,” he once revealed, but things changed rapidly once his talent emerged. Helped his school team become World High School Champions in 2015, starred for Trabzonspor after breaking into the first team and earned himself a big-money move to Lille. His career then stalled for a few years but the attacking midfielder is back from the wilderness after rediscovering his form at Lille and forcing his way into the Turkey squad again. Creative and dangerous from set pieces, Yusuf Yazici hit the headlines in December when his home was ransacked by burglars for a second time while he played in a Europa Conference League match. Two high-value watches, clothes and leather goods were stolen as he scored a penalty in Lille’s 3-0 win against Klasvik.
