Billy Koumetio posts farewell message to Yasser Larouci on Instagram

Liverpool’s academy is stacked with talent, the first team isn’t too bad either. As a result it can often prove tricky breaking through into the senior side, there’s just too much competition and standards are so high. One player who hasn’t made the grade appears to be on his way. Billy Koumetio has posted a farewell message to Yasser Larouci on Instagram.

Who is Yasser Larouci?

Liverpool signed Yasser Larouci from Le Havre in 2017.

The Algerian arrived as an electric, fleet footed winger.

He starred for Barry Lewtas’ U18s before the decision was made to convert him into a full back.

The youngster excelled in his new role and played a key part in the U18s’ FA Youth Cup win in 2019.

Despite his success in the academy he’s failed to break into the first team and last summer turned down a new five-year-deal with the club.

Billy Koumetio farewell for Yasser Larouci

The Algerian’s contract expires in the summer and it looks like there’s no new deal in the offing.

What RTK has to say

This departure has appeared inevitable since last summer.

Just where Larouci will end up is anybody’s guess, Leeds United were rumoured to hold an interest in January.

The Yorkshire side could well snap him up on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Wherever he ends up we wish him every success, he’s got plenty of potential and it’ll be pleasure to watch him improve. Fingers crossed he stays in England.
