Though a midfielder, Yassine Chikhaoui can also play on the attack line or the wings and has a rare flare for goals. Yassine Chikhaoui’s career started with Tunisian club, ES Sahel where he became the youngest team captain in the history of the club at the age of 19.
He also won the CAF Champions league and participated at the FIFA’s club World Cup before joining FC Zuumlrich on a 5-year contract on 23 May 2007. During the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations, it was reported that many big clubs had scouts present to watch Chikhaoui like Manchester United, Bayern Munchen and Juventus. Unfortunately, after impressing at the African Cup of Nations he was forced to take time out to get a recurring knee problem treated.
On 26 April 2009, he completed his recovery by returning to play for the Zurich first team. Weeks later he cemented his comeback with a goal and contributed, as a late substitute, to helping his team win and stay top in the title race. With the transfer window now opened in Europe, it is certain that Yassine will be using the Africa Cup of Nations to increase his stock on the transfer market so as to be able to clinch a contract with a bigger club. He is the person to watch on the Tunisian team.
