This incredibly mature for someone his age midfielded makes the strong impact into the first team of Anderlecht. During pre season he was given few chances by the coach John van der Brom and he impressed everyone with his play even in the game against strong Hamburger SV. Because of all this, on 28th July 2013 Youri was given the chance to debut in Jupiler League against Lokeren and he played pretty well. In Brussels and whole Belgium they strongly believe in him and many even now see the future boss of the midfield of Diables Rouges in him.
