Yassine's favourite jersey number is seven and he operates as a right-winger. Unlike his father who made his name as a central defender but could also be deployed as a right-full back, Yassine is a wide midfielder stationed to the right of central midfield.

Yassine was born in England while his father was playing for Arsenal and he is eligible to represent Ivory Coast and England at the international level.

He has now been signed on a two-year scholarship deal, meaning he will ply his trade with Leicester City’s under-18s until the end of the 2023-24 season.

Cristiano Ronaldo's Son Unveiled at Man United

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Manchester United seem to have officially unveiled Cristiano Jnr, who now joins his father as a Red Devils at the Old Trafford club.

The 11-year old will wear his father’s iconic number 7 and was spotted holding his shirt during an unveiling alongside another wonder kid.

This comes only months after moving into the Manchester United academy, a move which happened when Cristiano Ronaldo rejoined the Red Devils from Juventus.
