Anouar Kali (born 3 June 1991) is a Moroccan football player who plays as a defensive midfielder for NAC Breda in the Dutch Eredivisie.[1][2]

Career

Utrecht

Growing up in Utrecht, Netherlands, Kali was friends with Rodney Sneijder[3] and played street football before playing in various youth clubs, such as DOS, Ajax and Elinkwijk.[4] But it was FC Utrecht helped Kali started his professional career[5] and signed his first professional contract in 2010.[citation needed]

Kali made his Utrecht debut on 24 April 2011, coming on as a substitute for Nana Akwasi Asare in the 84th minutes, in a 4–2 win against Vitesse Arnhem.[6] Kali went on to make two appearance in total at the end of the 2010–11 season.

In his second full season, Kali played his first match of the 2011–12 season, coming on as a substitute for Rodney Sneijder in the 85th minutes, in a 3–1 win over Roda JC on 27 August 2011.[7] Kali then scored his first professional career, in a 6–4 win over Ajax on 6 November 2011 after sixteen minutes coming on as a substitute.[8] For his performance, Kali was voted the club's talent of the year.[9] Kali soon sustained ankle injury in April 2012 and missed three matches.[10] Kali went on to make twenty-two appearance for the club.

His third season proved to be a breakthrough for Kali, as he started in the first team regularly. However at the start of the season, Kali was sent-off after a second bookable offense despite a good performance made, in a 1–0 win over PSV on 16 September 2012.[11] Kali then scored his first goal of the season, in a 3–1 win over Willem II on 27 January 2013.[12] Kali earned his fifth yellow card of the season against PSV on 16 February 2013, giving him a one match suspension.[13] Once again, Kali was sent-off for the second time this season after another second bookable offense, in a 6–0 defeat to AZ on 14 April 2013.[14] Coincidentally, Kali was 1500th player to receive a red card in the league's history.[15]

At the end of the 2012–13 season, Kali left the club in the summer of 2013 on a free transfer to join a stronger team.[16] This came after the club negotiated a new contract for Kali.[17] Voetbal International reported that Kali signed a contract, keeping him until 2016.[18] However, Kali turned down a new contract with Utrecht.[citation needed] Kali expressed wishes to join his former club, Ajax.[19] The club's director of football Marc Overmars wasn't keen to sign him.[20]

Roda JC

Surprisingly, Kali signed a three-year contract with Roda JC on 27 June 2013.[21] Kali made his Roda JC debut, in the opening game of the season, in a 3–0 loss against Ajax.[22] Kali then scored his first goal for the club, from a penalty spot, in a 2–1 loss against Feyenoord.[23]

Following Roda JC relegation, Kali's future became uncertain over the surroundings of his contract.[24] In total, Kali made twenty-nine appearance and scoring once in his only season at Roda JC.

FC Utrecht

After the relegation of Roda, Kali returned to his former team FC Utrecht on 25 June 2014 on a free transfer following activation of his release clause if Roda JC were to be relegated.[25] Kali made his Utrecht return in the opening game of the season, in a 2–0 loss against PEC Zwolle.[26] However, his second spell at Utrecht wasn't the same after he tore his hamstring during a match against PSV on 26 October 2014.[27]

In January 2015, he punched his teammate, Kristoffer Peterson, in the face during a training session sidelining Peterson for 6 weeks with a broken jaw. Kali was first only punished with a fine and even played the following weekend. However, on Monday the club eventually suspended Kali for 6 weeks.[28][29][30] Peterson later stated he has forgiven Kali for punching him in the face.[31]

Al-Arabi

On 13 February 2015, it was announced that Kali had been sold to Qatari side Al-Arabi.[32] His departure had left many players at Utrecht surprised.[33]

International career

Kali was born in the Netherlands to parents of Moroccan descent, and has represented the Morocco national under-23 football team 4 times.[34]
