Youga relives pain of Charlton relegation

Former Addick Kelly Youga has relived the pain of relegation with Charlton at Crawley Town. He went down with the Addicks from the Premier League in 2008. Youga told the Football League Paper, 'I'd experienced it with Charlton, so I knew how it felt before I came here but that doesn't make it better.'

Central African Republic international Youga joined Crawley at the end of March, playing five games for them. He had been playing for Chinese side Qingdao Hainu. Youga is 29, but claims to have the body of a 22-year old. He hopes to be able to stay at Crawley, but hasn't heard anything yet.

Youga joined Charlton as a youngster in 2005 from Olympique Lyonnais. He was then loaned out to various clubs before making his debut for Charlton in 2008. He became the first choice left back, making 69 appearances and scoring one goal. The end of his career at The Valley was plagued by injury and he left when his contract expired in 2011. He currently plays as a midfielder.
