BiographyEdit

Gary grew up in France in a Jewish family along with his brother Jonathan.[1] Gary originally was part of the youth system of Paris Saint-Germain before he sustained a major injury. He continued through the youth ranks of AC Ajaccio before moving down to then Championnat club, AS Cannes.[2]

Arrival to IsraelEdit

Assous arrived in Israel after his brother spent a season with Maccabi Tel Aviv and joined the Maccabi Netanya youth team for a trial.[1] After impressing during a training match between the youth and full teams, Assous was signed by Netanya to a three-year contract starting at $40,000 a year.[3] Within a short time of Lothar Matthäus's arrival to Maccabi Netanya, he decided to release Assous from his contract without even seeing Assous in training.

After being released by Netanya, Assous trialled with Maccabi Ahi Nazareth.[4]
