In 2006, Yontcha joined Qatar's Sadd Sports Club, winning an unprecedented (in national football history) quadruple in his first season. Two years later he moved to Europe, penning a deal with Romanian club CS Otopeni and appearing sparingly during the campaign as the team finished in 17th position, with the subsequent Liga I relegation.
Yontcha spent the following seasons in Portugal, starting with C.F. Os Belenenses in 2009–10, again being relegated from top level football after his team ranked second from the bottom. His first game in the Primeira Liga occurred on 14 August 2009, when he featured the full 90 minutes in a 0–0 away draw against Leixões SC.
In the 2010 summer, Yontcha signed for two years with S.C. Olhanense, scoring three goals in 19 games in his debut season – nine starts, 842 minutes played – as the Algarve side retained their top level status.
