Algerian team: Delort’s return not to Slimani’s taste?

Obviously, the return of Andy Delort to the national team was not to the liking of some of his teammates. We quote, among others, Islam Slimani who dropped a pike at Algiers airport about the “comeback” of the Nice striker.

As everyone knows, a new page opens for Andy Delort with the national team. After an absence that lasted a year, he was ejected from Djamel Belmadi’s list of “banned”. It is therefore from the regrouping of the month of September that the player made his big comeback to the Greens.

“Certainly, I have already said that as long as I am coach, Delort will not return. But I did not want to say that the doors of the selection are definitively closed to him. To be more precise, I had planned to go to the World Cup and I was going to leave after this one, end of a cycle. My successor would have had the possibility of integrating Andy Delort. Today, I’m still coach and if we had been in the World Cup, Delort would not have been there… Andy gave me some private information, which I couldn’t know because he didn’t tell me. hadn’t talked about it. I tend to believe it. That, plus the absence of the World Cup, the difficult matches to come, so there is no longer a problem”. As a reminder, national coach Djamel Belmadi will say about his striker during the last press conference.

Slimani drops a spade at Algiers airport

It seems that the return of Andy Delort in selection has not been to the taste of some of his teammates, like Islami Slimani. The latter, dropped a pike at Algiers airport about the ghost Delort.

Indeed, the Stade Brestois striker was approached by journalists on his arrival to give his impressions of the Greens internship. But he refused to grant statements, saying only: “Talk to those who have returned. I’m still here. I am not one of those who came back”. he launched.

Obviously, “SuperSlim” alluded to the Nice striker. The latter will therefore have to wait a little to regain the confidence of his teammates in the selection.

Also remember that Belmadi revealed during his last press conference that he will speak to the players about the return of Delort. A way in which the coach wants to avoid possible discomfort in the locker room.
