Zapping World Eleven LEFT: Christopher Nkunku’s “Little Brother” interview!

Djamel Belmadi is looking for his players. The Algerian coach published the list of elements selected for the next two friendly matches of the Fennecs, against Guinea and Nigeria. One of the highlights of this list is the return of Andy Delort after more than a year of absence. Present at the press conference, Djamel Belmadi returned to many topics and especially the possibility of seeing binationals join the national team (Aouar, Gouiri, etc.). A small anthology of his speeches, transcribed by DZ Football.

The steps of some dual nationals including Houssem Aouar and Amine Gouiri

“If I do not publish my extended list, it is not for nothing. For the others (Gouiri, Aouar etc), it is necessary, in order for them to be elected, that they take their steps. FAF cannot do without their permission. There are many rumors, palavers. We say nothing. Then, in fact, there are things that change some players and that will be seen in the future dates of FIFA. Some players mentioned may be there for this stop but not because of procedures or other points that take longer […] The question is clear and I will answer clearly: yes, for 4 years, I have contacted these players and more than contacted. Go find them, all the names you mentioned, they are 5-6, and ask them if anyone has contacted them!»»

The return of Andy Delort

“It is shameful to talk about Delort’s problem again, he will be with us and it is not positive to talk about it even though I know it will happen. He is the one who renounces himself. Me, I’m not condemning anyone, I’m bringing back players who have done things too. No one has a monopoly on patriotism, I am not closing anyone’s door. I’ll give you a scoop: I’m planning to go to the World Cup and I’ll leave after it, after one cycle. My successor has the possibility to unite Andy Delort. Now, I’m still a coach and if we were in the World Cup, Delort wouldn’t have been there. We must be logical and clear about this, those who campaign, in difficult areas, have this merit. Andy gave me private information, which I can’t know because he didn’t tell me about it. I have always believed this. That, plus the absence of the World Cup, the difficult games to come, so there is no problem.

The loss of M’Bolhi

“M’Bolhi is in our plans, he will be selected but there are other goalkeepers and I like that. Mandréa may not be there, he was injured yesterday in the league. If Mandréa is not there, I don’t think to call M’Bolhi, leave we have him quietly at the club. Medjadel has potential, as Aziz Bourras said, but I think we will draw the EN A’ side of Madjid Bougherra.

Turf condition

“The problem of lawns worries the whole country. We hope to see that this endless problem is completely solved, it should end in the coming months. We see the end of the tunnel”

The purpose of this stop

“For this stop, we want to be competitive. Guinea, we studied it in CAN 2019 and they always have an advantage against us. We want to encounter problems, difficult matches specific to Africa to improve. Most players from Guinea, almost the majority even, play in Europe. I also know their coach, it was a very nice meeting.

“The goal of our two games? To progress, to give the opportunity to some to develop in EN in the specific context of our continent, with experience at the international level. There may be other games against European teams, maybe even in the next break. The goal is to be above all prepared for CAN.
