A new player for Didier Deschamps?

While he was selectable in Algeria, Yacine Adli confided that he wanted to wear the jersey of the France team. The AC Milan midfielder applies for the Blues.

Yacine Adli has made her choice. On the eve of the Europa League match between AC Milan and Slavia Prague, the Franco-Algerian was questioned about his choice of international selection. And the native of Vitry-sur-Seine was categorical: he preferred to wear the Blues jersey than the Greens.

“I believe that as a player I want to play at the highest level, so obviously playing with France is a goal, Adli told a press conference. Afterwards, I will explain why, but now is not the time. »

Adli offers himself to Deschamps

Trained at Paris Saint-Germain, a club he left in 2019 to join the Girondins de Bordeaux, Adli has always worn the French team jersey in the youth selections. He played with the Bleuets 47 times, from the U16s to the U20s, and his last selection dates back to 2019. He was never called up for the Espoirs, and even less for the A, but his good season with the AC Milan could allow him to catch the eye of Didier Deschamps.

What is certain is that Vladimir Petkovic, the new Algerian coach, can erase Adli’s name from his shelves. However, the two men crossed paths in Bordeaux a few years ago.
