Algeria manager Djamel Belmadi has revealed his reasons why Liverpool youngster Yasser Larouci was not included in his 23-man squad to face Benin.
Belmadi has stated why Larouci was not selected for the international break. “We will not call up a player who has not played a single minute of football this season. He has played two friendlies. I do not get the fuss.”
Larouci has featured as a left-back for the Reds in pre-season, and has also recovered from an injury he picked up against Sevilla. Algeria face Benin on Monday night.
Brought to the club by Steven Gerrard, Larouci was born in Algeria in El Oued. Follow all the Algerian football news in English with DZ Football.
