Although he traveled abroad for nearly five years, but the Algeria international striker, Islam Slimani, has yet to dispose of the national championship results and the amateur football thought.
An English journalist reported that Islam Slimani boycotted the British media since he joined Newcastle club last January.
The journalist, Miles Starforth, said in a tweet that Slimani had refused to answer the questions of trouble-wielding journalists after Newcastle and West Bromwich last Saturday, drawing the 35th round of the England championship, noting that the Algerian international took part in the match from the 65th minute, and his club lost with (0-1), not to mention Slimani’s attack on West Bromwich defender Craig Dawson.
The reporter expected the Newcastle manager to allow Slimani to return to Leicester City next summer, as the loan deal was a failure, according to Miles Starforth.
Islam Slimani is not boycotting the British media because he has not learned English, although he has been living in UK since the summer of 2016, but because the Algerian international still has his mind smeared with national heroism, as coaches and players often refuse to answer press questions, and the heads of the clubs rarely attend the training of their teams, because they are busy with trade, and they love the night and things that make people ashamed of going into it.
The Algerian supporters still remember how do the striker Islam Soleimani celebrated his goal in favor of the Greens in South Korea during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
