Algeria international Andy Delort has set his sights on qualifying for a European competition with Montpellier HSC after recovering from coronavirus.

The 28-year-old marksman tested positive for Covid-19 last month and he missed Montpellier’s opening game of the 2020/21 French Ligue 1 season against Rennes.

Delort, who netted 14 times in 36 league appearance for Montpellier last season, is keen to help his club secure a top-five finish in the league.

“I’m fine, I haven’t had any symptoms so I’m fine. Unfortunately, it came at the wrong time because I missed this match in Rennes,” Delort told RMC Sport.

“But the important thing is health, everything went well, my family was not affected so that is most important.

“Already I no longer have the test in the nose, this is good news because it is really unpleasant in the nose,” he continued.

“I have a blood test, it’s much better. I’m relieved about it now I can’t wait for it to pick up again. “I’m good here, everyone knows it.

“I will continue to do what I know how to do: score goals, be decisive. I will try to exceed 14 goals. In any case, I will work for and do everything to bring the club to Europe.

“We’ve been progressing for a few seasons now. We must manage to cross this course. There was good recruitment,” he added.

“We have to keep the same mentality. And if we’re good and consistent, our luck will turn. We have to improve, sort out the few problems and we can aim for something higher.”

Delort has netted once in seven international matches for Algeria.
