Andy Delort opens up about how he feels in Mexico and why he signed for Tigres

Andy Delort has seemingly quashed rumors that he’ll leave the club this month after he admitted he was enjoying life in Monterrey.

Delort has been linked with a number of leading French clubs after struggling for minutes since arriving last summer.

“On the street, people of all ages wear the club colors. Last week, my wife and my son came to the stadium for the first time and hallucinated. Fans have orchestras in the stands, it’s a show. It’s extraordinary,” he said.

“I’m happy to live here and I’m happy to be part of the club”.

However, he acknowledges it wasn’t always the case. Life was tough when he first touched down on Mexican soil:

“At first I had two complicated months compared to my life in Caen. I needed to work twice as hard while I adapted to a new country”

Lastly, the 25-year-old also revealed Gignac was a decisive factor when he made the decision to leave Ligue 1.

“The presence of ‘Dede’ was decisive in my choice of club,” he continued. “I’ve always said, he is a player who inspired me tremendously since I was little. Outside of football, we are always together.”

Delort might get a chance to play next week after Gignac missed training today.
