FIFA rejected, today, Thursday, the Moroccan Federation’s request to allow Mounir El-Haddadi, the Seville striker, to represent the Atlas Lions during the coming period. FIFA’s refusal came despite a recent change in laws, which have become more flexible.
FIFA said, through its official spokesperson, that Morocco could appeal the decision to the International Sports Court, “Al-Kas.”“
The refusal of Mounir El-Haddadi to play with the Moroccan national team comes due to the player’s participation with Spain under the age of 21, and Mounir El-Haddadi played at least one official match with the Spanish national team when he was a player in the Barcelona team in the 2017/2016 season..
Wahid Khaliluzc, coach of the Moroccan national team, explained that Al-Haddadi will leave the national team tomorrow morning, after being on the list that will compete in Senegal and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in friendly during the current international suspension.
