Morocco coach on excluding Ziyech: His behavior is inappropriate and did not suit a player for the national team


Bosnian coach Vahid Halilhodzic, coach of the Moroccan national football team, revealed the absence of Hakim Ziyech, a professional in the ranks of Chelsea, from the Atlantic Lions camp, in preparation for the confrontations between Sudan and Guinea in the World Cup qualifiers “Qatar 2022”.

According to Moroccan media, Halilhodzic revealed that he excluded Ziyech from the camp because the Blues striker did inappropriate things, and that this decision is a disciplinary decision.


Today, Wednesday, Halilhodzic said, in media statements before the last training, in preparation for facing Sudan, tomorrow, Thursday: “Since I came and I was frank and telling the truth about Ziyash, in the last two camps, especially the last, his behavior was not commensurate with a player for the national team capable of providing positive things. He arrived so late he refused to work.”

Halilhodzic added: “The national team is above everyone, and as long as I am here, I will maintain this matter. This is the first time in my career as a coach that I witness behavior that disappoints me. There are players who refused to play some friendly matches on the pretext of injury, and after they were examined, it was found that they do not suffer from any injury.” .

The Bosnian coach continued: “The national team is a pride for everyone, and evidence of a person’s connection to his country. As long as I am here, I will not allow these abuses. It is possible to leave, but I want to do it with my head held high.”“.
