Moroccan Mazraoui contacts a man of confidence Halilhodzic to find out the reason for his absence from the national team
Nassir Mazraoui, Ajax Amsterdam star, was absent from the ranks of the first Moroccan team, during the last training camp of the “Atlas Lions”, where coach Vahid Halilhodzic’s battalion faced the Ghana and Burkina Faso teams in a friendly match. And Al-Araby Al-Jadeed learned from a source close to the player, Mazraoui, that the latter contacted Halilhodzic’s assistant, French Stefan Gilley, in order to inquire about the reason for his absence from the ranks of the Moroccan team, after the coaching staff of the Moroccan team dropped him from the last list, without being revealed. The real reason behind his expulsion, although coach Halilhodzic, certainly satisfied in his press conference, that he has in his place Achraf Hakimi, the Inter Milan player. Halilhodzic’s assistant did not give a convincing answer to Mazraoui, saying only that Halilhodzic is responsible for selecting the players, and he has no right to interfere in technical matters, which are the prerogative of the coach and no one else. And Moroccan media had revealed that the reason behind not calling Halilhodzic, player Nasir Mazraoui, is due to his entering into a sharp discussion, with the baggage carrier within the Moroccan national team, in the Morocco match against Central Africa, in the framework of the fourth round of the African Nations Cup qualifiers, without For Halilhodzic to leave until the moment, to deny or confirm whether it was really the Ajax player who caused the accident or another player.
