Removed from the last list of the Moroccan selection by Vahid Halilhodzic for the September break, attacking midfielder Hakim Ziyech could finally make his return with the Atlas Lions, but on one condition. According to the words of a member of the entourage of the former Ajax Amsterdam, on condition of anonymity, collected by the Arabic-speaking media Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Ziyech could find the jersey of the Cherifian kingdom only if the Bosnian no longer holds the post of coach.
A scenario that would seem improbable for the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, since Morocco plays during the international cuts the qualifiers counting for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, in addition to preparing for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled for January 9 to February 6, 2022. As a reminder, the former coach of Paris Saint-Germain had justified the non-summons of the 28-year-old player by his lack of involvement and seriousness during the last gatherings, which created a total rupture between the two men. Selected 35 times with Morocco, Hakim Ziyech scored 16 goals for the Atlas Lions.
