Saadane: ' 2015 African Cup, Morocco refused for fear of Algeria '

The Technical Director of the Algerian Football Federation FAF recently shared a very remarkable sneer to neighbouring country Morocco.

What should have been a great football party, finally ended in a deception for the Moroccan soccer fan. The Organization of the African Cup by 2015, which initially was in the hands of the Moroccan Government, bond and was due to health considerations (ed. ebola outbreak in West Africa) returned to the African football CAF. This choice hung Morocco months long a suspension above the head, the CAF suspended Morocco for the Africa Cups of 2017 and 2019 and threw there also still a hefty fine on top. Equatorial Guinea eventually went with the Organization of the African final tournament.

A punishment that course down the wrong way lap of the Moroccan stakeholders, which led to a job at the highest sport Tribunal CAS. This Morocco eventually suggested in the right, the punishment remained in the long run limited to paying a substantially lower damages.


An issue that is now long forgotten and forgiven, the CAF on all possible planes behind Morocco as a soccer country. However could the former (Federal) coach of Raja Casablanca and Algeria among other resist this week still resorting to the much-discussed incident. In a radio broadcast of the Algerian Football Magazine had the current technical director of the Algerian football country another lecture on Morocco's reasons for the tournament from the hands. He said:

The Algerians eventually stranded in the quarter final against the Ivorians, the country what with national coach Herve Renard took with the African title.
