Although Morocco denied in a statement that Vahid Halilhodzic is being fired as a national coach, the rumors have reignited by André Villas-Boas. According to Portuguese media, the latter is in talks with the Moroccan union.
Villas-Boas has had his hands free since leaving Olympique Marseille in January 2021, the possible arrival of the 44-year-old Portuguese trainer would be good news for Hakim Ziyech and Noussair Mazraoui. The playmaker of Chelsea and right back of Ajax cannot go through one door with Halilhodzic and will not make themselves available as long as the Bosnian is still at the helm of De Leeuwen van de Atlas.
Halilhodzic started working for Morocco in 2019, but he is under attack, among other things, due to his broiled relationship with Ziyech and Mazraoui. Performance is also disappointing, despite being placed for the World Cup. For example, Morocco was eliminated in the African Cup quarterfinals this year. A Bola writes that Villas-Boas must therefore lead the African country during the final tournament in Qatar. He was already spotted in Rabat.
