Licensed with ” immediate effect and without notice or compensation” on July 29 for serious misconduct “, El Moustapha Hadji, the former assistant coach of the national team, accused the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) of having deprived him of his working rights throughout the time spent within the structure. The FRMF accuses him in his letter of dismissal, of having been absent from his post of ” unjustified manner since July 18, 2022, i.e. for more than 4 days during a period of 12 months”.
In statements to the press, El Moustapha Hadji confided that he worked for the FRMF while being deprived of his labor rights guaranteed to him by the Labor Code, stressing that he was not declared to the Caisse National Social Security (CNSS) and did not have Compulsory Health Insurance (AMO) for 8 years.
With regard to the reason for the dismissal, which is his unjustified absence from his post, former coach Vahid Halilhodzic’s assistant explained that he justified his absence from the technical department with a medical certificate, following an operation he underwent for a sciatica.
The African Ballon d’Or even confided that he had been qualified by the Federation as ” psychopath and crook”, which he did not accept after years in the service of Moroccan football. In this sense, he confirmed to the media that he was going to resort to FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) or the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in order to recover his rights.
The FRMF, it will be recalled, dismissed El Mustafa Hadji from his post, without notice or compensation, on the grounds that the assistant coach of ” Atlas lions » was absent for 4 days without giving any reason.
FRMF sources clarified, in a previous statement to “ Hesport “, that the Federation wanted to close Hadji’s file by mutual agreement, during the scheduled meeting between the two parties last Friday. But his absence prompted the officials to apply the immediate dismissal procedure, relying on article 39 of the Labor Code.
In the same dismissal letter, the Federation informed Hadji that he could “contest the decision before the competent court within 90 days from the date of receipt of the letter, in accordance with article 65 of the Work “.
