Halilhodzic determined to repatriate Nayef Agued, “like all those I summoned”

Vahid Halilhodzic does not intend to give in to pressure from European clubs who have banned their internationals, especially Africans, from joining their respective teams. The Atlas Lions coach said he was counting on the presence of all the players he called, including Nayef Aguerd.

The coronavirus crisis is not helping Vahid Halilhodzic’s business. After unveiling his list of summoned players, the Morocco coach has been blocked by many clubs who refuse to release their players because of the danger of the pandemic such as Stades Rennais for Nayef Aguerd, of Inter Milan for Achraf Hakimi or Fiorentina for Sofyan Amrabat.

Very reassured by this decision supported by FIFA, the Bosnian technician intends to take the necessary measures to ensure the presence of his best elements for the two matches counting for the 5th and 6th round of qualifying (group E) of the 33rd edition. of the CAN against Mauritania and Burundi.

“I do not understand this decision of FIFA”, declared Vahid Halilhodzic, in the program “L’Equipe du Soir”. “It’s always an event for a player to come and play in Africa, and we deprive him of that. It is unfair, unsportsmanlike and even discriminatory, because not all players are concerned ”, he added.

In this sense, the former FC Nantes evoked the case of Nayef Aguerd, after the decision of the Professional Football League to block the extra-community internationals of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2.

“What added to the confusion is the decision of the LFP and the French clubs. I can assure you that here, people are up against France ”, added Halilhodzic. According to him, Nayef Aguerd will make the trip “Like all the players I have called”.

“I am very attached to Stade Rennais and to the Pinault family. I spoke to Florian Maurice. He reproaches me for saying that if a player does not come, he takes his responsibilities. I answered him. FIFA has touched on an essential principle of the relationship between a club and a national team. Normally even an injured player must come. And there, we start to hold back some! All the players must come. It’s my principle! “, it remains to be seen whether the Bosnian will succeed with FIFA.
