Raja de Casablanca announced on Thursday that it is parting with the services of its trainer Rachid Taoussi, former coach of the Atlas Lions.
The separation between the two was anticipated, but the Greens club has just announced it officially. Raja is not just parting with Rachid Taoussi, but also with his assistant coach, Mohamed Al Bekkari, and sports director, Aziz Amri. It is specified that the separation was made by mutual consent.
The announcement was made after the club’s defeat yesterday, against Olympique Safi (3-2) at the Mohammed V complex in Casablanca, on behalf of the 27th round of the championship which excludes the club from the race for the crowning of the title of the league.
With this defeat, Raja widens its gap with Wydad Casablanca, which now stands at 6 points since WAC beat Renaissance Berkane 1 goal against 0.
The dismissal of Rachid Taoussi is explained by the results deemed “disappointing” in Raja’s last two matches, not only with Olympique Safi but also during the match with Spoting Chabab de Mohammedia which ended in a draw.
