The FRMF condemns the hostile behavior and discrimination toward Moroccans during the CHAN’s opening in Algeria.
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) has denounced and strongly condemned the “malicious actions” and ” despicable schemes” that took place during the opening of the African Championship of Nations for local players (CHAN) in Algeria on Friday.
In a statement published on its website, the FRMF was outraged by the “provocative and surrealistic speech that flouted the regulations governing the organisation of football events under the supervision of the Confederation of African Football (CAF)”.
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation has written to CAF, urging it to “assume full responsibility for these flagrant transgressions which have no link with the principles and values of football,” the statement continued. “The FRMF rejects the racist remarks made by supporters present at the opening ceremony against the Moroccan public known throughout the world for its civic-mindedness.”
