Salim El Jebari in the sights of Walid Regragui

Salim El Jebari, the talented striker of the rojiblancos, has decided to play for the Atlas Lions at the expense of La Roja. He is expected to meet Moroccan national team coach Walid Regragui later this week.

The young footballer had been called up by the Spanish U-19 team for the two friendlies against Norway, but approached the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to evade the call-up.

The reason is that Salim decided to play with Morocco, his parents’ native country and of which he is a national, like other footballers who have made the same decision, such as Achraf Hakimi, from PSG or Munir El Haddadi. , now at Getafe and who has even become an A international with Spain.

Well-informed sources have revealed to Hesport that coach Regragui has set an appointment to meet the Rojiblancos forward this week, after being convinced of his technical abilities. It is expected that the player will gain the confidence of the Moroccan coach in the coming period, thus becoming one of the pioneers of the offensive line of the “Atlas Lions”.

According to the same sources, Salim El Jebari informed the RFEF of his decision a few days ago after the Spain U19 national team coach invited him to participate in two friendlies against Norway, affirming the choice of his country of origin.

The same sources revealed that Moussa El Habchi, in charge of analyzing the performances within the technical staff of the first national team, met this week three Moroccan talents in Belgium, mandated by Regragui, with a view to summoning them to the next preparatory camp. . These include defenders Ismaƫl Kandouss and Mehdi Boukamir, professionals at Union Saint-Gilloise and Charleroi SC.

It should be noted that the Moroccan national team will face Brazil in a friendly next March in Tangier, on the condition that they travel to Spain to meet the Peruvian national team in the second friendly match during the same month.
