At the absence of police officers, waves of avid football fans sneaked to the building of the Moroccan Royal Football Federation, creating disorder and annoyance to the journalists who were there to cover the event.
The intruders who broke into the building of the federation were shooting slogans in favor of the coach they hope to lead the national team, namely Badou Zaki.
The crowd gathered before the building of the Football Federation was shouting “Zaki, Zaki W la Ghair Zaki” (Zaki, Zaki and no one but Zaki).
Journalists expressed their irritation at the way the Federation dealt with them.
Nafai Errifai reported to Radio Mars that the “federation doesn’t respect the journalists who came to cover the event. He added that “he couldn’t carry out an interview with Nourdine Enebet, the former Moroccan football player, because of the chaos and disturbing noise around the building of the Moroccan Royal Federation.
Speaking to Radio Mars, Qaima Belaoushi, the well-known sport journalist from Al Oula TV, said that “it is a shame to have seen such unprofessional conditions that characterized the scene before the building of the federation” adding that Journalist have the right to collect news in good and proper conditions.
The Journalists, as well as the huge crowd of people gathered before the federation have waited too long in miserable conditions before Mr. Karim El Alem, the spokesman of the committee in charge of deciding the coach of the national team, made public the name of the new coach that replaces Gerets.
