Rabat – In a scenario similar to that of Barcelona’s striker Mounir Haddadi, it seems that Morocco is on its way to lose another great player.
According to German newspaper, DW, Morocco-German player Karim Ballarabi was called up by German coach Joachim Low, to play with Mannschaft in its two upcoming matches against Poland and Ireland on 11 and 14 October.
“Karim Bellarabi has earned his chance at his club with some excellent performances,” Joachim Löw was quoted by DW as saying. “He is incredibly strong in one-on-one situations and is an excellent alternative in our campaign,” he added.
During a meeting with Moroccan coach Bado Zaki, Bayer Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi, who was born to a German mother and a Moroccan father, agreed to defend the colors of the national team.
Following that meeting, Zaki included Bellarabi in the list of players called up for the friendly matches the Atlas Lions are expected to play in October against Kenya and the Republic of Central Africa. But the players hesitated to confirm his decision to play for Morocco and asked the Moroccan coach to give him some time in order to make a final decision.
But with the German coach decision to call up Bellarabi for its upcoming matches, the striker is put in the same delicate situation as Mounir Haddadi last month when he was called up by the Spanish coach Vicente Del Bosque to play with the Spanish team.
In the likely scenario Bellarabi decides to play for Germany, it will be the second great player Morocco loses in less than a month.
