Rabat – Two weeks after crashing into a pedestrian in Marrakech, Morocco’s Amine Harit has returned to Germany and begun training for the new season with his club Schalke 04.
The 21-year-old rising star was involved in a road accident that killed a pedestrian. The accident occurred while the player was driving with his 14-year-old brother on Saturday, June 30, shortly after midnight.
The Atlas Lion appeared in the presentation of the Schalke team on Monday, July 16. The picture was shared on the club’s social media accounts.
According to the local press, the player met club officials who advised him not to make a statement but to focus on his performance.
The delays were decided by the First Instance Tribunal of Marrakech to allow the insurance company to process the claims of the rights holders of the victim. The player is exempted from attending the hearings, but his lawyer will represent him.
Since the accident, the Atlas Lion has counted on the support and help of his sports director, Christian Heidel, who announced earlier this month that Harit got his passport and driver’s license back.
The sports director also claimed that the player “does not need to appear,” as his defense must only sign official documents concerning the settlement with the family of the victim.
“He will stay with the family a few more days, we also prefer him, because he would probably be alone in Germany, he will come to Gelsenkirchen at the appropriate time,” said Harit’s boss.
