The player appeared in new videos training in preparation for the upcoming season with his Saudi football club Al Nasser. His appearance increased speculations and rumors.
Rabat – Videos and photos of Moroccan player Abderrazak Hamdallah’s training have gone viral on social media after his exit from Morocco’s training camp in preparation for the 2019 African Cup of Nations (CAN).
The footballer appeared in the videos training for the upcoming season with Saudi Football Club Al Nassr a few days after Morocco’s Royal Football Federation (FRMF) claimed that Hamdallah left Morocco’s camp due to hip and back injuries on June 13.
Football fans and observers dismissed FRMF’s claims, suggesting that there have been other motives behind Hamdallah’s exit as he appeared in good shape during the friendly game between Morocco and Gambia on June 12.

Sports news outlets speculated that the player’s exit was due to a rift with his teammate Faycal Fajr during Wednesday’s match.
Fouzi Lekjaa, the President of FRMF, has commented on the case denying rumors that there were other reasons that urged the footballer to leave the camp.
“Abderrazak Hamdallah is a player like any other. He left as Amine Harit and Ayoub El Kabi, who left due to injuries,” he said.
He added that “the negative point in this case is to summarize the national team in one player.”
He also reassured citizens that the national football team training camp is in good condition, emphasizing that the footballers will do their best to secure the title.
The competition will take place between June 21 and July in Egypt.
