Zaki will join the Royal Moroccan Football Federation’s technical team.
Rabat – The leadership of the Moroccan football club Difaa Hassani d’El Jadida (DHJ) announced in a Facebook post the departure of its renowned coach Badou Zaki on Monday, December 23, to join the national Moroccan football team.
