Vahid Halilhodžić: I will never forgive Morocco for sacking me before World Cup

Published on: 26 December 2022

Bosnian tactician, Vahid Halilhodžić has stressed that he will never forget or forgive Morocco for sacking him before the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The experienced gaffer despite leading the North African country to qualify for the mundial was shown the exit door just a few months before the start of the tournament in Qatar.

Opening up on how he feels, Coach Vahid Halilhodžić has disclosed that Morocco took something from him and he can never forgive them.

“You know, I didn’t comment on anything about Morocco at all. Journalists from Morocco, from the region are calling me but it’s hard for me to say anything.

“And these words cannot wash away my bitterness and cannot make up for what I missed with this tournament.

They took away my pride. I cannot forget or forgive them because it was supposed to be my farewell to my coaching career. That’s all I can say on the subject,” Coach Vahid Halilhodžić said as quoted by Goal.

In the absence of Vahid Halilhodžić, Morocco appointed countryman Walid Regragui to take charge of the Atlas Lions.

He did an exceptional job and guided Morocco to finish fourth at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
