football news


According to reports, Morocco will be looking to persuade authorities to give Alaves attacker Munir El-Haddadi the approval to switch his allegiance from Spain.

Munir’s dada was Moroccan while his mum is Spanish and hails from the autonomous city of Melilla on the North Coast of Africa, although he has been involved in one competitive game for the Spanish national team.

Morocco secured qualification to Russia 2018 after a 20-year absence and have appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS)

Munir who is currently on a loan deal to Alaves from Barcelona has played just 13 minutes for the Spanish national team in 2014 against Macedonia and is not permitted to play for another national side due to FIFA rules.

The request hasn’t met compliance with Spain’s RFEF although the player is said to have put pen to paper on all relevant forms to initiate the switch.
