At a press conference this Thursday, to unveil Morocco’s list for the September truce, coach Walid Regragui mentioned the Lamine Yamal file. And the Moroccan technician is very pessimistic about the arrival of the FC Barcelona winger to the Atlas Lions.
Promising talent for FC Barcelona, Lamine Yamal, at only 16 years old, is coveted by the Spanish and Moroccan selections. While the Iberian media announced the imminent call-up of the player by La Roja, the coach of the Moroccan national team, Walid Regragui, expressed his reservations about Morocco’s prospects in this situation. Moreover, the young prodigy was not summoned for the next Moroccan gathering.
” Lamine Yamal has just turned 16. Today he has an important choice to make, but it is a personal choice that must be respected. We’ve been working on this for a long time. We did everything for him to come. The scout from Spain has been following him since he was 10 years old. Today I don’t have the guarantees to tell you that he is coming. We will see if tomorrow he will be in the list of Spain tomorrow. We did our job, we can’t force him to choose his country, but it’s difficult because he’s only 16. We will see in the coming weeks what will happen. », Declared Regragui at a press conference this Thursday, relayed by Footmercato.
At the crossroads in his young career, Lamine Yamal, who has already evolved from the U15 to U19 selection with Spain, is in all likelihood heading towards the A selection of La Roja.
