We now know the reasons for Turki Al Sheikh’s visit to Morocco. The president of the Saudi Entertainment Authority has indeed met King Mohammed VI, as evidenced by the photo published on Tuesday night on the Facebook page of the Arab Club Cup.
On the photo, we see the president of the Arab Football Union posing alongside the Sovereign.
And that’s not all. We also learn that the next edition of the Arab Club Cup will be called “Mohammed VI Champion Clubs Cup”, and that the final of the competition will be played in Rabat in 2020.
Recall that a few days ago, Turki Al Seikh had announced that he was going to Morocco. “I’m going to Morocco,” he wrote on social networks. An announcement that surprised many Moroccans. The Saudi leader had indeed been the subject of several sharp criticism in Morocco for having chosen to publicly support the US file for the organization of the 2026 World against the Kingdom.
Note that this visit comes just days after the visit of Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita to Saudi Arabia, and his meeting with King Salman and Crown Prince Mohamed Ben Salman.
