It was a decision that surprised many. Moroccan international Hakim Ziyech has just announced his international retirement.
“I will not return to the selection and it is my final decision. I focus on my club, with which I hope to achieve the best results and win titles. (…) I am sorry for the supporters and I understand their disappointment,” said the Chelsea player in an interview, currently in Abu Dhabi for the Club World Cup.
This means that even after the departure of Vahid Halilhodzic, Ziyech will not return to the selection. A decision that aroused the incomprehension of many Moroccan supporters.
