• NT: Mazraoui chooses Morocco over Netherlands

    (Football-Oranje) Ajax defender Noussair Mazraoui has turned down advances from the Dutch national team and will represent Morocco.

    The 20-year-old was born in the Netherlands but has represented Morocco at youth level. Ronald Koeman spoke with Mazraoui and his agent last week in order to convince him to choose Netherlands.

    However, Mazraoui has confirmed to De Telegraaf that he has chosen Morocco and will accept their call-up for the African Cup of Nations qualifier against Malawi next month.

    Mazraoui told De Telegraaf, “Mr. Koeman had an excellent story and presented the plan he had for me. That impressed me and I am really honoured that he has done this effort for me.”

    However, Morocco is the youngster’s choice, ‘I am now looking forward to meeting Hervé Renard, the national coach of Morocco, and the players.’
