Morocco plans to part ways with its current coach, Walid Regragui.

Despite a failed CAN – elimination at the round of 16 stage – Walid Regragui was confirmed as Morocco coach. But, maybe not for long. There would be talk of throwing him out very soon.

According to information from L'Equipe, the FRMF plans to part ways with Regragui next summer. The idea of ​​Faouzi Lekjaa, its president, is to call on former coach Hervé Renard. The Moroccans are ready to wait until the end of the Olympic Games to hire the French technician.

Renard's return to the head of the Atlas Lions is, however, far from guaranteed. Competition on this issue is fierce. Cameroon, Nigeria, South Korea and Poland are all hoping to secure the services of the highly respected technician. The good news, on the other hand, is that the main person concerned is open to a challenge within a men's national team. Thursday at a press conference, he affirmed that his personal ambition is to be able to experience a third World Cup for men in 2026.

As a reminder, Regragui has been in charge of Morocco since the summer of 2022. After a very satisfactory start, marked by a presence in the last four of the Qatari World Cup, the former Grenoble player has somewhat lost control of his team. Ziyech and others continue their erratic performances, like the last one against Mauritania in a friendly (0-0).
