FOOTBALL – ‘Hurricane Regragui’: the economist who has the Arab world on its feet in three months (Morocco)

With Portugal and Morocco collaborating in the Al Thumama Stadium, in Doha, Saturday, 10 of this month (3pm from mainland Portugal), in the subsequent quarterfinals of the World Cup in Qatar, Arab. the nation, which in the ‘Lions of the Atlas’ the first workforce to succeed in the highest stage in the final 22 rounds of the World Cup since 1930 – and the fourth time that Africa has a consultant in the high eight – curiosity can be very excessive. Walid Regragui, a Moroccan born in France, aged 47, who in three months at the helm gave the workforce pragmatism, whether or not he had a level in Economic and Social Sciences.

‘Hurricane Regragui’, as the media name him – and it is good to recollect – has been guiding the ‘Atlas Lions’ for greater than three months, or 100 days: it was on August 31 that the Federal Federation of Morocco changed the Bosnian Vahid Halilhodzic, who his disloyalty together with Ziyech – the participant of Chelsea and, Achraf Hakimi (PSG, the greatest stars in the nationwide workforce) – in the Qatar workforce ended, resulting from the finish of the confrontation with the gamers. federation, destroyed the former Yugoslavia worldwide and taught the job.

It goes with out saying that the success that Walid Regragui has achieved in Morocco is superb… and himself in simply three months.

He is the first African to take the determination from the black continent to the “quarters” of the World Cup – till now, in the earlier three teams of groups from Africa in the ‘quarters’, they’d specialists and ‘how do they know. ‘ from different areas (and continents) at the helm: guests.

Born in Corbeill-Essones, an space south of Paris – he has a French nationality, too -, Walid Regragui was a defender who, though he handed by way of the indicators of the first and second echelons of France and Spain – RC Paris, Toulouse, Ajaccio, Racing de Santander, Sporting de Gijón and Grenoble, amongst others – added 45 ‘Atlas Lions’ caps. For the golf equipment he represents, with the image of Corsica (Ajaccio) he celebrated the title of the second division of France in 2001/02. For this cause, in 2012/13, he was not stunned by his first name to be an assistant in the Moroccan nationwide workforce.

The remainder of the opinion was good. And the former proper-again, who claims to be a Muslim and observes Ramadan and fasting religiously, graduated as a trainer in 9 years.

Regragui began at FUS Rabat in 2012/13, however in 2020 he confronted the Qatari champions Al Duhail. He returned to Morocco to steer Wydad Athletic Club, from Casablanca, to the nationwide title and victory in the African Champions in July this 12 months.

But, when he quits soccer, the ‘weeds’ in Economic and Social Sciences, a diploma of schooling to sacrifice the stress of his father that made him neglect his research – and the penalty to cease taking part in soccer, in the youth groups of Racing de Paris. – will make a approach.

If Portugal has Fernando Santos, who has a level in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering, at the helm of Selection, and for eight years now, on the different hand, Morocco brings us a “shock” whose success in choice, in equity. three months of the Regragui Economics diploma, it’s already a ‘subject material’. Make a promise.
