Video: Morocco’s Nordin Amrabat Gets Mad at Saudi Coach


Rabat – Moroccan football star Nordin Amrabat does not like to stay on the bench.

On Friday, the footballer expressed dissatisfaction for being benched in Friday’s game with his Saudi football team, Al Nassr.

“I came to participate in the clubs’ tournament, not to serve as a substitute. This is the second time the coach has made this choice and I have to see what he will decide for the next matches,” said the footballer.

Amrabat joined Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia in July with a 3-year contract for a € 3million salary per year.

Despite his anger over being a substitute in two games, Amrabat said that he is happy he joined the Saudi team. “I am happy to be here and happy with the love that fans have for me.”

The footballer shared in a July 16 tweet that he was excited about his new club with social media fans after joining Al-Nassr Riyadh.

“Happy and excited with my adventure. Looking forward to meet these amazing @AlNassrFC fans,” wrote the football player.

Several other Moroccan football players chose to join Saudi clubs over the summer transfer season, including Karim El Ahmadi, who signed a two-year contract with Al Ittihad Jeddah in July.
