Honoring the Great King
Wednesday, March 8, 2023 – 4:47 pm
Unsurprisingly, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced in an official communiqué that King Mohammed VI of Morocco has been awarded the “Award for Excellence in Sports for 2022”. And if there is a side that will be offended by this decision, it is certainly the “ruling gang” in the palace of Mouradia in Algiers with their rusty media pipes that almost never stop sending their poisoned arrows into the chest of the country’s president. The Royal Moroccan Football League, Faouzi Lakjaa, without being able to hit him and hold back his ever successful performance.
This is due to the fact that the Algerian media in general and sports in particular cannot touch on any topic at all or talk about the African Football Confederation without including the name of Morocco, as well as sports clubs and national teams of Morocco and the President of the Royal Moroccan Football Federation. where tongues and feathers are used in the fabrication of stories far from logic and objective analysis, as well as insults, false accusations and propaganda of foul play and hatred in order to poison the atmosphere between sports fans in two brotherly countries.
Here we don’t care what noise the decision to crown the king of Morocco will cause among the bad neighbors of the “cabarans” and their slingers and electronic flies, accustomed to provoking Morocco and contradicting its territorial integrity, how they still cannot get rid of the doctrine of hostility towards Morocco , which was introduced into their bowels by their elder Mohamed Boukharuba, known as “Huari Boumedienne”. As for us, CAF announces the preparation of South African President Patrice Motsepe for the presentation of the Sportsmanship Award to King Mohammed VI of Morocco and President of Rwanda Paul Kagame on the sidelines of the FIFA Congress to be held on March 14, 2023 in the capital of Rwanda, Kigali, in the presence of FIFA President Gianni Infantino, presidents of CAF members and a number of football legends.
You see what are the reasons for choosing CAF to honor King Mohammed VI and invite him to officially participate in the Sports Excellence Award 2022 in light of the frenzied media campaign and other attacks launched by the Captains Brigades against his country, especially related to the events that took place in the championship. African Cup of Nations for local players “Al Shaan 2023”, when the Algerian organizers gave the floor to Mandela’s self-serving grandson, “Chief Zolivil”, through which he attacked Morocco and damaged its territorial integrity, and the accompanying insults to the Moroccans some Algerian fans? This choice is nothing less than recognition of the efforts that Morocco is making to develop sports in general and football in particular at the local and continental levels, in terms of signing agreements with African federations, caring for sports infrastructure and hosting sports events…
Morocco has witnessed in recent years, especially last year 2022, a very important development of football, as there is no more evidence of this than the first national football team to reach the semi-finals of the World Cup, whose 22nd edition hosted the capital of Qatar, Doha, in addition to the coronation ” futsal team, the Confederations Cup and the Arab Championship. The Wydad Casablanca sports club also won the African Champions League title, while the Nahdet Berkane club was able to win the Confederation Cup and the Continental Super Cup. The women’s football team then reached the final of the 14th Women in Cannes Africa Cup of Nations hosted in Morocco, and the South African team won the title, not forgetting to snatch a ticket to the 2023 World Cup for the first time. Cup final to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
Then how does the King of Morocco not deserve this honorary award for “sporting excellence” when he, since the accession to the throne of his blessed predecessors, considers this sport, in addition to its great importance in perpetuating the values of patriotism, citizenship and the spirit of solidarity and tolerance are also the main lever of sustainable human development, as well as a factor in education, culture and public health? Thanks to his firm belief in the sports sector as an economic tributary and fertile ground for investment, in an effective educational role in society, as well as in its radioactive and diplomatic role through the achievements of champions, sports clubs and national teams in various international events, and thanks to his high directives aimed at the development of sports in general and football in particular. Today, the sports field has become a large workshop, as fundamental reforms almost do not stop at the level of sports laws and equipment, or at the level of proper management, the provision of financial resources and an arsenal of laws related to the system professional football and much more.
And as we congratulate His Majesty King Mohammed VI on the honor he received at the hands of the African Football Confederation, in gratitude for the great and constant service he renders to the sports sector, which is manifested in the constant care of stadiums and social networks. -sports cars and the construction of new ones, he wanted them to be at the level of Morocco, hosting the largest sporting events. Continental and international, as well as the Mohammed Al-Sas Football Academy and the Mohammed VI Football Complex. just two examples that speak of royal patronage of sports and athletes. Good health and well-being.
