Video Ziyech scored against Burnley
Hakim Ziyech has not played for the national team since June 2021. After that, he announced that he would retire at the national team level. Everything would be nothing to talk about if the president of the Moroccan football association (FRMF) Fouzi Lekjaa did not confirm that Ziyech was called up to the national team.
In the latest focus list aiming to qualify for the World Cup in March, Ziyech is listed. However, immediately after knowing the information, the Chelsea star immediately refused to be recruited. He shared on Instagram:
“I love my country and playing for the national team has been the honor of my life. So I am sad to announce that although the FRMF President confirmed I was called up, I will not be returning. “
“I’m sorry to let my fans down, this has not been an easy decision. Sadly I feel I have no other choice.”
“Despite dedicating himself to the team for the past 6 years and supporting them throughout his life, but the management continues to release false information about me. Their actions made it impossible for me to continue on the national team. I already know the summoning results at the same time as others, so I am making this statement to make sure you hear the truth directly from me. My focus right now is on Chelsea.”
