Morocco coach Badou Zaki has stoked regional fires after saying Algeria will fail at the Afcon.
Algeria are hot favorites in the coming African Cup after a good year at senior level and with individually fine players.
[contextly_sidebar id=”vuV495FG9ipNZ7Vv7sUPahsWIIHPLsBr”]But the boss of the Atlas Lions says the Fennecs will crash out of the group stage.
“ I do not believe that the Algerians will exceed the first round of this tournament in the face of tough teams like Ghana, Senegal and South Africa.” Zaki says.
His reason? Because they lack the character and pedigree to compete.
Morocco will not be part of the next two tournaments after being punished for pulling out of next year’s event.
