Coach Jamal Sellami, who led Morocco’s locally-based team to glory at the 2018 African Nations Championship, will soon meet with his bosses at the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) to discuss his future.
Sellami’s contract with the FRMF expired at the end of the CHAN tournament, with the coach leading his players to a 4-0 win over Nigeria in the final on Sunday.
According to Moroccan media outlet Al Ahdath Al Maghribia, the 47-year-old will meet with FRMF president Fouzi Lekjaa and technical director Nasser Larguet in the coming days.
One proposal said to be on the table is a redeployment to the technical team of the senior national side, currently led by Frenchman Herve Renard. In this role, Sellami would help prepare the team ahead of their return to the World Cup finals later this year.
Another option would see Sellami continue in his current role as the coach of the locally-based team, preparing for the next CHAN tournament in Ethiopia in 2020, as well as serving as a scout for Renard’s senior side.
"We fulfilled all the objectives assigned to us. New players shone and others won contracts abroad. Now I'm going to see what is offered to me since my contract has expired," said Sellami at the press conference following the CHAN final.
