The Mohammed VI Academy is “an important lever” for the outstanding rise of Moroccan football, which performed brilliantly at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, says Senegalese sports journalist Ibrahima Diop.

Morocco’s sports policy, under the leadership of King Mohammed VI, and the investments made to strengthen sports infrastructure and training, notably the Mohammed VI Football Academy, “were quick to bear fruit,” stressed Diop, who is publication director of the magazine “l’Equipe Type”, in a statement to MAP news agency.

Since the launch of the Mohammed VI Academy in 2009, Morocco has begun to reap the rewards of its far-sighted strategy, added Diop, highlighting the national team’s fine performance at the 2022 World Cup and at the start of the 34th edition of the Africa Cup of Nations currently being held in Côte d’Ivoire.

Morocco, which finished 2023 on top of Africa, has also climbed up the world football rankings, in view of its formidable epic in Qatar, noted Diop, who is also a Sports Consultant at Yeuggle TV station.
