How is the CAN 2017 qualifying campaign going?
At the moment, we're joint top of the group with Cape Verde. We'll be playing them away soon (in March 2016), and that will be a crucial game. If we win, we'll go three points clear of them.
Tell us a little about this Morocco squad…
We have quite an eclectic group. There are experienced players like Mounir Obbadi, Houssine Kharja or Mehdi Benatia. Morocco has some big players. I really hope to achieve great things with the national team.
What are your objectives with the international team in the short and medium term?
We have two objectives. The first is to qualify for CAN 2017. So far, so good. And the second objective is to qualify for the next World Cup. The Moroccan people have been waiting a long time for that. Everyone's eager to play in the World Cup again.
