Aït Menna: – I want to take Moroccan players back from Arab clubs

The Chabab Mohammedia president is keen on bringing Mohammed Ounajem and Hamid Ahadad to the “city of flowers and sports” in an effort to raise the level of Moroccan football.

His ambitions have no limit. With Chabab Mohammedia nearing a second consecutive promotion, now to the Botola Pro, Hicham Aït Menna has just confirmed to MSport that he wants to bring in Ounajem and Ahadad from Zamalek, to bolster their attack for next season.

The powerful president admits it will be tough for SCCM to acquire the aforementioned players, with Ounajem on the radar of Saudi side Al-Wahda, as well as former club Wydad, and Raja having the option to buy Ahadad after his loan move. But he reaffirms that they remain hopeful of signing both attackers. Previously we have reported on Mohammedia’s inquiries for Hassania Agadir’s key players, as well as Hicham El Mejhed and Mohamed El Morabit.

In a separate statement to Maghrib Foot, Aït Menna laid out a well-planned, long-term strategy to bring his club back to the top, after eighteen years of absence. One of his priorities is to attract Moroccans who left the Botola for clubs in the Gulf and Egypt, in order to raise the competitive level of local football. He has also hired scouts and established a technical commitee to discover young talent, both local and from the diaspora in Europe.
