The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) has denied information about the amount of financial compensation received by former coach Vahid Halilhodžić after amicable separation.
“The amount of money stated on media is purely imaginary,” the Federation said in a press release issued Saturday, stressing that both parties ended the contract amicably.
According to the Moroccan labor code, Halilhodžić has received the equivalent of his three months salary as stipulated in his contract signed with the FRMF, it added.
The monthly salary of the former coach does not exceed MAD 800,000 as previously announced during his presentation to the press, according to the same source.
Deploring the dissemination of such false information at a time when the National A team is preparing for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, the FRMF urged the press to “collect the right information from official sources”.
