HM the King expresses, on this happy occasion, His warmest congratulations to all the components of the Wydad Club, including players, coaches, managers, technical and medical staff as well as fans, saying that he is convinced that this so deserved win could not be achieved without the intense efforts made throughout this competition and the spirit of competitiveness and patriotism displayed by the members of the team.
