Some members of the Moroccan national team’s delegation have been harassed at their hotel in the Spanish capital Madrid as the team prepare for a friendly against Peru on Tuesday at the Svitas Metropolitano stadium.

Today, on Monday, the Spanish newspaper “AS” reported that the delegation of the Moroccan national team was subjected to racist treatment.

AS explained that this group of employees targeted the Moroccan national team players with racist language in comments on photos they posted on their personal Instagram accounts.

In their comments, the staff complained about the delay at the hotel until late, unlike normal days, due to the suhoor for the players of the Moroccan national team.

The hotel management immediately apologized to the Moroccan team, expressing deep dissatisfaction with such ugly behavior.

The hotel issued a statement on behalf of one of its officials, saying: “We want to apologize to everyone who was offended by what happened. Personally, I am a Muslim and an Arab, and I celebrate Ramadan, as do many of my colleagues in this hotel, and for this reason, we feel hurt by what happened, like any Muslim in the world.

He continued: “We want to condemn any act of racism and repeat our apologies. We confirm that all those involved in what happened do not belong to the hotel, but are temporarily working for us during peak hours, and they were kicked out, and we will make what they did available to the police (to investigate) this crime.

It is noteworthy that the Moroccan national team went to Spain after a historic victory over their Brazilian counterpart (2: 1) in an international match that brought them together last Sunday evening, at a large stadium in the Moroccan city of Tangier, to become the first Arab team and the second from the brown continent , who beat Selesao After Cameroon beat them in the last round of the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
