“Ramadan Kareem for all the Muslims in the world. I want to thank Emirats people because I know they supported Morocco in the world cup, and I am very proud about that (the best coach prize) Sky News.
With my team we wanted to show to the world that, in the future incha’Allah, an African team or a middle Eastern team can win the world cup , with confidence and support. I think it’s time to say it’s possible.
I want to thank my king, Mohamed 6 (king of Morocco) for his support, the Moroccan team, all the Muslims of the world and African people because I felt their support in every game. We’ll do it next time incha’Allah.”Walid Regragui, to Sky News Arabia TV
