On Friday, French Ligue 1 club FC Toulouse posted a tweet celebrating the call-up of its Atlas Lion Boukhlal Zakaria to the Moroccan national team. But the post was removed and later changed. A second reappeared in place of the first. What happened?
The French club are said to have come under pressure because the post in question featured Boukhlal against a background of the map of Morocco from Tangier to Lagouira.
A second post has therefore been published. It shows Boukhlal waving the national flag without the map of Morocco along with the following comment: ‘‘At TéFéCé, we only know one thing: that Zakaria Boukhlal is selected with the Atlas Lions ”.
Several Moroccan Internet users reacted.
