Meeting in Marrakech on Monday March 05 on the sidelines of the first symposium on women’s football, Fouzi Lekjaa declared that Morocco is ready to support Cameroon in organizing the 2019 African Cup of Nations.

“We wanted  to stop rumors that have been circulating in the public square for a while. I reiterate the position of the Federation and the Kingdom of Morocco,” Fouzi Lekjaa said

“The kingdom supports our Cameroonian friends. And the Federation at the disposal of the Cameroonian Federation to make the Afcon in Cameroon a celebration of African football.

“So the rumors are over (…) Relations between the King of Morocco and President Biya of Cameroon are relations that are above the football manifestations, “he assured the public.
