Taarabt picks club over country



Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt has revealed that he refused playing with Morocco at Afcon and leave his club that is suffering in the English league.

” My team is at the bottom of the league, and I cant leave them to play at Afcon. I talked with my family and close friends and they supported me with this decision” Adel said to Morocco TV .

”The team gives me a lot of good things and I cant leave them . I know that my decision makes many Moroccan fans angry with me but I want to help my team” he added.

“ Morocco has many good players and even without me they will do well at Afcon”.

The Queens Park Rangers midfielder was accused of disrespecting Rachid Taoussi in an exchange of text messages and the head coach dropped him from the Lions squad before the Moroccan FA asked him for an apology.

Taarabt who was started his career with Lens moved to Queens Park Rangers at 2009 from Tottenham Hotspur.

Morocco will start their matches against Angola on Saturday at the National Stadium.
