Wydad: Moroccan Club Contemplate Sacking Desabre

Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca have confirmed calling a meeting with coach Sebastien Desabre after a ‘noticeable decline in the level of performance.’

The club probed the new gaffer after a weekend loss to Jadida in the league.

Close sources in Morocco have suggested that the club is set to sack Desabre less than a month since appointment.

The development follows a false start since he was named the head coach on January 21, replacing Serbian tactician Zoran Manojlovic.

Desabre, who handed Joel Madondo his club debut in the Saturday’s 1-0 home loss to Difaa El Jadida, has lost twice, won as many and one draw from five games.

It has not been an easy start for Desabre at Wydad.

After Saturday’s loss, players reportedly showed their discontent to the coach’s tactics and blamed him for the loss.

Desabre was subjected to all forms of insults by the fans as well who pelted bottles after the final whistle.

A torn dressing room and a fallout with club fans have made Wydad to think about letting the Frenchman go. Desabre is in his second spell at the club.

“Wydad Sports Club decided to hold a meeting with the first team coach Sebastian Dossaber, in order to evaluate the overall performance during the recent matches and identify the technical reasons for the noticeable decline in the level of performance,” reads a statement from Wydad.

The club also forwarded player Zuhair Al-Murtaji to the Disciplinary Committee, as a result of his actions during and after the loss to Jadida.

Leaders Wydad have collected 33 points in the league, just two above RSB Berkene in second place.

The side will play host to Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel in the first leg of the CAF Champions League quarter finals.

Desabre, who parted ways with Uganda Cranes after an impressive run in the 2019 AFCON, was sacked by Egyptian club Pyramids on December 19, 2019 just after five months.
