Bilal El Khannouss praises San Pedro training facilities



Morocco midfielder Bilal El Khannouss is full of praise for the training facilities in San Pedro ahead of the 34th edition of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations, Cote d’Ivoire 2023.


The Atlas Lions were the first team to touch down for the tournament as they arrived in the West African country on Sunday afternoon to participate in the competition.


The North African giants trained in the country on Monday at Auguste-Denise de San Pédro stadium and were delighted with the facilities.


“I think it’s the best facility I have seen since I played in Africa. The hotel is also perfect,” said El Khannouss.


“We have everything to prepare well,” added the KRC Genk (Belgium) midfielder.


The Atlas Lions are upbeat about their campaign in Cote d’Ivoire, with Bilal El Khannouss saying that they are ready to give it their all.


“We know that the Moroccan supporters are always behind us. We saw it in all competitions. We will do everything to make them proud. I thank them for the support they give us all the time,” said El Khannouss.


El Khannouss is playing in his first TotalEnergies CAF AFCON and will rely on mentorship from the current CAF Awards Coach of the Year, Walid Regragui.


“We will listen to what the coach will tell us, and with that, we will do our best.”


Morocco kicks off their campaign against Tanzania on Wednesday, 17 January. They face DR Congo three days later before wrapping up their final group game against Zambia on 24 January.


All matches will be played at the Laurent Pokou stadium in San Pedro.
