Morocco Boss Names The Best Defender In The World After Hakimi

Morocco coach Vahid Hailhodzic believes that Atlas Lions star Achraf Hakimi is one of the best two right-backs in the world, with only Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold able to rival him for the title of the best in their position.

Hakimi is emerging as one of the standout talents at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations, having netted a sensational free kick from 35 yards to down Malawi in Morocco’s Round of 16 triumph on Tuesday.

The goal came in the aftermath of a near-identical set piece strike from the wideman in the North Africans’ 2-2 group-stage draw with Gabon, prompting Halilhodzic to celebrate the impact of the Paris Saint-Germain full-back.

“You can see this boy is one of the best talents, and one of the best players in the world in his position,” Halilhodzic told GOAL. “Him and Trent Alexander-Arnold are the two best full-backs in the world.

“The goals he scored last time, and this evening, are fantastic, and you don’t always see that kind of thing.

“Let’s congratulate him for this, and for putting his talents at the availability of the team—not everyone does this.”
