Baku. 15 June. REPORT.AZ/ Morocco categorically denies the “defamatory accusations against its 1998 World Cup bid team that they had offered inducements to secure votes,” Report informs, the National Moroccan Olympic Committee and the Royal Moroccan Football Federation said Sunday.
These allegations have tarnished the image of a country that has always respected the values of integrity and fairness as founding principles, the same sources pointed out in a statement.
Given the considerable efforts to comply with FIFA’s requirements for hosting the World Cup, Morocco would have deserved a better treatment instead of tendentious and baseless rumors, the statement added.
