Imprimer PDF

Casablanca, Morocco, January 10 (Infosplusgabon) - Three legends, Nourredine Naybet (Morocco), Robert Kidiaba (DR Congo) and Adel Chedli (Tunisia) have been appointed ambassadors for the Total African Nations Championship (CHAN) Morocco 2018.


According to the CAF media outlet, the trio were named in recognition of their contributions and impact towards the game in their various capacities, and will conduct ambassadorial duties during the tournament, which will run from 13 January to 4 February.


Naybet is a fans favourite in his native Morocco. He was born in Casablanca, where he enjoyed a successful spell, particularly the 1992 CAF Champions League before leaving for Europe. In a 16-year playing career, he donned the colours of Atlas Lions a staggering 115 times.


Winner of the first edition of the CHAN in 2009 with DR Congo, Kidiaba earned global status with Lubumbashi-based club, TP Mazembe, where he has won virtually every title at both domestic and continental levels. He is famous for his signature “bum dance” goal celebration.


On 25 February 2011 in Omdurman, Sudan, Chedli made history by becoming the first and only player to win both Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and CHAN titles. A member of the victorious Tunisian 2004 AFCON winning squad, he won the CHAN at the age of 35 as Tunisia beat Angola 3-0 in the 2011 final.


The CHAN opening match will be between hosts Morocco and Mauritania at the Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca.
