The player who will be judged on December 18 for “provoking hatred on grounds of religion” should no longer wear the colors of the Aiglons.
We will no longer see Youcef Atal with the red and black jersey of OGC Nice. Nice Matin affirms that Nice leaders want to separate as quickly as possible from the suspended international since December 18 after the publication of a video relaying the words of a preacher who called “a dark day for the Jews” And “to accompany the hand of the Palestinians if they throw stones» following the Hamas attack on Israeli territory on October 7. He should be transferred during the winter transfer window which opens on January 1, 2024, indicates the daily.
No club currently interested in his transfer
“The Nice staff, and more particularly the shareholder Ineos, did not appreciate finding themselves at the heart of a new controversy because of this communication gap for a player under contract until 2024», adds Nice-Matin. No club has yet come forward to recruit the right back.
Also sanctioned by the LFP Disciplinary Commission which had suspended him for seven Ligue 1 matches, the Algerian returned to the field a few days ago with his selection against Mozambique, a month and a half after his last appearance . Placed in police custody last Friday and targeted by an investigation for “incitement to hatred on grounds of religion», Atal will be tried on December 18.
