Agent Clarifies Chiefs Links To ASFAR Captain

ASFAR captain Mohamed Rabie Hrimat is likely to earn a move to the Gulf despite widespread interest in Africa.

The 29-year-old defensive midfielder was named the 2023/24 Botola Pro Player of the Season after a scintillating campaign with the club.

Despite coming second behind Raja Athletic Club, Hrimat played a pivotal role in their club record points tally, and most goals scored in a single Botola Pro season in its history.

He only missed one game all season, with 13 goals and eight assists in 37 league games overall, been integral to incoming Kaizer Chiefs head coach Nasreddine Nabi’s system, which has seen Amakhosi being linked with the player.

But his representative denied the speculation that’s emerged in Moroccan media of late when probed by this website.

“We cannot decide now on offers coming from the Gulf region, only after the King’s Cup final,” Hicham Debhi tells iDiski Times.

“After the game, they will decide the future of the player. There’s one more year on his contract and there’s a lot of offers in the Gulf area.”

Nabi himself distanced himself from the speculation after their win over MAS Fes on Sunday evening; “As for the issue of the players, there is no truth in the news that I will bring players from ASFAR to Kaizer Chiefs.”

Hrimat has been one of the leading figures for ASFAR since his arrival from KAC Kénitra in 2020, winning the Throne Cup and Botola Pro during his stay thus far.
