Champions Trophy, PSG-Lille: Why Achraf Hakimi is shouted at in Tel Aviv


The Moroccan right-back, flagship recruit of the Parisian summer, was whistled by a good part of the public installed at the Bloomfield stadium of Tel-A

Diplomatic relations between the states of the Arab-Muslim world and the State of Israel are not in good shape.

Nothing new on the horizon and tensions were even rekindled by the conflict between Israel and Palestine between mid-April and the end of May 2021, killing nearly 300 people, including 250 in the Gaza Strip alone.

Flagship rookie of the Parisian summer, bought 70 million euros including bonus, Achraf Hakimi seems to pay for these tensions this Sunday evening during the Champions Trophy, between PSG and Lille disputed in Tel Aviv (Israel).

Moroccan international, the right side was shouted from his first touch of the ball by a good part of the 29,000 spectators present at Bloomfield Stadium.

And it was repeated every time the Real Madrid-trained player touched the ball.

Clear political considerations towards a man who has never hesitated to support the Palestinian people, especially on his social networks like last May.

#FreePalestine 💔🙏🏾🤲🏽

As explained in our columns this Sunday, the choice of Israel and Tel Aviv by the Professional Football League (LFP) has caused some questions, especially within PSG, owned by a Qatari shareholder. Following the bombing of Gaza, Qatar announced a donation of $ 500 million to help with reconstruction. Within the club in the capital, doubts were expressed about the maintenance of the Trophy in Tel Aviv. Even if PSG has never officially requested a change of location.
