While in Morocco, Achraf Hakimi returned to Ksar El-Kebir, his mother's hometown. Welcomed like a real superstar


While enjoying his vacation with Kylian Mbappé in New York, then in Marrakech, it was without the Parisian number 7 that Achraf Hakimi decided to pay a very special visit to the inhabitants of Ksar El-Kebir on Tuesday.

Author of a historic epic with the Moroccan selection during the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the PSG defender was welcomed with great fanfare for his return to his mother's hometown.

Between frescoes in his image, songs in his honor and crowds of residents dressed in his jersey, there was something to smile about for the Parisian side.

"Thank you to all the inhabitants of Ksar El-Kebir, I am very happy," he told local media.

We continue to work, do good things for the culture of Morocco and we will continue to do good things for Moroccans.

“Accompanied by his mother and his brother, the Atlas Lion was able to attend the change of name of the municipal stadium which is now called “Achraf Hakimi Stadium”.

“Thank you to the mayor of the city.

I'm very happy there, it's my mother's city and we spent a lot of time here when we were children, ”launched the Parisian amid warm applause from the public before returning to his stadium.

Despite the festive atmosphere, the authorities present on the spot were quickly overwhelmed by the raging supporters.

The Kesraouis, inhabitants of Ksar El-Kebir, managed to invade the lawn where the Moroccan international was.

So it was sitting against the stadium fence, surrounded by security guards and a crowd ready to do anything to get a closer look, that Hakimi and his family ended their visit.
