The association decided at a meeting on 20 February to separate from the coach, Raja Casablanca said. The club did not call a reason for the decision.
The 52-year-old could not fulfill the high expectations of him, wrote the portal “transfermarkt.de”. In December, the Moroccan team missed the title in the Super Cup of the association teams of the African Football Association Caf. Most recently, Raja Casablanca played a draw in Wilmots lead four times.
The club had only committed the Belgian in November. As a coach, he had been working for the national team of his homeland (2012 to 2016) as well as the Ivan Coast (March to November 2017) and Iran (May to December 2019).
Due to “inconsistencies” at the conclusion of the contract, the Iranian Football Association (FFI) had to pay a million heavy severance pay for the 52-year-old. In 2003 Wilmots had been a few months coaches of FC Schalke 04.
