Ilias Sebaoui van Beerschot was not transferred to a club in the Jupiler Pro League on the final day of the summer mercato.
AA Gent and KV Mechelen were the possible destinations for Sebaoui. In the end he stayed in Beerschot, where he lost his base place in the meantime.
“That’s why it’s not bad that I can take a break now,” he tells Het Nieuwsblad. Sebaoui goes to the promises of Morocco who practice twice against Senegal.
“With the Moroccan promises, we are now looking forward to the Africa Cup in 2023, which will be organized in Morocco. The three best countries of that tournament also qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Those are beautiful and concrete goals.”
The summer was particularly strange for Sebaoui. “My father and my real estate agent kept a lot of pressure off me, but I was more restless than usual. After that failed transfer, I was able to turn the switch fairly quickly. I know I can do better than what I’ve shown this season. I will continue to work hard to regain my level from last season. And with Beerschot we want to promote to 1A again.”
