Munir appeals to Court of Arbitration for Sport in bid to switch from Spain to Morocco

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Deportivo Alaves forward Munir El Haddadi has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) in his bid to switch allegiance from Spain to Morocco.

CAS said in a statement that Munir had appealed jointly with the Moroccan Football Federation (FMF) after FIFA turned down his request on March 13.

The appeal included a request for a decision by mid-May "in order for the player’s sporting nationality to be decided prior to the commencement of the FIFA 2018 World Cup," said CAS FIFA rules bar players from switching allegiance once they have played a competitive international even if they hold dual nationality.
