Mohamed Ihattaren's career in a new, sad turn!

Among the vast waste of modern football history, it is impossible not to remember Mohamed Ihattaren. PSV's big hope in his debut at just 17 years old, the restless attacking midfielder exploded during the 2019-2020 season. becoming a member of the first team with the change of 7 goals and 9 goals in 33 games. A fanfare debut rewarded with selection in A with the Netherlands (remained on the bench, op.a.) which foreshadowed a career rich in successes and worthy of the talent born in Utrecht.

Bad choices, personal problems and bad influence held Ihattaren back

However, his life changed at the end of 2019 with the death of his father Mostafa. Mentally affected by the death of his role model, the left-hander is less influential on the field and is out of the machine during the 2020-2021 season. under the command of Roger Schmidt. The arrival of the German technician will obviously slow down the career of the prodigy from PSV, who had a conflicting relationship with Schmidt. However, the late Mino Raiola, his former agent, defended the attacking midfielder wholeheartedly: “What happened yesterday is absolutely unworthy of PSV. We do not agree with the content, but the way it is presented is unacceptable and unacceptable. Does Schmidt need a third party like a player group to have an opinion?

In that sense, I am happy that Schmidt was not Maradona's coach, because then we would never have seen the real Maradona.”

Playing just once with Ajacides during this loan spell, he remained in the Dutch capital where the hope of a resurgence was then current, embodied by Alfred Schreuder, the new coach. However, off-sport problems with the Mocro Maffia, a mafia organization operating in Belgium and the Netherlands and made up of clans whose members are mainly Moroccan immigrants, mar his preparation. The native of Utrecht will therefore not play with Ajax, his loan was terminated for the winter, and Ihattaren ends the season in Turin's Juventus, where he still does not play…

However, in a new twist, a day after his arrival, his contract has already been terminated after his salary demands were deemed excessive by the Turkish board. Still free, the former PSV virtuoso joins Czech side Sparta Prague this winter. Another hope to see his destiny taken back into his own hands. And another one that goes up in smoke.

Because of this, talks are reportedly underway to terminate the contract with the Dutch player as soon as possible.
