Benatia full of praise for ‘impeccable’ new Morocco captain Saiss

The 33-year-old has tipped the new Atlas Lions skipper for greatness
Medhi Benatia has described new Morocco captain Romain Saiss as “impeccable”.

The 30-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers defender was named the new Atlas Lions captain upon Benatia’s retirement from the national team.

Benatia decided to call time on his international career after last year’s Africa Cup of Nations outing in Egypt in which the North Africans suffered a humiliating penalty shootout loss to Benin Republic in the Round of 16.

Saiss has been capped 41 times for Morocco and played at the 2017 and 2019 Afcons as well as the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
