Renard said that he won't select players who choose to play in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar... because he questions their motivation as moroccan players go there just for the paycheck.

He made one exception with Boussoufa who plays for Al Jazira.

A 23 man squad so early shows Herve got his boys ready

I didn't realise he's the guy that used to manage Cambridge United. What a man he has become.

Ricardo Gareca also has the same philosophy. As does Jose Pekerman. Jefferson Farfan was frozen out of the national team for some time because he was injured 90% of his time at Al-Jazira. Fredy Guarin had a similar case in China.

Makes me wonder why Brazil and Argentina insist with profile. Lavezzi was in China and shouldn't have been called up anymore yet he was. Same with Renato Augusto and Paulinho for Brazil.

Mascherano is the next example.
