Women football in Marocco: Khadija Al Filali, soccer player in the team “Hilal Temara”

How and when did your passion for football develop?

My passion for football was born five years ago, it comes from my family, as they are quite into exercise.

What is women’s football like in Morocco? Is it popular?

Women’s football in Marocco is slowly evolving, they have just started letting girls join into clubs. However, not matter the skills, there is yet no financial backing, so lack of sponsors and not highly paid at a professional level.What do your family and friends think about you playing football

They encourage me to play football because it is my passion and my hobby, and they have encouraged me to continue playing.

If you could play football anywhere in the world, where would you play and why?

I would love to play in London with Stoke City, because London is the highest ranked place in the world for women’s football. I hope it will be my next destination!

What are your plans for your career in football?

I have a lot of plans! First, completion of my studies and development of my skills, then joining Stoke City Club, onto professionalism with major clubs!

Do you prefer working with female or male coaches, and why?

I think the best coaches, as well as those who are more skilled, are male trainers.
