Dutch Football Club Faces “Moroccan Coup”

The GSC Esdo football club in the Hague is facing controversy following what former members have called a “Moroccan coup”. 52 ethnic Dutch members left the club after
a general members meeting in which an almost completely Moroccan board (except for one member) was elected, due to a massive turnout by Moroccan members.
Former board members claimed that the atmosphere of the club has changed completely since the appointment of the new board. The board confirms that four
teams have resigned from the club. Secretary Mohamed Talhoui commented, “Why they’ve gone, I don’t know, but maybe they didn’t feel comfortable any more at the club”.
