Top officials resign from Moroccan federation

RABAT, Jan 3 (Reuters) - Two top officials from Morocco's soccer federation resigned on Tuesday after they were heavily criticised by the media for firing coach Philippe Troussier two months following the Frenchman's appointment.

The federation's deputy president Mohamed Ozal and secretary general Ahmed Amor sent a resignation letter to the body's president Hosni Benslimane.

'Me and Amor are quite indignant by the press remarks which hurt our dignity and caused our frustrations. We sent our resignation to the federation's president,' Ozal told reporters following a news conference.

Troussier was sacked last Friday and replaced by Moroccan Mohamed Fakhir, who will take charge of the national squad in the African Nations Cup finals in Egypt starting on January 20.

Benslimane did not attend the news conference and it was not immediately clear whether he would accept the duo's resignation.

Ozal accused the press for misleading the public about how much money was paid to Troussier.

'The press has been talking of one billion dirhams paid to Troussier in two months,' he said.

'We respect the press, its freedom but not such slippage in throwing such figures at the public by the press.'

Amor also dismissed media reports suggesting Troussier had been paid large amount of money in compensation when his contract was terminated.

'Mister Troussier was a gentleman. He only took the salary for the two months he worked and the related benefits which totalled 475,000 dirhams ($51,750),' he said.

'(Troussier) wanted to blow up the federation budget by multiplying the hiring of staff including a French doctor. We cannot accept that and we put an end to his contract.'
