Good news for Khalid Boutaib. After being blocked by his former club, Zamalek, the Moroccan international can finally be part of the first team of Le Havre, which recruited him during the previous transfer window.
Khalid Boutaïb will be able to play his first match this Saturday, on behalf of the 20th day of Ligue 2, in Amiens and can therefore claim a place in Paul Le Guen’s group.
Last October, Zamalek prevented the Atlas Lion from taking his first steps with the Ligue 2 club, despite his physical and technical preparation and the willingness of his coach, Paul Le Guen, to make him play.
Indeed, this decision followed an administrative and legal problem related to the divorce under tension between the Moroccan and the Egyptian club Zamalek.
The former Strasbourg player had left the conflicting Egyptian club, so some documents would still be missing so that Boutaïb could obtain his international work certificate.
Before landing in Le Havre, Boutaib joined Zamalek last year from Yeni Malatyaspor for an estimated amount of around 1.50 million euros. The 32-year-old got off to a good start in Cairo, scoring five goals and providing two assists in 19 games in all competitions last season.
