Paris Saint-Germain’s Moroccan right-back, Achraf Hakimi, has been given the green light to participate in the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. This decision marks a significant milestone in Hakimi’s career as he pursues his dream of representing his country at the prestigious event.

PSG coach Luis Enrique had hinted at the possibility last week during a press conference, acknowledging the need to balance player aspirations with club interests.

“There is one thing, it is the desire of a player. And the other, very different, are the interests of the club, which pays the players.

We will analyze each case individually and make the best decision for the club and the player. There must be a consensus,” he stated.

Hakimi’s case appears to have been favorably received, as reported by L’Equipe.

Unlike his teammates Warren Zaire-Emery and Bradley Barcola, who are set to play in the Euro with the French team, Hakimi has no other international commitments this summer.

This scenario has paved the way for a positive resolution.

“It will be on a case-by-case basis,” PSG officials confirmed, reflecting a pragmatic approach.

Hakimi, who had a demanding season with PSG, reaching the Champions League semi-finals and participating in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) until the round of 16, is seen as an asset the club is willing to support.

The decision also aims to maintain a strong relationship with the player amid frequent transfer rumors.

Allowing Hakimi to fulfill his Olympic ambition is expected to enhance his morale and commitment, avoiding potential frustration that could impact his performance and relationship with the club.

His inclusion as one of the three over-23 players permitted at the Olympics, alongside potential teammates like Brahim Diaz (Real Madrid) and goalkeeper Munir El Kajoui, is a strategic move.

Hakimi’s Olympic participation aligns with PSG’s broader strategy of nurturing player satisfaction and loyalty.

His new selection partner, Eliasse Ben Seghir of AS Monaco, is also likely to be released for the Games, further strengthening Morocco’s squad.

This decision underscores PSG’s recognition of the Olympics’ importance to their players, balancing club and personal aspirations in a way that benefits both parties.

As the countdown to Paris 2024 continues, Hakimi can now prepare to represent Morocco on the Olympic stage, marking another high point in his distinguished career.
