Jordan Football Association appoints another Moroccan coach

JORDAN

The influence of Moroccan coaching expertise on Jordanian football continues to grow as the Jordan Football Association (JFA) has swiftly appointed Jamal Sellami as the new head coach of the national team, replacing his compatriot Hussein Ammouta.

Ammouta, who departed due to personal circumstances, leaves behind a significant legacy despite his short tenure.

The 54-year-old Moroccan led Jordan to their first-ever AFC Asian Cup final earlier this year, a remarkable achievement that included victories over footballing powerhouses such as South Korea and Iraq.

Under Ammouta’s guidance, Jordan also impressed in the second round of AFC qualifiers for the FIFA World Cup 2026, topping a challenging group that included Saudi Arabia and Tajikistan.

His impact on the team was evident, with star forward Mousa Al-Tamari recently praising Ammouta’s influence as “clear for all to see.”

The JFA expressed their gratitude for Ammouta’s contributions, stating that his tenure “will always be remembered with gratitude from the Jordanian football family and Jordanian fans.”

As Jordan prepares for the next round of World Cup qualifiers in September, all eyes will be on Sellami to see if he can maintain the momentum and success achieved under his predecessor.

With the draw for the crucial third round of Asian qualifiers imminent, the JFA acted quickly to maintain continuity in their coaching philosophy by appointing another Moroccan, Sellami.

The new head coach brings valuable experience from his previous roles as Morocco’s U-17 and U-20 head coach.

This appointment underscores Jordan’s commitment to the Moroccan school of coaching, which has already yielded impressive results.

Sellami will be tasked with building on the foundation laid by Ammouta as Jordan aims to continue their upward trajectory in Asian football.

The decision to stick with a Moroccan coach suggests that the JFA recognizes the positive impact this approach has had on the national team’s performance.

It also highlights the growing reputation of Moroccan coaches in international football, particularly in the Middle East and North Africa region.
