On whether the players should be blamed for the exit of the coach, Raouraoua said: “Players are not responsible for the departure of Coach Milovan Rajevac. There was a communication problem that is why he decided to leave. I wonder why they accuse the players. What happened in Tchaker happens in all teams.”
