Fulham midfielder Adel Taarabt has been recalled by Morocco nine months after being asked to apologise for insulting the coach, reports BBC Sport. The midfielder, on loan with the Cottagers from Championship QPR, is in the squad for a friendly against South Africa on 11 October.

In January, Morocco demanded an apology from Taarabt for insulting Rachid Taoussi, who had left him out of the Africa Cup of Nations squad.

The 24-year-old was accused of "disrespecting" the coach in text messages and in the Moroccan media.
