Legendary Moroccan midfielder and one of the first African major stars alongside Benbarek. Mahjoub played mainly as left winghalf and inside forward, player with fantastic technique and dribbling, real virtuoso with the ball. But he was very versatile player who was useful in defensive tasks, could score himself and feed the strikers with passes, pretty strong and skillful on the ball, very elegant and lively but lacked self confidence. The left wing half began his career with the U.S. Marocaine Casablanca and moved, like many players before and after him (eg Mario Zatelli and Just Fontaine), from the French-controlled French North Africa in the professional league. 1951, secured the Racing Club Paris his services. Mahjoub also was not only preparers, but even a goal threat. The capital club struggled during this time but to avoid relegation, he could not avoid 1953. Abderrahman Mahjoub then moved to OGC Nice, where he fed together with the right half Cuissard strikers "Justo" Fontaine, Ujlaki and Nurenberg with edges and templates. In Division 1 it reached but only at 8 Place, but in the cup struggled through the OGC to the final and won it 2-1 to Olympique Marseille. This season 1953/54 was also Mahjoub national team (see below). Nevertheless, he went back to racing in the same summer in Paris - and this time he remained there for six years. Another national title, he could not win this time, but the club each season ended on a single-digit table position; 1959 and 1960 he was ranked third with one the most successful. From 1958 (and again in 1963/64) Mahjoub played there again with Joseph Ujlaki, his former teammate at Nice, in a team. 1960 attracted the Zweitdivisionär SO Montpellier from Morocco to southern France, and its share of league championship and promotion was considerable. It was followed by two more seasons in the Languedoc, which the team in 1962 with a good midfield rank graduated in 1963 but only as a last but one. The external rotor did not play again in division 2, and therefore went for the third time to Racing Paris. When the RCP was relegated in 1964 also - albeit in the third last until the Barrages - Mahjoub ended his professional career in France and played four years for AC Wydad Casablanca. From December 1953 to October 1955 denied Abderrahman Mahjoub 7 A-international caps for France. His debut at Luxembourg on 8-0 came just in time, so he was nominated for the 22er line-up of Bleus in the World Cup finals 1954th In Switzerland, he came in first round win over Mexico for use, could prevent the premature retirement of the Equipe Tricolore not. After this World Cup in France in particular convinced Mahjoub away wins against world champions Germany (1954, 3-1 in Hanover), Spain (1955, 2-1 in Madrid) and Switzerland (1955, 2-1 in Basel). Since he lacked in this particular circle, but consistency of performance, of his new coach Albert Batteux soon replaced regularly by Jean-Jacques Marcel. From 1968, Mahjoub worked in Morocco as a coach, 1964-1967 (jointly with Mohamed Massoun) and again in 1971, he oversaw the local national team. Later he opened a restaurant ("Rick's Café") in Casablanca. His five-year older brother Mohamed Mahjoub (born 12 February 1924) was also from 1947 to 1953 and played professional football players, including two years with French football club Olympique Marseille. Mahjoub died in 2011 after a long illness.
