Frenchman Hervé Renard has emerged as a candidate to take over the vacant Egypt post, according to comments Thursday from Egypt FA board member Essam Abdel-Fattah.

Abdel-Fattah said that Renard is among a quintet of potential candidates that include others coaching in the 2015 (AFCON).

“There is a meeting on Saturday between the Board of Directors of the Federation with the technical committee in charge of studying the five foreign coaching candidates,” Abdel-Fattah added in televised remarks.

Renard is currently in charge of ’s national team, having just led them to the AFCON final where they’ll take on Ghana’s Black Stars.

In 2012, Renard led Zambia to its first-ever AFCON title, beating his current team in a penalty shootout.

The Egyptian FA previously declared that the Pharaohs’ next coach would come from one of the 2015 AFCON semi-finalists.

Egypt has been without a coach since it dismissed Shawky Gharib in November.
